    So I'm curious - and I haven't gotten the dreaded message on any of my sites - but... if you got delisted from Google for having too much unnatural backlinking, what if you changed the URL path(s) to the pages the backlinks are bulking pointed to, and make those links hit 404's? Dejuice them and change the URL path for those pages, then backlink again to the new url's using a more balanced link strategy?

    Could possibly work. I think I read that somewhere as a possible method to recover from the penalty.

    assuming all the unnatural backlinks aren't pointed directly at your root domain of course... I would imagine there would be a spread with some pointed at root and some to pages... i suppose you could 404 1 page a week or something and see if the penalty goes away but i wouldn't be suprised if it goes away on it's own after some time and leaves you with some kind of "perma-handicap" or something if you don't make any change to anything after getting the msg... speculation tho

    Or what about another option like buying a new domain, and then forwarding the "old" domain that has been marked for unnatural backlinking?

    Would that work?

    no, the penalty will just move to the new domain.
