Most SEOs Will Clean Their Site Versus Start a New Site After Being Penalized

Penalty Poll ResultsA week ago, I asked what would you do if your site gets penalized. The options I gave were (A) Clean Up The Site & Request Reinclusion, (B) Quit the SEO Game and Play Golf or (C) Burn the Site & Start Fresh.

Most SEOs would go with the method of cleaning up their site and requesting a reconsideration request with Google. While only 9% will kill the site and start new.

Here is the break down: :: Clean Up The Site & Request Reinclusion said 61 respondents or 78% :: Quit the SEO Game and Play Golf said 9 respondents or 12% :: Burn the Site & Start Fresh Idea said 7 respondents or 9%

So there you go, go with the masses. Don't crash and burn, clean and sparkle!

Great post! Very interesting... Yes. Of course, rather than burn and start new one, clean up and request for reinclusion is the better way to make an ethical SEO campaign
