A 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!
