As far as charging someone x-amount of dollars every month to re-submit if it's not necessary, that doesn't seem quite kosher unless they know it probably won't help them much . If they don't care and put cash in your hand, what can you say?
You can tell them it's a mistake to put cash in your hand for something useless. If you don't do that, what's going to happen when they find out for themselves? They'll assume, no matter what other valuable services you've provided, that you've just been fleecing them. And that may mean no more contract, and no recommendations from them to other potential clients.
And Bob, I wasn't trying to muddy the waters. I was directly answering your request to
It makes sense to resubmit if you need to resubmit -- like if the site has been dropped due to something other than a ban. Of course I wasn't saying that it's a good idea to just do it for it's own sake.
show me any site that had either been dropped and then restored or that had it's ranking in the index improved through resubmission.
