    FML, I wasn't aware this would happen... my site was down for about 4 days, it had constant unique viewers, I was checking my adsense and it had alerts telling me the spiders were crawling my site every day it was down, now that it's back up it's been around 4 days and my site is literally nowhere to be found. Not ranking for any of my keywords and basically freaking out a little bit.

    Any help?, advice?.

    God Bless!

    keep waiting, it happened to me so many times (majorly, when the domain was not renewed). Eventually, the site will be back to its natural positions.

    4 whole days of downtime is really a bad thing..

    don't worry after few days it will start climbing up and hopefully within few weeks rankings will return to previous positions. It just needs some time for G to see the site is back and fully working again..

    I guess the 4-days downtime was causing the issue. Hopefully, rankings will be back soon.

    Btw, Why it took that long to transfer a webhost?

    Thank you all!, I really didn't think 4 days would make such a bad impact on the site.
    It took 4 days because godaddy and hostgator were not updating their DNS info, I guess a glitch on their part. But I didn't make a big fuzz of it, I mean it's just 4 days right?, well... apparently that was the death of me lol.
