    Hi guys,

    I was making some adjustments to my site and incorrectly setup some of the records in the DNS Zone. This left my website unavailable/unresolvable for about 5 days.

    I have got my site back up and running (as if nothing ever happened), but I am concerned if this may have affected my SE Page Ranking?

    Is there anything I should do now that my site is back up?

    Thanks,

    Neil

    Some of your pages may of lost from weight, but hopefully you shouldnt of slipped position.

    I personally would add some back links, and fresh content to let google know your still about :p

    My thoughts were that Google would have attempted to crawl my site in that 5 day downtime window, and as every day progressed, it possibly reduced the frequency of its visits. I was hoping there is a FORCE SITE CRAWL NOW kinda option?

    There is really not anyway to "FORCE" the bots to crawl your sites but some new backlinks will help quite a bit, I would go with some bookmarking links.

    Have you already taken a rankings or PR hit? There usually is one when a site is down for an extended time but the longer you go without one the less likely it is that it is going to happen.
