    So I did something wreck-less. I switched hosting providers but didn't ensure that the sites would be up continuously. 2 of my sites are out of the top 100, that were on the first page.

    Can I just ping them or do i have to rank them all over again or what. The sites were down for about 4 days. They are MNSs

    This is my biggest "oops" of the year...

    Give it some time. They will definitely come back up. I had one of my top ranking sites down for >3 months. Once it was back online it took about 2 weeks to be back at the old rankings.

    It may be a coincidence, that lost rankings exactly when moved to new host, though if after like a month you won't get back your rankings, probably your MNS were hit by penguin.

    well the others are fine and used the same strategy. I can only wait and see. I'll add an article or do some social bookmarks, 2.0 stuff and see what happens.

    just an update. 1 of the sites have returned to its original ranking. All i did was ping. The other is new so it could just be in the ranking process.

    I don't think it will last for a long time. because its a temporary matter. I think you will regain your ranking soon.
