Well...all summer my host has been goign down on and on and I have now switched to a new host that is great and has excelent uptime :D
Anyways....apparently the 4 days that the site was down google decided to do it's crawl (just my luck...LOL) and has now compltely taken me off it's index and gave me a Page Rank of 0 (I realy miss my Page Rank of 5....)
Is there anything I can do about this to tell googlebot that i'm online again? Maybe submiting my site?
Or...shoudl I jsut wait and hope that I get my page rank and have my pages reindexed (actually a lot of content is down...so i'm not in the great3est rush...but all content shoudl be restored by a week or so...).
Oh well...not much I can do about it now except hope :-(

So everything shoudl probaly be back to normal with my wonderfull page rank back again (we all seem to obsess ourselves with that pagerank eh...LOL...) and my pages will be reindexed (partially). That is good :D
Well...I guess having it check back in 2 or 3 weeks may be a good thing...because the content won't be up for a while...there is a lot of it and transfering it to a new system is goign to take a while....
As for being indexed a lot...even when most of my site was down...yet i was still incexed with google and had my pagerank....that google spider (well...more like 6 of them at the same time...) would index my forums every other day or so (and i haven't even optimized it for Search Engines yet...I will do that soon thou...it's on my to do list) ;-)
How do you know this if your server was down?
Well...I don't technically know...but from what I hear and that the point that google took me off it's index...I can make the assumption that it was doing something...
