Was your server up during the full crawl at the beginning of the month?
If it was up and reachable, you should see traces of GoogleBot in your logs during that period.
Is is very unlikely that a PR7 would be dropped without reason. Did you undertake any major redesign of your site recently?
If not, then you could be facing a Google "hiccup". Nothing's perfect in this world ;)
"Did you undertake any major redesign of your site recently?"
Yes I did, but the site get spider everyday after that? will I have to wait til the next update?
hey teeceo , do backlinks show up for your site?
Only this: "contain the term" thats it. What happen?
Are'nt we all love to know what realy happens when a site dorp from the index or get a pr0?
Unfortunetully, there no answers and do not tell me that the server was down or you are spaming the SE, Cause i reported 2 sites that spam the SE by having duplicate domains with the same products and on of the site has doorway pages and nothing happen to them.
I got gray bar due to the last dance, but my keywords still show high in the search, for example today, i was checking a script result that show me the term the user searched for and the SE and what page in the search it was found.
I took a few of those terms that showed up in Google in the first page and i did the search manually and i could not find any thing up to the first 5 pages.
I think Google will do what Google want and i think that they have different algorithms based on the time of the day.
Don't get me wrong, as a user I love Google, but as SEO it is hard to say.
Thanks for the input night(and others). luckly for me I am not just making a living off of this one site(although it did do very well). Could it be becouse I update the site too much and googlebot was on it when I updated it and he got kicked out?

I don't believe this could be the reason. We all have good reasons to think that GoogleBot is a lot more clever than that ;)
As you never know when GoogleBot will show up, you simply can't hold your breath waiting for it when your site needs to be updated. So this surely happens quite often.
Teeco - Does your show up if you do a search for the URL? Or are you searching for your keywords and not finding it that way?
I had a similar problem my server was up but my database was down when googlebot visited. I had over 1000 static pages with information (products and descriptions) supplied by the database. However, now Google sees all these pages as being dups and only shows 1 page. In effect my site went from being a 1000 page site to a one page site. Any advice on what I can do?
I resubmitted it, but worry that Google will think I'm spamming or it won't update the information.
Why don't you change the page names? google would crawl the new pages and you should be back in business.
Are you sure it is not just one of those hiccups - wrinkle in the matrix kinds of things?
