I let my Domain Expire
How do I recover

I somehow missed renewing and my domain expired on Tuesday night. The registrar parked the domain. I had it back up and running Wednesday mid-morning.

Well, although I had hoped to sneak this by Google my worst fears are realized.

99% of my pages now show just the title and the index page cache is showing the ‘Parked Page’

So… do I just ride this out or do I try to contact Google.

The domain had just come out of the Sandbox 2-3 months ago and my traffic was growing by leaps every day. I would hate to have a 3-6 month set back.

Sounds like the fresh bot just updated you - if youve got the original pages back up on the same domain the freshbot should pick up your regular pages again since it sounds like youre being botted pretty frequently - and should put you right back where you were (standard disclaimer on that "should")

It's coming daily but only looking at the index and leaving. I know it'll come back eventually but I do hope to avoid being sandboxed again.

I did explain in the Google reinclusion form and just got a form email back.... don't know if it did any good.

What is so frustrating is I can't blame anyone but myself.

What is Google's reinclusion form?

Geez... I still have 90 days letf on my domain and I am already getting emails from my registar asking me to renew it.

If you are just so lazy that you can't even renew your domain you deserve to get kicked out of google.

That's a bit unwarranted, surely?
I don't think that calling someone lazy is adding to the discussion, and I'm sure that many webmasters are like me - I'm so busy and working all the hours I can manage, that it's more likely I'd overlook something because I had too much on my plate, rather than too little...

Anyway, that's my tirade over, on behalf of those over-worked and underpaid souls, who'd give their right mouse-button to be able to be lazy, if only for 24 hours <grin>

andy,

do your backlinks still show up?

i have a bad feeling google treat all expiring domains in the same way (i.e. without taking the new whois details into consideration).

That's another reason to pay for many years in advance :))

Maybe this is a reason Google pattented the idea of ranking pages by looking at domain expiry date - neither Google nor their users like if a page dissappears, so if a domain has long time to expire, it means that everybody's safe. So such a page may be considered a bit more valuable from this particular point of view.
