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")

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> DerekH
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.
