Site Was Down For Days - Now Out of SERPs

My web hosting company made my site go away for 4 or 5 days, and now it does not appear in at least the first 10 pages of results I used to rank on page 1 or position 1 in. When I check the index with site: there are over 100 pages, but not my homepage. I have requested reinclusion. Anything else I should or can do? What should I expect?

Thanks

Dont always ask for reinclusion, thats not always the best thing. I bet your site will soon be back, the googlebot has just not confirmed that your site is back i think.

Thanks. What's the downside of asking for reinclusion?

Your site may get a thorough manual inspection - an unpredictable factor. Why go there if re-inclusion is going to happen algorithmically anyway, as it almost always does when a site goes down but later reappears.

Outages is regular on the web. As much as we'd like to think it is all instantaneous, the web does not move that fast. The search engines will come back and visit and see that you still live. There's no reason to call attention with a submit or reinclusion request as that might trigger a manual review.

Thanks for the responses. Makes sense. Hopefully they'll read my explanation and realize there's no need for manual review.

Yep. Tedster is right.

A couple of years ago I made changes to my entire site using a new template. The template had "noindex, nofollow" tags on it, though, and I forgot to change them. A month or so later, when I saw my site disappearing, I discovered the problem. It bounced back.

Don't forget the obvious - find a more reliable host.

I'm definitely looking.
