How long does re-indexing take?

Google visits us every Saturday for what appears to be a through re-indexing.

On Staurday 11th & 12thFeb, some of our servers were down for maintenance and our site was slow.

2 weeks later (Feb 23rd), we had fallen of the ranks for many keywords (some where we had been no. 1 for years). Investigation usink link: command showed that pages that were supposed to be linking inwards were no longer recoginised as containing the link. As linking text is very important on Google, naturally the pages are suffering.

Next Saturday (Feb 18h) and every Saturday GoogleBot visited us aggressively as usual, but so far the inward linking text is still not recognised. Any ideas how long before Google will reinclude this importat criteria into it's caculations.

Is it just a question of recoginising that the inward link exists, or does Google need to find it several times before it re-includes it?

It can take up to a month.

hmmm...not what I expected from G. Considering a link has been up for years and it's missed once, it should come back up fast.

Namaste I agree with your msg #4 ... we've had sites down for more than 24 hours but as long as they were well-linked-to from the outside, saw no ill effect. I'm a bit surprised that you fell in the SERP's for this reason. It was always my understanding/impression that if they found trouble connecting, they circled back shortly thereafter, and/or reconfirmed your site's existence via the other links in, etc. Odd.

yes, it's v. odd.
Some deep pages have lost their PR completely...showing grey bar.
Some pages have are not showing their inward links, but are showing their updated content!

It looks like google has data missing on our site. It appears that there are 2 databases: 1 that contains on-page content; this is updated daily. One that contains that entire link structure. This is missing data.

Namaste:

The events of Feb 23 and thereafter may be unrelated to those of Feb 11/12 - quite possible it was simply your turn to experience Allegra.
