Hope this will not affect Google rankings.

If it does it should only be very short-term temporary and not a real change in rankings. We know that Google doesn't want to serve any search result links that don't work.

It's has been fixed, it lasted a few hours and affected tons of machines.

I was wondering if this would be reported on WW. I have a few dozen sites using enom's servers and this glitch cost me a few hundred dollars in lost traffic.

I believe this is the 4th time this has happened with enom in the past 2 years. Kind of makes me skiddish about using enom's name servers. And no official word from enom... so we have no idea if this was a bad root update or some kind of dns poisoning.

I do believe that Google maintains their DNS cache for 3 days, so it's possible that Google could find the sites even though first time visitors could not. (Sites would still be reachable by IP address.) My main site which I monitor more closely than the others didn't experience any reduction in crawling by the G-bot and this is the only explaination I can think of.
