I was wondering why traffic had been dropping the last few days, then panicked when I found that my previously excellent rankings for hundreds of search terms had disappeared, and that most of my site was no longer in Google's index. (Haven't checked Yahoo or MSN yet).
Has anyone else ever done a boneheaded thing like this and, if so, how long did it take for you to recover your rankings?
I'd sure hate to lose 3+ years of work.

But yeah... after you've changed it to index just give it some time and eventually the hits will return lol
These are the main pages, such as Acme Widgets. What I can't tell yet is what effect the noindex had on the sub-pages, such as Acme model XYZ widget. I'll have to wait until this all shakes out and then run a ranking report.
Thanks for the supportive replies.
