I have had my site for over 7 years. Certain keywords ranked my site at #1 on google. Unknown to me my website expired on Sept 17, 2012 and was completely shut down on Oct 17th, 2012.
After some research I found that my site was in redemption. I quickly paid the $155 and my site was back online within 2 1/2 days. (total time down was probably 4 days).
I quickly checked my ranking on google and noticed that my #1 keyword is no longer #1 on google...I cant even find it!
It has retained page 1 on yahoo.com & bing though.
Would my site being in redemption cause any harm even though it was only down for 4 days?
When my site was down I noticed that I still retained #1 on google then after a day or so it was gone.
Sorry for the essay. Any info on this would be great!
