We have an issue thats driving us crazy, we made an upgrade to our homepage in December that wasn't rock solid, in some cases it returned a 500 error, while we were quick to fix it it would appear we weren't quick enough. Our traffic dropped 90% and it appeared Google removed the broken page from the index.
This had happened to us before, and it took 7 days (looking at the logs) for it to bounce back. This time we haven't been so lucky and its been over 2 weeks now.
Does anyone have any experience with this? I guess the problem for us is just the unknown, we have no idea what the hell is going on. It might come back on in 5 minutes, or in a month.
(We have submitted it to the index, and Google can now successfully fetch the page via GWT)
Any insight or pearls of wisdom anyone can offer?
Thanks in advance for any help
