Hi Guys, long time no talk on the forum. It means it was doing well! :)


I have a problem. I hired a programmer to clean up my website like update files, optimize server, remove a few hacked files etc.


For a reason, he disallowed googlebot for about 3 days to do a test.  :cry2: My site (visitors and conversion) just crashed of about 10X. 


We removed it as of yesterday. 


How long should it take to be back to where it was and is there anything I can do to speed it up?

Take it as a lesson that you should never ever rely on traffic from search engine referrals.


How long will it take? That depends on how long the robots.txt is cached for by Google.


Anything you can do?? Nope, nothing at all.

It's probably back by now.
