You will probably not get listed in search engines for some time to come (a
month in Google?), or be listed only low down in the ranks. Search engines
must prioritise. As long as search engines can come back and crawl your
site, you should be fine. Having said that, if your site is not crawled
very often, its downtime may have been 'missed', which is a good thing.
