Effect on Google rankings if my site is down?
I'm using hostgator shared hosting for some of my sites and uptime reported by mo.ni.tor.us is in between 97% to 94%. Is it a tolerable range for downtime ? Also i would like to know how much downtime percentage is considered as okay in case of SEO ? I see that most updated blogs needs to have more uptime. But not sure how much downtime factor is considered in case of SEO ?
