Yesterday I saw a problem in Google Webmaster Tools - it's saying that "Googlebot can not crawl your site because of DNS errors."

Please view this image & error date: https://i.sstatic.net/4auP1.png

Then I immediately fixed the problems. Now I can see in the graph from two days there is not a DNS problem, but it's still showing a DNS error.

I am wondering how many days does it take Google to to refresh this DNS graph in order to remove the error?

They crawl when they get around to the Domain, I've seen it anywhere from 2 days to 1 week.

You can use an XML sitemap to give a hint about how often it should be crawled, but it's only a hint not a command, and requesting specific days is not possible.

You might even be recrawled now as you're reading this, it's best to wait a while, but it does get back. I had a DNS error with my setup and it took 4 days for them to get back with set to always. (I think that's why it took so long because they can't crawl it every second and store it)

If they don't crawl for a long period (e.g. a month) I suggest posting a bug report, I've seen people talking about GoogleBot not crawling for over a month, when it should have been crawled.

  • @yeah i am waiting for it. it became 4 days. But still the same error
