Sites that are unavailable within a few days will be subject to URL de-indexing by the Google search engine. This information was provided by Google employee John Mueller. This was the answer to a question from one of the webmasters on the Twitter social network.
Muller's question was put this way: "How long does a site have to be down and unavailable to users for it to have a negative impact on rankings?"
The answer to this question was as follows: “URL de-indexing can start as early as two days after the site has stopped working. It all depends on how it happens. But, despite this, everything can be quickly turned back, if the work of the site is restored.

It should be noted that in February 2020, representatives of the Google search engine said that pages can be dropped from the index due to the server response code 429/503. All this will negatively affect the further work of the website.
As Google notes, status code 503 is designed to be used only for a few hours. It is strictly forbidden to use it for several days or weeks. All this can negatively affect the ranking.
