I just updated my robots.txt file on a new site; Google Webmaster Tools reports it read my robots.txt 2 days before my last update. my last robots.txt had a "disallow: all" raw.

Is there any way I can encourage Google to re-read my robots.txt as soon as possible?

for now, google isn't scanning my site. Please help me!

After that, Google should honor the new robots.txt.
