Hi everyone - It appears that Google is no longer indexing any portion of my site in its non-supps. I've tried backlinks to each page, analyzing and creating the proper meta tags, title and other aspects but still no go.
A couple months ago I filed a claim with Google because of an authorized image of mine was being used at their blogging service. I didn't want money, just for the image to be taken down. Would this have anything to do with it? I;m not joking when I say tha tGoogle is killing my site. I've got 60 pages in the non-supps and 40 images in the non-supps. With Bing, recent uploaded content has reached top ten for the search terms and I have 300 pages in the non-supps and 120 images in their image search. They even featured an image of mine on their main image search page around the world.
I have no idea what is going on with Google and would like to figure this out. I would be willing to pay anyone $$$$ for some advice. Thanks for reading. BTW, here is my robots.txt and .htaccess if these fortell any problems:

The code looks OK to me.
Check out your server responses while spoofing googlebot using a "user-agent switcher" and a server headers checker such as "Live HTTP Headers" or Firebug. Review your on-page HTML robots meta-tags. Do a search for your unique content and see if any other sites are 302-redirecting to your content or proxying it (thus misrepresenting it as belonging to them). Examine your out-going links to make sure they all work (e.g using Xenu Link Sleuth), and that you are truly comfortable with the knowledge that each of them is a "recommendation by you" of relevant, useful, and top-quality information/resources for your targeted visitors.
The problem with this situation is that "it could be anything." Start with the basics, and do an honest top-to-bottom review of your site's functional operation, content, and linking environment.
