One of my sites was in the DMOZ and Google directories before I made an address change. DMOZ updated the address change upon my request, and the site appears with correct information on DMOZ directory. But in the last udate, Google excluded my site with the new address (the old address isn't there either). Only one site is missing from the G directory compared to DMOZ in my category, and that is my site. Does this mean that my site has been penalized for something I did wrong during the address change?

My site was never out of DMOZ for the last 5-6 months, and I am the first person using the new domain. Before I moved the site completely to www.newdomain.com, I was using a DNS forwarding to my site from www.newdomain.com. I wonder if this may have caused the problem.

Was your listing updated in mid-February? I wonder if the change was being made at the very moment that the software was running to create the RDF dump that Google picks up. If there was some technical hitch that caused the listing not to go into the dump, then not to worry. It should be just a matter of time before Google updates again and picks up the new listing.
