Is googlebot showing in the logs?
have you checked
was the homepage another page before the redesign?
google hasn't updated pagerank in a few months has it, it may be that it just hasn't been calculated yet?
They say that toolbar pr and real pr are different don't they? is the domain still getting visits?

Thanks for your reply Grail.
The domain and the home page are all fine and available via the browser.
As far as I know, the home page was always 'index.asp', so I don't think the index was ever a different suffix or format.
Good point on the logs - I have a look and also to check the robots.txt.
The main mystery are the number and quality of inbound links. They are the sort of quantity/quality that most sites would give their right arm for, yet this site has them and they are nowhere in Google - either SERPS or Pagerank...
"google hasn't updated pagerank in a few months has it, it may be that it just hasn't been calculated yet?"
Has anyone else noticed that the PR displayed in Googles directory seems to be different to what is displayed on the toolbar?
Yeah, I noticed that. One of my sites is PR3 on the toolbar but PR1 on the directory.
I've also noticed that for most sites the PR ranking shown in Google's directory is lower than what is show on the toolbar. Could it be that Google's directory more up to date, and an indication of what your PR will be?

Thats what I'm afraid of. :/
Hmmm looks like there are two of these threads going and I posted [webmasterworld.com] in the other one everyone's ignoring.
Consider this my thread hop to this one.
What is the backlink status in yahoo? Y's backlink check is less filtered and will give you a better point of reference. If all your backlinks in G are from very good sources G might be filtering them purposefully from view. Just some theories that have been floated around here. Regardless, Y is a truer picture of your backlinks.
Also, is your domain.co.uk redirecting to you your www.domain.co.uk? If not you might be having some issues with PR dispersement between the two domains (assuming both are the same content).
Thanks for the advice MoneyMan - presumably Yahoo backlinks are a feature of the Yahoo toolbar?
The domain itself it actually www.domain.co.uk - no redirects at all.
|presumably Yahoo backlinks are a feature of the Yahoo toolbar |
I don't know about that but if you use Yahoo Search, use the command: linkdomain:www.domain.co.uk
and you will see your Y backlinks.
|The domain itself it actually www.domain.co.uk - no redirects at all. |
What happens when you type domain.co.uk?
how about www.example.co.uk/index.asp
google says: your redirect is : [sedo.co.uk...]
I wrote an URL for thinking real (domain.co... and sedo...)
I'm new in here and I do not realize this is'nt accepted.
