|Site Not Banned, But Home URL Not Indexed By Google|
| 10:32 am on Dec 25, 2005 (gmt 0)|
I recently found out that my home URL was no longer indexed by Google when I type www.mydomain.com in Google's search box. It returned "sorry, no info..."
Needless to say, I got very worried! To further verify, I use the "site:mydomain.com" to check. And thank goodness, all previously cached page are still there, including my home cached page positioned at the first.
What exactly does this mean? What went wrong? Can someone please kindly advise...

search "yourdomain.com" from google. If you website is not ranking #1 then your website has been banned.

It could have been resulted with removal with URL Console, but you've found your home page with site: command. Check if the URL was www or non-www in its listing. And if this is the case, that 'yourdomain.com' is indexed and 'www.yourdomain.com' isn't, please reder to previous threads about www and non-www problem in Google. It would appear that everything's in order with your site, but anyway it's recommended to have 301 redirect between different URL versions for further safety.

Happy holiday and thanks for the feedback.
I use the mydomain.com with no luck.
Honest, I do not engage in unethical seo techniques. But I am doing some major overhaul to my site for seo purposes.
1 Due to dynamic driven e-commerce, what I'm doing right now currently is rewriting the shopping catalogue section of the url structures to make it "search engine friendly." (you know how dynamic url string has garbage)
2 will duplicate content be the cause? because I am using static pages with "htm" extension to replace all previous dynamic driven info pages. And I have not deactivated the old dynamic pages, just hid them.
3 Yes, I do join link exchange programs, such as Link2me.com, etc. But I do NOT expand my links so quickly overnight. I take my time to verify good sites to exchange linkes with. I also check if a link exchange site has PR. If they have decent (PR 4 +), I think Google has no problem with them? Am I wrong? If Google penalizes people for using so called link farms, how come other link members are not affected?
4 Lastly, banned means all my site's pages and records should be gone right? But site commands works. What gives? Also, what is a removal of url consol?
