How do you know your server is banned?
Site not indexed although clean and well-linked

AlltheWeb shows 200+ links for my site, which is free of any spammy technique, but the site is not indexed.

I asked Fast what was wrong, I got the reply that for some reason the site was not in their index but that they had corrected it. It has since been crawled rather extensively several weeks ago, but still did not make it to the index.

I start to wonder if the server that hosts my site has been blacklisted because of some bad neighbor on the same server. How could I check that?

Thanks,

J-F

Try samspade.org - lots of useful tools and alltheweb's ip search will tell you who you are sharing an ip with.

Thanks for the reply.

Alltheweb IP filter shows only one site on the server (not mine), a "make money while sleeping" kind of thing. But if the server is somehow banned, I guess very few if any domains should appear anyway?

Ulkari, welcome to WebmasterWorld :)

We've had a bunch of reports that Fast has not indexed sites even though they we quite a few inbound links. We also had reports that on some sites, the index page never made into the index. On other sites only the inxed page made it in.

So far we haven't had a definetive answer on those issues, but have a look at:

Thanks Rumbas.

I emailed ATW about the issue but got no response. What I would like to be sure about, is that the problem is not with the site itself... I'm having troubles with Google as well since I moved the site to a new domain 6-7 months ago.

Hmm, sounds like a problem at your end then?

Have you tried:

Sim Spider:
[searchengineworld.com...]

The robots-txt checker:
[searchengineworld.com...]

Server Header Checker:
[searchengineworld.com...]

Yes, I've tried those, and checked everything I could figure, but I don't see what could be wrong with my site.

I'd be glad to sticky-mail the URL if you want to have a look ;-)
