"UK results only" - site: command shows index page missing
A problem in Google UK (UK results only filter) affects non .co.uk domains

Except on these UK datacentres

If you do a site: search using Google UK's 'UK results only', the index pages of ten .com domains and three .net domains (out of 65 that I manage) are not listed.

1) All sites hosted in the UK across 4 different servers in 3 different DCs
2) No link exchanges, very little outward linking, no excessive inward linking. No inter-linking. These are not directories, MFA, affiliate. They are contact/services offered websites for UK companies and sole traders. Some are dynamic, some static. Size from under ten to under one hundred pages.
3) No canonical issues, no dupe content issues, no over-optimisation. I use the same techniques and links for all my sites. Number of affected sites has not grown since this problem was spotted. Unaffected sites re-cached this week.
4) Internal pages all listed AND RANKING for their terms.

Would other UK based webmasters like to share their experiences? Perhaps we can collectively contact Google and refer them to this thread.

I'm not back in yet. However, Google haven't actually gone much beyond acknowledging the problem:

We're aware of some issues with these searches,

doesn't really tell us anything we hadn't already guessed, and saying they

expect to have a fix in soon.

may well mean they haven't found a definitive solution yet (although they probably now believe they are - at last! - on the right track). If and when they do find and implement a solution, it

Might take a bit for it to propagate across all data centers

which is another way of saying we shouldn't immediately expect to see it working.

Don't hold your breath, in other words.
