More specifically, the site that this is happening to has had a ranking penalty in the past, about 2 years ago. The penalty was a cross linking penalty [2 related websites / same server]. Shortly after that, the site died, and the domain was parked at Sedo for a long time. Now about 2 months ago, I brought the site back to life, and turned it into an informational website [used to be ecommerce]. It has a lot of quality backlinks, and Google just indexed about 10% of the pages, although the index page shows up last using the aforementioned command "site:www.example.com", and the other newly indexed pages are all "supplemental".
Is there any chance a ranking penalty could still apply to the domain, even though all cross linking issues were cleared up years ago?
