I'm also facing this problem, sites are not indexed. Their webmaster tools are also broken, sometimes it shows sites as verified and some times as not verified.(within half an hour, I did not change anything in my websites).

Many of my sites dropped out of the index Thanksgiving week (no results) but are still showing page ranks of 2, 3, or 4.
If they are showing page ranks, the sites should not be banned, should they? I have the sites registered in Google sitemaps/webmaster tools.
Anybody know what is going on?

|since 8th of december most of my site's (but not all) removed from google index |
Hey hey hold on now, are you "sure" it is dropped? Around this time I was seeing in webmaster tools that ALL my sites were showing "site is not included in the index" but it was only a glitch.
The glitch was due to the recent modifications google has done. I saw a LOT of wierdness in this time frame and it was talked about here.
Don't panic, there may be nothing to it at all. Check it right now. ALL my sites now show they are in the index, even though the showed they were not earlier this month.
My traffic never missed a beat either, it may only be a false alarm.
Cross your fingers!

Our traffic hasn't faltered, a constant 45% from Google, but there is oddness.
One month ago, we had something like 1.2 million URL's in site:url. (as it has been for a long time)
Two weeks ago, it was 800,000+
Now it's about 420,000+
Our webmaster tools still show our site is not in the index... but...
We're still ranked well and no change in typical searches.
But as many here are saying, there is widespread strangeness.

The litmus test is your traffic - if your traffic continues unabated, and you are getting results from the same keyword set then don't worry about what the webmaster tools say - they have glitches atm.
The test to check is your traffic.

Question: Do any of you use Blogger/Blogspot to promote your sites?
I just noticed that the sites I promote thru Blogger are the ones that are no longer in the index. My sites that are not linked from Blogger posts are still intact.

PageRank is updated about four times a year (toolbar) and what it says "right now" may be no indication at all what it's "true" PR is. Only time you will see this change is when they do a PR update, then you will see threads here along the lines of "PR updating seems to have started" or something similar.
In webmaster tools one page shows the PR distribution, this seems to be more accurate then the toolbar PR but it doesn't show the PR for any given page, just an idea how it is distributed.
