After nearly 4 months my site still isn't indexed

 2:51 am on Feb 28, 2007 (gmt 0)

I'm trying to figure out what is going on here. Most sites that I've built are indexed within a week or two of going online. I've had < this site > online since the beginning of November. Google regularly crawls the site. It seems to have a pagerank of 6 on the homepage. It is not banned as far as I can tell. Is there any reason why this site still isn't indexed with Google?

I never had that kind of situation but how about trying &filter=0 in the resulted url of site:search.

Are you able to see backlinks in Google?

Was Google showing OMITTED RESULTS in site:search?

Maybe increasing backlinks through niche and top directories..

Are you getting your site when searched through top keywords of the site.

What about freshness of the site, freshness of the backlinks

Any other ideas...

Adding to the above,

Do you mean to ask why all pages still didn get indexed or was it that no page was indexed or did i get you right?

Is your site a previously owned domain?

Based on my research there could be an 'expired domain penalty' which could last anywhere from 6 to 12 months.

I'm having the same problem with the domain I'm currently working on. If after 12 months, I'm still not indexed, well I think I may be screwed.

First thing... Look thru your entire site (especailly the home page) and look for a "NO INDEX" "NO FOLLOW" tag. I had a developer leave this on the home page when we moved form dev to prod, this almost wiped us out for over 9 months.

If this happened, it will take months to get the pages back.
Google will treat any pages previously deleted from the index using a no index tag as new PR0 pages.

On a second note....
Our site has been up for 8 years and has a PR6. Alexa rating of 12602... We had all 120k pages fully indexed. We decided to rebuild our site in November 2006, keeping all URL's and 301's for any changes. The changes included link structure and layout changes.

Site still has only 9k of the 120k pages indexed after 3 months. Google will index up to 15k and then appears to do a rollback to 6k. this has happened now 8 times. I have absolutely no doubt Google really broke someting and they are scrambling to fix it.

Good Luck!

More info, please...

Is this blog on an established site or a "free-bee" at blogspot?

What kind of links did you add pointing to it? High PR links?

A friend of mine started a new blog at blogspot and we added a couple of links pointing to it from very related type sites BUT it has been 3 weeks now and a site:search shows it still to be non-existant.

What does it take these days to get Google to at least index (forget traffic or placement in serps) a new site?

it's a blogspot blog, it has 2-3 social network links (not from main page or text ads or smt, just as personal fav.), 1 blog (this one indexed in 2 days) link which i started just 2 days before that blog.

Basicly, i didn't pay, just wrote 2 articles. Total cost = 1 hour

I have another web site for 1 year, which i am trying to put in serps (same keyword that blog has), has 1200 pages indexed, has had ranked 2 under that blog.

I don't know if i can give the name of blog service that i have pages indexed in 2 days. It's an unknown turkish blog

sorry for my english btw
