Can Inner Page Be Banned By Google?
Google Banned Inner Page

I have a 3 years old website. Around 1 months back i created a new innerpage for a specific topic. This page was indexed there were results for some broad (not specific) keywords. This page showed not PR as its quite new but it has been indexed very regularly (say every 3 to 4 days)

Today morning i checked to see if the page has been index agian or not and saw that there is no cache shown but it was there in the google results when i typed in the whole url in the search box (www.abc.com/xyz.php). After 3 hours when i rechecked, i was surprised to see that it was now not in google index.

Does it mean that my this page is banned? Can a specific page be banned by google while the main domain and other pages are still active. What do you'll suggest?

Its too soon for that page to settle down in the SERPs. It will be in flux for a while before it takes position, if it does.

Most likely not. :)

Can a specific page be banned by google while the main domain and other pages are still active.

From what I've seen and read, yes, individual pages and/or sections of sites can be devalued. But, I don't think that is what you are facing. The page is only one month old. You're going to see it come in and out of the index while it goes "through the system".

Thanks for your comments. You response gave me relief.

You mean that total disappearance of a new webpage from the google index is a common happening during the inital phase. Whats the expected return time?

Can you tell me with your personlal experience does the return of this disappeared page back in index later bring better placement or can it become worse. Before the page went off the index, i was ranked on the 8th and 10th page for a few of my keywords.

Should i make any changes to the webpage content or should i wait and see the results as and when its back in the index.

That has been my (and others) experience.

Whats the expected return time?

Too many factors to really give any definitive timeframe. I think a lot of it has to do with the PageRank of your site, spidering frequency, etc. I've seen new pages get indexed and take hold in 72 hours. And then I've seen them take 30, 45, sometimes 60 days. Keep in mind, this is for an established site, not a newly launched site.

Can you tell me with your personal experience does the return of this disappeared page back in index later bring better placement or can it become worse.

Another "hard to predict" scenario. It could go either way. But, based on my experience, you probably got a "snapshot" of what to expect when those pages become seated. You could also start watching the datacenters and get a better feel for how your site is doing.

Should i make any changes to the webpage content or should i wait and see the results as and when its back in the index.

Its "wait and see" mode at this point. Too many Webmasters make knee-jerk reactions to SERP changes when in fact, they should just be leaving things alone for a bit to let things settle. Keep in mind, that each time you make changes, those changes have to propagate. If you keep making "major changes" based on what you are seeing in the SERPs (in short periods of time), you add propagation on top of propagation. You'll always be one or two steps behind the eight-ball.
