This does imply a problem - either with the "value"of the homepage - i.e. not enough links to it, or the quality of the homepage - i.e. there is a content-based problem that means Google is deeming inner pages to be more relevant.
It's possible for this to occur in situations where it is not a particular worry - for example if you get a lot of external links to a particular inner page, but ordinarily I would take a look at link structure (internal and external) and make sure there was nothing on the homepage likely to demote its rankings.

I assume your home page is still showing for site:example.com - correct? How long has it been since your home page stopped showing on the "<domain name without TLD>" search?

Hi Receptional Andy,
You may be right but reality is TLD has more links compare to inner page. In my google webmaster tool in Interlink tab my home page shows 244 Inbound links, while inner pages have 140 to 150 inbound links. So how it this possible?
And if suppose the links pointing to home page are lower valued links or are not quality backlink than how come it appears on good positions previously.

I have the same problem and its been over 5 months now, the weird part is though the new Caffeine data set show my homepage ranking normally as pre disappearance. There has to be something with newly indexed website during this year.

I am also experiencing this since Nov 5th, The main page does not come up in search. The page was in the top 10 for some good search terms and now has dissapeared. In the Caffeine DC it is fine.. Not sure what is going on..
