Our site has been ranking well for over a year now in MSN SERPs but suddenly two week back we lost traffic from our home page on checking found homepage is missing from MSN SERPs. Homepage is indexed but not coming up in MSN SERPs as before for certain keywords.
Appears as though we have some sort of penalty on the homepage only. Anyone else seeing this?

Check to see if http://www.example.com/index.html (or whatever the filename for the root index page might be, is indexed. That can happen even without one link to the page like that and can cause the www.example.com/ to disappear.

Thanks Marcia for your reply.
Yes the http://www.example.com/ and index.html both are indexed in MSN but not coming in MSN search results for same keywords which were on 1st page two week earlier. Inner pages are still on same positions (on 1st page) as before we changed nothing in our home page but still we lost it on MSN.
When we search with our domain name 'example' our other sites 'example.us, example.net, example.info, example.org' all are coming in MSN SERPs but the 'example.com' not coming up only the inner pages are coming in MSN SERPs.
