We also had the home page dropped for one of our sites. I have no idea why it happened. It seems like other people have posted some ideas, but nothing definite. So I am just going to post some things which are different on this site (compared to other sites we own). It may be one of these factors, although it may have nothing to do with any of them. (I canít justify why any of these reasons would lead to a penalty, but maybe some of you that had an indexing issue/ penalty will see something similar.)
- Possible duplicate content on some internal pages (but none of these pages have dropped from the index, only the main page and it has 100% unique content).
- Home page is the only page getting linked to (none of the internal pages have links going to them).
- It has received a higher rate of gaining links than was normal previously (the site has been up for 4 years). It would gain about 1 link per month in the past. This past month, it got about 8.
