Let's make sure of this: You search for site:example.com and the first page listed is not www.example.com but www.example.com/other-page.html ? Do you rank for your 'example' (domain keyword) ? Do you have a fresh cache?
Long time ago there was a penalty, link related, where the first page would be demoted and by extension everything else too.
Walkman , the same happened to me :
- when I search for site:www.domainname.com , www.domainname.com is on 5th place ( cache date is 26th Feb )
- the first 4 places are other pages www.domainname.com/a-page.html ( cache 23rd, 24th, 26th Feb )
- I rank for domainname.com or www.domainname.com
- some of my keywords went from first page ( pos 3-4 ) to 3rd page ( pos 23-29 )
Do you think it is a link related penalty ? I never bought/sold links
