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.
Homepage cached yesterday. Is an old site,plenty of quality links.No paid links. I know about 350 penalty, seems to look like that..
Searching on Google:
site:www.example.com shows results with my internal pages (categories), but homepage is on 20 place
example.com shows my homepage in 1 result with sitelinks
my brand name shows my homepage in 1 result with sitelinks
I do not see the benefit of this update in results, just filtered old established sites.
