It sounds like a penalty, but it may be a glitch. If they were banned, they would not even be in the index.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, justamom!

It could be a penalty, or it could be a temporary glitch. Does the site employ any dicey techniques as far as linkage, hidden text, etc.?

I don't think it does, the person who owns it is my mentor (i'm really new to this) and does everything honestly. Its a work from home site. Her other site still has a pr6. I hope its just a glitch.....

Sometimes honest sites unwittingly link to penalized sites. While other sites linking to you usually has no effect, if you link to many penalized sites that can be a problem. The consensus seems to be that if you have many links and a few of them go PR0 you probably won't be hurt; if you have few links, though, and a significant percentage go bad that might be a problem.
