I was searching my name on google yesterday and there was that new unfinished site--only they had only text and no graphics. So they must have done a deep crawl of my site about 2 weeks ago and picked it up. I hadn't even linked to it anywhere or listed it, of course. I did this to prevent the search engines from picking up an unfinished site (i've had this problem before). But I forgot to add the "no index, no follow" meta tag. It's on there now.

Also many of the sites when checking the Google cache are dated late March (I have a php date script displaying the server date to inform me the date of displayed cached results) Google is displaying very old data.
Logs show googlebot.com has been visiting, but still in nearly all 50 sites old data is displayed.
I think I'll go and visit the 'Is Google Broke' discussion ...
Many of the sites I maintain have had new pages in the last months all with top notch linking inside and out. Yet Google is not including any new pages or page updates in the index.
Just to add to the confusion, I have pages that I added or updated on May 7 and 12. They're in the index, without a "fresh" date, and they're in the cache, even though the deep crawler hasn't visited my server since April 26.
A page that I updated on May 26 hasn't hit the cache yet. I don't know if it's showed up with a "fresh" tag yet.
<!-- <?php echo date('j F Y, g:i a')?> -->
html with ssi enabled:
<!--#config timefmt="%e %B %Y, %I:%M %p" -->
<!-- <!--#echo var="DATE_LOCAL" --> -->
Of course it is only visible when viewing source. A quick check on google cache, then view source reveals what date-of-page my results are based on.
A few weeks ago looks it have been deleted at all from google. If I search for site:mysite.com mysite it shows 0 results. Also my pagerank has been deleted.
Can It be a mistake or should I understand Google has deleted my site. I see no reason for it... NO cross linking, hiden text, any ilegal or duplicated content ... Can be other reasons? Dou you know any article or tutorial with all possible reasons for being banned?
If is a mistake I guess I will be there soon. But can I understand I´m temporaly banned for any reason?
put it on my own domain instead of his until it's finished so it wouldn't get listed and he could still view it online...
...I did this to prevent the search engines from picking up an unfinished site (i've had this problem before).
Lorel, they crawled and got those pages because they're on your domain, which has been there for a while. The problem has been with sites that have been going up on their own domains the last few months. That isn't the same thing.
I hadn't even linked to it anywhere or listed it, of course.
Google can find pages that aren't directly linked to. You can find an explanation for that on their site if you look in their FAQ.
The safest thing is to use robots.txt to exclude an entire directory to keep bots out. The problem - eventually Google can have the same identical pages on both sites - and that isn't a good thing.
