I changed all links to www.example.org but google still lists the index.html page if I search site using repeat the search with the omitted results included - perhaps it needs more time.
As far as I can tell site not being penalised
I've used this page to demonstrate a technical solution to a question on another forum I frequent...nothing to do with my site, hence it's orphan.
One backlink, according to Google, coming from that forum page. Weird though, the PR of this page still benefit from my site even though there's no link to it and much higher than the PR of the external page linking to it.

sorry this is impossible, the pr you are seeing is not the real pr of the page, probably just a toolbar estimate.
orphan page ... just to clear this up, as has been mentioned twice already in this thread, an orphan page is a page with no inbound links (hence the orphan metaphor) it does not matter if the links are internal or external. also if the orphan page has outgoing links it is still an orphan page
If your definition is correct then how the heck can Google see a page if it is not link from anywhere?
And to toolbar guessing the PR maybe so and maybe not. How would you know that it is guessing?
As I type this response the toolbar is showing PR0. If the toolbar have guessed then is it not that there should be some sort of guesstimate to the PR of the page where I am now, basing on the webmasterworld index PR? Even just PR1?
A site was created a few days ago...1 page...no inbound link internal or external, no outbound link either.
It's already in the Google index with fresh cache, with PR and already doing well in some non-competitive keywords.
Care to explain how did that happen? :)
