The domain name was ideal for us on this site and we did pay for it. Namely we caught keyword.com through clubdrop and at a price.
Since that time (about 4 months ago now), we've developed the domain heavily. We have many inbound links from many quality sites & are also dmoz listed. To date we're doing quite well in the SERPs for inktomi, but even our homepage is still not being indexed by google.
Does anyone have any advice? In the first case we emailed email@example.com and did get a reply. Unfortunately it was something to the effect that "We have passed the information onto our engineers who may or may not fix the problem, sorry we cannot comment beyond that". This was about 2 months ago on a 8 month old non-indexed domain that is a similar situation.
Hello Christopher_C. FWIT, as an experiment, I let the domain for my personal site expire, re-registered, and did a site redesign. It took nearly a year to be fully listed and ranked again.
If your site doesn't use any spammy tactics, I don't think you will have any long-term problems.

Like you said even gaining new links from top authorities dmoz, Y! etc will not help.
This is (as far as I'm concerned) a problem at Google's end, but then I feel the solution fixes more problems than it causes so I don't expect perfect solution for you anytime soon.
