Am I banned from Google? How do you tell?

Hopefully, some of you experts might have some insight for me. Thanks in advance for your time.

I have an informational website, doesn't sell anything at all. I had it for about a year, and it was indexed very well because I kept updating it. Then, I handed it over to my friend to take care of because I lost interest. He abused adsense and his account got banned. So, I take it back and I put my adsense account back on and everything works fine. But, when I check where I am ranked in google, it doesn't find anything unless I just write the website name w/o the www and .com.

www.widgets.com - 0 results, website shows but no description

widgets.com - 0 results, same as above, shows link but no description

widgets - 3410 results

Widgets is a unique name and I am the only one that has it.

I'm in the top 5 for yahoo and top 5 for msn for this keyword but I don't know whats going on with Google. I know I can double my traffic if only google would index me like yahoo and msn.

And, the googlebot crawls my site everyday because I always add new content everyday. Anyone know if this might have any relation to it being banned on the search engines because of my friend? Should I email Google and possibly ask them to reindex and show proof that I am the original owner and not the one w/ the banned Adsense?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
