Index Page Fetched Every Day But Not Showing in Google

Google is visiting my site almost every day but not crawling the site. My index page is the only thing showing in google that is current. All other pages appear to have been last indexed 04/22/05. I have searched for every possible reason and cannot come up with any ideas.

Before 04/22/05 Google was all over this site almost daily. I am seeking some advice. What could have happened or could I have done something to cause this.

I am fairly new to all this and learning more everyday but can't figure this one out so I come seeking expert advice. I don't know what info you may need to assist with this, so please ask away.

Hello CreditMaster and welcome to WebmasterWorld.

I would look at what changes to the site you made close to that time.
Then validate the code and the css to see if that might be the problem.
Run the site through a spider sim [searchengineworld.com] to see if there are any problems.

The cache is only a month old.
googlebot uses IF_MODIFED_SINCE
It askes the server if the page has beeen updated since the date it has cached and if not (code 304) then it won't crawl the page.
Once your site is cached then it will only re-cache the pages that have been modified.
This saves bandwidth.
