Is my site penalized by Google or not?

Okay, I am totally puzzled:

I have a small site that I thought had some sort of penalization/ 302 redirect problem (in fact, the 302 problem was verified by an outside source). Whenever I searched Google for www.mysite.com, I was getting the dreaded "Sorry, no information is available for the URL www.mysite.com." And up until today, the site was virtually absent from Google since Bourbon began.

Well, I am still getting "Sorry, no information is available for the URL www.mysite.com" but the site is back in the Google SERPs! It's even getting a couple of AOL searches. And these aren't supplemental results, either - they're good, solid page 1 or 2 rankings. So what gives? Google on one hand seems to think the site doesn't exist, and on the other hand it's showing up in searches. I'm very confused. Glad to see it back in the SERPs, but confused.

(Yes, I did send in a reinclusion request a few days ago, but wouldn't Google start acknowledging the existence of the site when I did a search on its domain?)

Very strange situation -- probably a temporary back end lack of coordination at Google. At least you're headed in a good direction!

They don't act quickly on reinclusion and you'll only know it's happened once it starts happening but it might take months. I went to them very heavy handedly and it still took 4 months from the start of seeing movement til everything was aok again.
