Has Google banned my site?

3 months and not indexed, despite many backlinks

Hi,

It's been a long time since I posted anything at WW...

I have a site, a games forum, which I am advertising heavily with adwords at the moment. But, I'd rather not be relying 100% on PPC for traffic because that is very costly.

However, it's been 3 months and Google has still not indexed the site, despite many backlinks. I'm confused. I think it is possible that it may be due to forwarding various other relevant domains to the site, (originally without using a 301 redirect).

I fixed this situation about two months ago, but the site has still not appeared.

Is GoogleGuy still around and able to check sites for potential bans? Since Google's natural listings provide them with the coverage they need to distribute their advertising network, I really feel there should be some better customer service at G for natural search these days.

Anyone with similar experiences and/or solutions I'd be glad to hear them...

Cheers
J
