Any strange goings on over the last few months?

I have a site that has not been indexed by 3 engines.

A site I had up & running back in January/Feb is still not showing in Googs, fast, alta etc. The linkages from 2 other sites are showing to this "new" site(ie in a url search).

I expected(?) to at least be showing in Google way back when as anything linked off my portfolio page is sucked into the index in no time.

Is there anything that an ISP may have done to stop a site being spidered? (although the sim spider test went well in the SE tools)

Do you have access to your root directory? Do you have a robots.txt file in place? If you do have a robots.txt file, did you validate it?

I'm sure there are things an ISP can do to prevent spidering, but I see no reason why they would do this. Unless of course you ended up on someone's hit list. ;)

Your site may have been penalized....or yet to be indexed.
