Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
I have a site with following characteristic
But when I do site:widgets.com it says "did not match any documents". If I pick up any long sentence in quotes and search in Google, it doesnít give any results. I checked the results in many different data centers but doesnít show up in any.
Can anyone figure out what can be the problem in this case. Has anyone had similar problem before?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Grasping at straws here... Instead of long sentences, try some three, four, or five word phrases in quotes, phrases on your page that are likely to be unique.
Also, grasping at straws... you might want to check your inlinks (from other domains) on Yahoo's Site Explorer. Then use Google to look for the pages that Yahoo shows linking to you, just to make sure they're still there.
Do you use several subdomains on the site(including www.domain.com and domain.com)? If so, which subdomain are you using when doing the site: search?
Do you use google webmaster tools/sitemap? Perhaps you can get some hints from there...
Did you get a very high TBPR page to link to your site when you first launched it, or did some one with high tbpr initially link to you?
The above would account for the visible TBPR of 3
The very high ranking link or links may have been withdrawn by the 3rd party,
because TBPR is often as much as 6 months behind googles internal PR computations, TBPR 3 might mean nothing, you might actually be PR0 right now
If your site has very few links, and is in a niche not in high demand, it could be de indexed at any time by google
Plus there a lot of other reasons why google might decide not to index a site, read thru this fantastic forum for more tips
Even if all incoming links to the site were removed, at least the index page should still be in google index, unless the site had an accessibility problem for a long period (beside removing the incoming links) which is unlikely.
IMO, it's an obvious ban.
As far as the backlinks are concerned the site has 9 in google, 206 in yahoo, infact in DMOZ too.
centimeMy site is index and in Cache. Google visits it every now and then
moftaryAll the links are there. It can be banned, but has never been listed any time.
By the way I am SEO by Profession and have been doing SEO since last 5 years. I did have some client in the pharmacy biz, where I had the problem of site getting banned. So I know what it shows when the site gets banned. This is the first time I am clueless to the problem, any help is surely appreciated
Yes the my problem itself is site:www.mydomainname.com doesnt show any thing but the cache:www.mydomainname.com does show my site.
Googlebot crawling your site means absolutely nothing, they look at everything and probably discard most of what they get from the spiders and bots
What is actually indexed an cached is what they've selected as being listable
TBPR also means very little except that its a snapshot of googles measurement of your pages link popularity at one point in time.
Once that point in time is gone, TBPR is really only something to pay attention to over very long timescales where quaterly figures are useful
Tell you what, go create a google webmasters account if you don't already have one, tis very useful for webmasters
moftary - I don't get how come you say that site: yourdomain.com shows no results and yet say that your site is indexed?
The activity of googlebots on your site means nothing, and your pages being cached means nothing as well.
Does that mean that if site:mydomain.com doesnt show any results its either banned or not indexed, no matter we have the googlebot entry or our site shows in Cache?
Frankly speaking I didnt knew this. I assumed that if my site is in google cache it has to be craled and then indexed.
Thanks I learned something new!
