Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I've only recently discovered this huge forum, so much information to find here. I'm currently having a 'problem' and I'd like your opinion about it.
It is about my website/bog, that at this moment, is not yet indexed by Google. I've tried the site:... search and no results come up. The domain is registered on 21/04/07, so it's not that old yet, and I don't have many inbound links at the moment. It's a standard WP installation with not many alterations (some theme altering...)
Could these be the reasons why it isn't indexed yet?
And you want to know something really weird, I was browsing the webmaster tools thingy from Google, and in the Statistics/Page analysis section, I found < a list of adult keywords that are supposed to relate to my site >
The list goes on and on. All words related to that matter. What is going on?
My site in question is just a personal blog about me and my business running on a default Wordpress installation. (my own server)
Does anyone have a clue here? I'm lost?

You will want to develop the website and then submit a reinclusion request to Google from webmaster tools explaining in detail that you purchased the domain, plan on improving it and are not associated in any way with the previous owners. I have found success in this type of reinclusion before, *usually* within 3 weeks.
This whole scenario to me, is astounding. If this is all accurate...then Stefan did NOT find incoming links depicting adult material, Google used very old information from their data banks to assess his current site and ignored the change of content. Did not use his current site map. Did not use their own spidering.
Google pushed their own outdated keywords into his assessment in webmaster tools. Google did not even take into account the whois registration(assuming Stefan didn't use private).
I don't know about the rest of you but I am flabbergasted by this whole scenario. I really think this is a case study.
