Did you use the NoArchive meta tag for Googlebot on your home page by any chance? That would tell Google not to cache that page.

Hey seo_gyan, welcome to WebmasterWorld!

Can we assume from your post that the homepage is not ranking?

Are you checking this in G, or Y Explorer?

Can you find it cached under any alternative URLs?

- domain.com/
- domain.com/index.html
- www.domain.com/
- www.domain.com/index.html

Indeed, plus I'd still like to know what you're seeing in Y Site Explorer. It's not the browser (IE); what are you seeing in the Y index?

Hmmm, a little strange that the homepage is in Y but not G.

But OK, some additional options:
- Is the site accessible with and without the "www" in the URL?,
- Is the page is too similar to another page on the site or on a different domain?
- Is the homepage is being duplicated via mishandled aff links?
- Is there an operating platform issue such that the homepage is not being handled properly, causing dup issues (especially common with ASP sites)?
- Are there any redirects involved with the homepage?
- Do you have a robots.txt file with instructions specific to Google?
- Are there technical issues that are making the homepage difficult to crawl?

I too have had this happen. The site ranked well for the phrases I cared about and then the host went offline for 6 days. When they were back online all my pages except the homepage were re-indexed in a couple weeks. Finally after 6 weeks I went to Google help for webmasters and posted my questions, a few days later a post from a Google employee saying it had been re-crawled and all was fine. I don't know if the post caused it to be re indexed but it's worth a try.

Is the page is too similar to another page on the site or on a different domain?

Yes the homepage(www.abc.net) is similar to the same theme website but with differnt domain its with (www.abc.com)

i hav redirected my .net domain on .com and on .com version i hav placed the link to homepage with .net extension.

i hope it works for me..as thru this my home page with .net ext will get crawled..
