Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Any ideas hwtas happened, have I messed something up.
Thanks in advance guys, Im worrying
I have checked the xml site maps and all page priorities are fine.
In all cases we see either an html site map appearing or a location page instead of the home page.
We are seeing the home being dropped from a number of sites and in the the html site map returned.
In reply to your question I not sure what you mean, the xml priorities for the html pages 1.0 for home and normally 0.8 for the html site map, we don't set anything for the xml because it's not included.
I've done some searching and things are moving around, my concern is that I am dropping further and further down the Serps. The xml sitemap link isnt showing up as much as before.
My 1 year old webite is running good, but suddenly my homepage url is not longer listed in google; My other domains are still there and I'm receiving still plenty of organic traffic.
What's going on?
Why is my homepage domain gone?
Even when I search on the name of my website, it doesn't show my homepage url...

We've got to wait it out, I guess - what else is there to do? Definitely don't start making a lot of changes trying to "fix" it right now, unless you see a technical issue for your site that needs fixing anyway.
On the other hand, our newly awarded sitelinks are not being displayed anymore, but still appear in WMT. And now top of page two for "prefix widget" where we only use "pref. widget" - dropping from #5
Time to join the Halloween party and take a fresh look in the morning.
