Hi All,

When I am checking index pages of my website through query site:mydoamin.com on Google then I am not seeing my site’s home page in index pages list/results. When I do search www.mydomain.com and info:mydoamin.ocm then I can see my home page. What can be the possible for this.

There is no change in rankings for home page. There is no “no index, no follow” meta tag on home page. The home page still cached in Google.

Is it redirecting somewhere? Sometimes home pages redirect to an internal URL.
If it is not redirecting, it could be a bug in Google's "site:" query, especially as you say there is no change in ranking.
BTW - I assume there is no change in traffic either?

Hi Sett, may I ask what CMS you use?

This has happened to one of our clients websites on the Magento platform. I am currently trying to figure out what is causing it.

There is no redirect on home page and no change in traffic. I am not using any CMS.

Is there duplicate content on the index page and another page? Duplicate titles?

Do you have a sitemap.xml?

Is the indexed page count correct in Google Search Console? If not I would resubmit your sitemap.xml to get Google to recrawl and add the pages back to the index.

Pages do get dropped then added back as the index gets refreshed periodically. Your missing page may reappear in a few days.

Google tries to go straight to the page that has the most appropriate content for the enquiry.

Some searches take visitors to my home page and some to inner pages. I don't worry about it, the object is to convert those visitors to sales not to have them admire a few extra examples of my web design.

Google drop homepages often as a prerequisite of a penalty, often this is due to inbound links to homepage
