Yet if I copy some text from it and paste it into a google search the page doesnt appear in the search results.
What could be causing this, I thought if a page was indexed all the text from it would be searchable?
If the site gets indexed regularly, then there's probably no reason to expect it to arrive sooner then normal. If the site has content that rarely changes, and has been the same for a long time, there's no reason to expect it to be indexed immediately.
You have a couple options.
You can re-submit your site to the SE's. there's several sites with links to the free submission section of the major SE's.
Sign up for G webmaster tools. There's lots of information in there about your site. Including the last time it was indexed and any issues that it has discovered.
You can utilize G's sitemap feature also, which may decrease the time it takes to get re-indexed. If this is the SE that your currently watching.
they will be around.....eventually....
Watch your logs, see when googlebot requests pages. you'll get a good idea of whats going on if you spend some time with your nose in the log files.
Does that help some?
Google's cache of the page is up-to-date with the text I was searching for and the graph shows Googlebot activity in the last 90 days.
So I would of thought google has what it needed but maybe it is only showing the 'duplicate' data on the .eu site, and my webpage isnt showing because of this?
