    This is probably a really nooby question but here goes. :)

    Ive got a blog thats 2 weeks old it was ranked 4th for its keyword until yesterday when it went missing from both google and yahoo, the strange thing is it still lists my inner pages for the keyword, only my main page seems to have went missing. Any ideas whats up?

    How are you checking- Are you 100% sure your home page is not indexed?

    Do you have any re-directs set up?

    Does Google have a cached version of the home page?

    I just searched through google and its way back in the rankings at page 47. I'm 100% sure its indexed and cached. I'm not using re-directs. The thing is my inner pages are on page 8, 9 etc

    Its called the "Google Dance" It will happen for a little while, that and the sandbox effect.

    Read up on both of those so you know what to look forward to in future sites ;)

    Hope you get it all back real quick!
