    Do they show up on any page for domain.com or not?

    Just to clarify, site:domain.com contains a few results?

    Next question is does the homepage show up in site:domain.com?

    If it does show up, then it suggests that it is penalised, if it doesn't, it just means it isn't indexed, which can happen if the domain has become offline, the inner pages may not have been re-crawled, and are therefore still indexed.

    Thanks man! That is so logic but somebody has to tell you first.

    The homepage does not show up when searching site:domain.com. So it is probably deindexed and just the innerpages which are not recrawled yet show up.

    Next question: Is it a big problem when the home site is not indexed anymore? I mean, when inner sites are still indexed it should be quite easy to get home reindexed, right?

    Of couse assuming that there is no penalty.

    Check when it was dropped, but in theory it should be perfectly fine.
