Can your homepage be deindexed but not the subpages?

    I recently deleted my wordpress installation on my money page a few days ago in favor of just a single index.html money page that I wanted to try out. However when I do, site:url.com, my main url is gone but the previous subpages from the wordpress installation are still there. I haven't done any heavy backlinking except about 200+ social bookmarks and AMR drip feeding articles so there's no reason that it should've been deindexed. Is google just reindexing my new page or should I be worried? Domain is about few weeks old.

    Have you done forwards of all your old urls? If not take a list of all the urls that google has indexed and forward them all to your index page.

    Probably just a matter of not indexing your page yet. I have never heard of them de-indexing just the index page of a site. Not ranking it yes, not indexing it no.

    Well I don't have access to those pages since the wordpress installation was deleted.

    How would I forward them now?

    You can grab the old URLs off of google then make static html pages to forward.

    dont make pages for all of them youll go nuts ... just go lge up howto do a .htaccess redirect for any 404 -> homepage since nothigns in all those old pages any attempt will then route to your index/home.html
