    Question for other BHers.

    I have a domain, with 100 referring domains, solid white hat link profile. All legit and 98% do-follow. It's not indexed yet after doing lots of link building, social signals, etc. So I'm starting to wonder after waiting a month.

    I have indexed TONS of domains in the past but this one is kind of weird.

    So I have it in Google WMT for another IP/account, and there are no errors.

    I want to hear about your experiences. Have you ever added a penalized domain to WMT and not seen errors or messages in the panel?

    You put it into a fresh WMT account and it would not index?

    I have had a domain or two like that. Unique content, no penalty in WMT, submit domain to google URL submitter, built 'quality' links to it, a butt load of social signals, social book marks, Web 2.0s, and eventually spam after waiting over a month and nothing.

    I considered it a fluke and gave up trying as it was not worth my time.

    Domain looked clean and had no penalties in WMT.

    So to answer your question, yes, I hate google sometimes.

    the domain must experience a penalty in the past, sometimes google webmaster tools is not reliable.
    if after a month still no index thats is something not normal, its completely deindexed and google bot ignore it.

    and silly guide double check your site, sometimes theres a noindex on the page or disallowed in the robot, also check the robot.txt at google WMT,

    and 98% do follow is kinda suspicious and unnatural

    or maybe the mythical thing called Sandbox caught you

    I read somewhere that only manual penalties are shown in GWT, I don't know if that is true or not.
