    Hi guys,

    Add it to Google Webmaster Tools. Verify ownership.
    Then go to Search Traffic > Manual actions on the left sidebar. If there's a manual penalty on the domain, it will show up there.

    Yes, but this way he will only see the manual penalties, not the algorithmic ones. From what I can see, Google is not indexing most of the pages, and the pages that are indexed do not have the metadata that they should have in the SERP. Furthermore, the content of the site is anything but unique.
    If I had to put money on it, I'd say this site has been penalized.

    Ok, I'm thinking of deleting this page and domain, in order not to keep it in the same shared hosting server as my other websites...

    Check the previous keyword ratio in Majestic, will give a fair idea of what it was and whether it was having nasty backlinks/keyword anchors which can invite trouble.

    If the content of the site isn't unique then it surely won't be listed properly. Also, if you're using blackhat techniques that could be why.

    Sorry mate, can't reply to all the queries that are not business related. I would spend 2 hours a day just doing that.
