    Fellow blackhatters, since a few hours my homepage is deindexed from serp. Website is like 2 weeks old.
    My main kw's were ranking on page 1 and 2.

    Is this a penalty or could it just be dancing around in order to get ranked?



    Note: Other pages are still listed in serp.

    Thx

    Since the other pages are there I'm thinking dance.
    I don't see anyway it could be anything else.

    Just let it be for a couple of weeks.

    Maybe your homepage is not indexed yet. Strangely, homepage seems to be indexed later than other pages on new websites.

    How can it possibly be not indexed yet after it was indexed?
    It just disapeared., my kw's were ranking for my homepage..
    According to a thread on WF it occurs often normal when a site is being ranked, let's hope they are right.

    I'm having this problem. I know its not deindexing but the homepage has disappeared completely from ranking on 1st page for my keywords, but I find other inner pages ranking for the same keyword on like page 10. WTF is going on? My site is like 3 months old and was stable on the first page, I didn't really do heavy spamming or anything.

    check your internal linking...

    Google just lifted my penalty! 2 days ago I had a tag cloud on the bottom of my site that grew very big. As it was in my footer i really didn't care that much. I deleted it and resubmited my xml. Today, I pinged my site via pingler and 4 hours later i checked and I am back better than ever!

    I have the exact same problem. My site is 6 months old and has been linked to using quality high PR links.

    in google type in:

    Code:
    site:http://www.yourdomainhere.com
    This will show you all the pages of your site that google has indexed.

    If your page is listed there, this is the google dance and you should reappear in the SERPs in a few days. You are probably on page 76 for your keyword, again, then this is the google dance.

    If it is not listed there you have been deindexed.

    Homepage was deindexed, other pages were not.
    It's back now, but not ranking at all.

    Looks like more people are having this. Could be a google penalty.

    I would have understood it if my homepage fell way back in the ranking after it was indexed again, but it's not ranking at all.
    Maybe a www. issue. I removed the www from wordpress and google webmaster tools and re-submitted the sitemap.
    I also saw that Attracta had scr*wed my robots.txt and changed the sitemap to some atracta crap..could this harm my site? Problably yes..

    How long did it take for your site to return man? Thanks for asking the question on Google forums.
