    Hey guys, so I have a weird problem that has just recently happened. I finally have decided to quit just reading the forums and start actually doing stuff.

    I started with a site that has an EMD (I know google doesn't care about this anymore, but figured it'd be a good domain).

    I've been doing SEO for a few weeks and have hit the top of page 3 for my homepage. Today I go to check to see where my site is and now I can't find it! The homepage is no longer listed it looks like, but 3 of my posts are now at the top of page 3.

    I've check some of the SERP checkers to see where my homepage is coming in and they say result 20, but when I do a search it's not there.

    Any ideas?

    If you're worried about your homepage not indexing, then check your site in Google like this:

    site:YourURLHere.com

    It'll show the indexed pages of your website.

    Otherwise, if you're just unsure where your homepage is ranked in Google, get an accurate rank tracker, something like SerpBuddy or SerpWoo will be accurate, both of them got a sales thread in the marketplace I think, and probably got trials too, you should use one of them to get accurate ranking.

    It may have just lost its rankings and got buried deeper. Do a site search and report back to confirm whether or not your homepage is actually indexed.

    In addition to using the site operator, it's likely you see individual pages due to personalization.

    Also, if the home page doesn't index, it is usually because there isn't enough content for Google to index or there is a technical issue like bad canonical or robots or something like that.

    you can change which day's indexing date you see, this means, maybe your homepage is still indexing, but you change the wrong indexing date, I have made same mistake b4, just check it.
