    Just wanted to double check.

    My root domain can't be found, but my site for some of my subpages still appear indexed.

    Couldn't find it after typing: site: domain.com

    However, i didn't receive any penalty notification from Google Webmaster Tool.

    What are you standard procedures to triple check?

    Do these sub-pages rank for something? Unique title/paragraphs? If they do you are not penalized and the root domain will sure reappear soon.

    This has happened to me before, and it sorted itself out. I just kept link building and the domain popped up eventually. No worries!

    Could just be your domain hasn't been indexed yet, but the page was. This has happened to me, especially when my domain is an EMD of a high competition keyword and my posts' URLs/keywords have much less competition.

    It could be a dance because your site's been receiving traffic and it's adjusting PR.

    I've had a site I was testing link building on (only forum profile links via xrumer in INTENSE volume, never did this before) get completely and utterly removed from index, all traces of it. If you've still got pages up, relax, especially considering as these days the individual pages matter more than the entire site.

    Usually happens on small websites.
    There is some sort of penalty but not permanent yet.
    Build links very careful... google is watching.
    C'mon, the homepage is not showing :) More clear than this what do you want?
