    Hello,

    Recently I purchased a domain name through godaddy, because it was only $3 and they seemed to be the cheapest. I started building my site and it got indexed in Google within a couple of days. However, GoDaddy wanted me to verify me to be the payment holder, so I submitted my identification but it took them a couple of days to unlock my domain and in those few days my domain has been deindexed by Google, it doesn't show up anymore when I type site:"domain.com" in the search box.

    Will this have a negative effect on my site, and will it take a long time before Google will index my site again? I have updated it every day since I've got access to my domain back (which is about 3 days now) and I also sent out pings, but it hasn't been added to the index yet. I hope someone can give me some clarification.

    Thanks.

    Was it an old domain? If so it might have been removed from Google long ago for a bad reason.

    No, it was a new domain I purchased through GoDaddy.

    try the site:domain query without quotes " ". If it's still gone, you should ping it on twitter and see if it comes back. (after a few days) As long as the site is quality it should come back. New sites can get de-indexed if they take and it looks spammy, or it doesn't give a good user experience.

    When I do that it shows 1 page I created after the other pages got deindexed. The other pages I made after the deindexation don't show up however. I have also made a tweet about it already a few days ago.

    In the sandbox. Again.
    It might be worth adding it to Google Webmaster Tools and see if there are any messages.

    I had it added to Google Webmaster Tools before but I removed it yesterday, because a lot of people said I shouldn't have Google Webmaster Tools/Google Analytics on my site. There weren't any messages when I deleted it.

    Google throws out "doorway" pages and GoDaddy splash pages from its SERPs rather quickly, especially for new domains.

    Don't worry about it, just do business as usual and DON'T let GoDaddy take down your domain name again.

    Your website will be reindexed soon after you give Google a reason to have it back in the SERPs.

    How are you checking to see if it's indexed? site:yoururl.com?

    I wouldn't worry too much about it since you didn't give google any reason to de-index you besides the godaddy thing. I would keep adding new content and slowly build links to it.

    Now, I checked again to see if it was showing up, and to my surprise, the homepage was indexed this time. After a few minutes I checked again, but now it was gone again? Is this normal?

    Definitely not normal. Are you searching with cookies and cache cleared? Also did you put your site into webmaster tools?

    Ah, you hit the nail right on the head. When I search in incognito mode the homepage is indexed, thanks!

    I didn't put my site into Webmaster tools, actually I removed it because I read a lot of posts of people saying you shouldn't have too many Google things on your site, but I really don't know whether or not I should keep my site in Google Webmaster tools.
