    I just registered a new website a couple days ago, and so far I have only made one blog post (using wordpress). I submitted the website to Google last night and was added shortly after, although the one blog post seemed to take a bit longer.

    When the one blog post I have got indexed, it didn't even seem to be in the top 1000 serp for a very unique 4 phrase keyword. I did some checks over the post and came to the conclusion that it was most likely keyword stuff because I was using the keywords a bit excessively.

    Early today I updating the post. Which mostly still looks the same, but just without those excessive posts. It's totally unique content, I even checked copyscape. I'm not doing anything blackhat. But all of a sudden now the post disappeared off of Google. My homepage is still intact.

    My question is.. Is there any chance that it was removed and there is just a delay until the new updated content is indexed? Like is that normal that they would de-index the page and then re-index it after.

    I can't see it being anything else because there's nothing bad with the site. And I only made the website better because there is no longer and type of keyword stuffing.

    Any thoughts?

    Edit: Also, I hope it wouldn't have to do anything with me googling the site like a 100 times today in a bunch of different ways (and from 2 IP which is only because I'm visiting family now).

    Just be patient. It happens with new websites, add more content and you would see all your posts indexed again hopefully. Nothing to worry about.

    I think you're exactly right. I was finally able to find something on Google on this subject. Its not exactly the same issue but its close enough.

    It says:Changing your permalink structure may result in your website being deindexed by Google temporarily.
    I didn't actually change my permalinks but I'm sure this is it.

    Wait for a few days more. Sometimes google takes 24 hours and sometimes few days to index things. If you have made some changes with the blog then google should be updating it ( just my opinion ).

    In the mean time, use twitter and facebook to share the url just to provide some social signals coming in

    It did eventually end up coming back. But oddly enough, it came back with the old content. That's just very strange to me that I would update content on my website, and then shortly after they de-indexed that page, then the next day they put it back without showing the updated content.

    There are no messages in my Google Webmaster account, but when I go under "Crawl Errors" it says:
    URL Errors
    Status:
    1/3/14
    Top 1,000 pages with errors

    Not really much of an explanation though.. I'm really hoping they will update the content soon since the page cannot be found in the top 1000 serp which I'm thinking is related to keyword density(that is now fixed).

    I've had a similar issue, registered a new domain maybe 3 weeks ago, it showed in Google when it was just sat in my hosting account with a "registered by" holding page on it.

    Put site on it, have added posts regularly - nothing - not one single page indexed in 2 1/2 weeks.

    Something really not right there.
