    Not deindexed but home page dissapeared from ranking? Only inner pages remain?

    Okay guys, about 3 weeks ago my home page dissappeared from the rankings. Only links to other areas of my site is showing up but around page 5 or 6. Has anyone else encountered this and if so what was the outcome? How long did it take for your home page to come back. I am asusming I am in a penalty and not a dance.

    this happened to one of my sites when i posted a link to all my internal pages on the homepage in an attempt to get them all indexed at once. When I removed the links , the homepage was indexed again. phew!! So i suggest you try and really examine your homepage for any on page stuff that might seem a bit spammy. or overuse of target keyword. after you make the changes,just ping the homepage URL at pingler.com to let G know youve updated the page.

    if it's penalty, iv heard u have to change ur content quality, and check your backlink, and maybe should take a month to get it listed again (it's from what i'v heard, not my personal experience)

    Just made some changes. I haven't gotten any responses from people that have recovered and how they accomplished it...

    Why would linking to internal pages cause a penalty? Isn't that what a site does? For example your homepage will naturally have menus.

    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!

    Hmm I am just stumped, I can't seem to find anything that G wouldn't like...

    I've got another site which is basically the same template and that's in the same position as before.

    So what does it mean that your home page got deindexed? how do I check? and is there a way we can automate this process so we know right away when something gets deindexed?

    I use the free version of traffic travis. I check my rank daily and it will tell you what urls are ranking. Once i saw my homepage gone, I knew I was in trouble.
