I'm experiencing a strange issue when moving my penalized site to a new domain. All of my pages are being indexed with exception to the site's root page, the index page. I have removed the old site from the index with a request and a noindex meta tag, nothing is showing up when I do a search for "site:domain.com". I have checked to make sure that none of my content has been copied by using copyscape and yet it is not being indexed. I have heard that even without a 301 redirect a penalty can follow. Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas on what I can do? Maybe have all my content re-written? Maybe there is a sandbox for my index page?
