    Domain name was registered one year ago and website updated on July.
    site:homepage url it shows 71,200 results and title and descriptions all updated
    The weird thing is i can't find homepage on first 10 pages and also the same case when i searched homepage URL
    We didn't do much link building....

    A few reasons for this,
    - Your robots.txt files are blocking the crawlers
    - Your homepage is not discoverable (due to lack of backlinks)
    - You home page isn't listed in the Sitemap
    - Your homepage is having dupe content which is why Google is not indexing it.
