    I recently got my site accepted into this css directory, which has some crazy good metrics.

    www.cssbag.com

    But for some reason, the site is not even indexed in Google.

    I looked at the source code and didn't see any noindex tags, but I don't know why they would do that anyway.

    Any ideas?

    Possibly because it has a penalty for having a spammy link profile?

    Yeah, it probably received a penalty at some point in the past. I tried looking for any mentions of this site on any other website, but it seems like it wasn't really popular.

    Actually, I ran it through archive.org and it looks like it was used as a PBN in the past. A shame, considering it actually has some pretty good links pointing to it. Fucks sake though, trying to find decent PBN domains is quickly becoming a nightmare from hell lol. So many crappy or chinese PBN's that have been churned and burned.

    Now no-one is suggesting you are doing it on purpose as it often happens by accident. Hence, all the URL's that Patrick has highlighted appear to have that ominous "over optimization" look. The URL's are all the same except the city or the town at the end of the URL.
