Hey guy,
We have about 10 sites, they all on google without any problems.
However, I just realized that one of them simple disappeared from the search results! The site that just disappeared is still under construction but the domain name has been crawled by google few months ago.
I mean, when I searched google for "mydomainname.com" I COULD see it on the results. But now I cant!
As far as I understand, I did not do anything tricky or spammy, I truly see no objective reason to get banned.
Is this normal? or I got banned?

    site:mydomainname.com should report all pages indexed.

    Is anyone working with you that might have set robots.txt to 'go away' until the construction finished.

      site:mydomainname.com bring 0 results with my domain
      There is NO robots.txt under this domain
      the domain WAS crawled by google on the recent weeks and came up on the results while I searched for site:mydomainname.com

      but like i said, right now site:mydomainname.com bring 0 results
      is it simply because there is no much content there so i was temporarily removed from the search results? or I got simply banned?

    Is it a Wordpress site? If so, look under settings/privacy and see if search engines have been blocked.

    Well, it would appear that you were delisted. Why is anyone's guess.

    Couple of things you can do!
    • Add domain to Google Webmasters
    • Get yourself a sitemap if you don't already have one.
    • Add robots.txt file why would you not have this?
    • If you haven't done it add keywords,description meta tags.
    • Add your site to Google, Bing etc Search "Submit my site to google" etc
    • Post your site in a site review section on a forum eg rate my site

    Might take you half an hour but I can guarantee you that your domain will be in google after that!

    If your worried about content, I have got pages into Google with nothing more than a H1 tag and an image. Its about back linking and letting Google know that your site is actually worth something.

    Good luck
