My site is about 4 years old. It used to be a PR3 site, and for the last 2 years we haven't been able to find it in the google index;
[url removed, login to view]:en-US:official&client=firefox-a
[url removed, login to view]
We have constantly improved the site to make sure it's search engine friendly, we have a good bunch of back links and we aren't doing anything dodgy.
The only reason I can think of is that someone once hijacked our joomla installation and sent out a bunch of spam, it may have somehow been manually removed from the index after a complaint? (this wasn't our fault either, it was the hosting companies server config).
We've processed 5-6 reinclusion requests.
We have good content. We have a sitemap, we have analytics installed.
As far as I can tell, we should be doing ok.
I will pay $100 for anyone who can get my site indexed in Google. You can have up to 2 months to get indexed.
If you don't get it indexed, we get our money back.
Please see the files attached (some other pieces of this puzzle!)
