    dead domain?

    Hi,
    I'm asking on behalf of a friend of mine who is having some trouble with his domain name and not being indexed by google.

    The thing is his domain name was registered with google and his site was in there but there was no information about the site underneath and no further pages have been spidered... it was simply his domain name appearing, now who searches for their domain name?

    That was the case up until recently however it looks like it has completely dropped out of the index of google... i've resumbitted it for him through the addurl page, do you guys have any idea why it was not being spidered in the first place?

    It was made in mambo and the address is http://www.solsure.com

    any help would be appreciated...

    James on behalf of Richard

    You need to get other sites linking into your site. Then Google will index it.

    michelangelo, yes i know we need backlinks.

    however, when it was listed in google there was no page information at all...literally just the domain name, he is thinking of moving to a different domain but there must be another reason... anyone any ideas?

    Sites with low PR don't get spidered as often; this site is showing PR0 for me. As your PR climbs, you'll get spidered more often.
