My Home Page used to be Indexed and now it does not show up anymore when I do a search. Only my second and third pages show up now.

How do I get my Home page to show up again? Thanks for any help.

Are you talking about on Google your page isn't showing up, or all of the search engines?

Hello Deborah,
I did take a look at the pages of your site that are indexed and you are correct, the home page is not currently indexed. This can happen and will happen at various times for websites. The best thing to do to keep your site pages indexed is to make sure to do search engine optimization. Here is a link to our tutorial series on this if you would like to take a look: SEO Tutorials.

One thing I can see is that the images on your home page do not have alt attributes, this would be a good thing to do. Here is a tutorial with more information on how to do this: Tutorial: Adding alt text to pictures.

What you should also do is continue to update your site often as this will encourage the search engine spiders to visit and index the pages of your site.

I hope this information is helpful!

NATHAN.....you know I never tried any other search engines but Google until just now. I searched on Bing....Yahoo...AltaVista and it looks like my home page and the second page shows up. So I guess it is just Google that seems to not list my Home page...only the second page and the 4th page now for some reason. Is this something I can correct myself?

EMMY....Thank you for your suggestions I will see if I can figure out how to add alt text to my pictures once I read the tutorial. As for updating my site that is kind of hard to do as my musical service doesn't really change but I will see if I can make some kind of minor changes. I just am not very creative or tech savvy. :-/

Thank You,
DJ
