I've got an interesting problem. A site of mine (sorry I've just seen that no links are allowed so I've removed it) has been on-line for about 2 years now but simply won't come up on a google search and yet comes up in position 1 page 1 of yahoo for various search terms.
I could understand if it came up lower down the orders but it doesn't (and hasn't) come up at all.
A site:xxx search brings up the site but even very specific searches (like all of the home page url except the 'k' of 'xxx.co.uk') doesn't bring it up, nor does a search for the exact home page title or description.
At first I thought it might have been penalised for something or other but as that usually last for up to a couple of months or so it should not affect it now. The site has been given a page rank 2 by google.
I have various other sites which are similar in build (but not content) which do well in all search engines but this one is just a mystery to me.
If anyone can spot what's going on then please, please tell me.
PS [I'll probably need to let someone know the site name at some stage so that they can check oit out.]

Try installing a Google Sitemap. That pretty much forces the searchengine to recognize your site.
On a second note: You have to remember that the different search engines rank a web site differently. Google can reward link manipulation (including internal linking). MSN and Yahoo mostly like on-site …

what's the keyword you use to check in the SERP?
