"I think the problem people are talking about in this thread has revolved around index page missing first try then appearing on refresh.
It looks to have been fixed."
Okay, I counted several posts for the "refresh and your page appears where it should" issue being resolved. Umbra/kevinpate/WebFusion and anyone else who still sees something that they're worried about, would you be willing to do a report? This time, use the keyword "notindexpage" and I'll read through those and see if there's any common thread. It's best if you can include your site name, specific queries, or anything else you've noticed (does the page not show up for months, or only not show up recently, how old is the site, etc.). Not sure if I'll find anything, but I'm happy to check.
(Napoleon, I'll try to post updates on anything I find out about pdf/doc/commercial pages. The timeline is longer for that one though--prolly several days or a week or so to get some data that I can chew on.)
