    What does webmaster tools report about your sitemap? How many URLs submitted / how many indexed?

  • That does seem a bit strange?! Searching for "30 years since an amazing video game" returns your homepage at #2 in the SERPs, but searching for site:[www.]example.com "30 years since an amazing video game" does not return anything. (?)

The home page of your site is indexed and cached by Google and appears in search results.

See this screenshot of a search including a string of text taken from your page:

enter image description here

Remember that a "site:" search in Google doesn't necessarily show all the pages that have been indexed, and that the order of pages doesn't reflect the "value" of each page.

  • but every site have this except mine. Can you please explain me why it's happen

  • You do have a number of potential issues with your site. I would expect there to be some information in Google Webmaster Tools is something was wrong. You need to check everything there - how often the site is index, when the last time was, if there was any issues. Also perhaps correct your robots.txt so that it contains: User-agent: * Disallow:
