Hi, MsFit ~
I searched Google for your domain, www.theelitephysique.com, and got
the following results,
"Sorry, no information is available for the URL
* If the URL is valid, try visiting that web page by
clicking on the following link: www.theelitephysique.com
* Find web pages that contain the term "www.theelitephysique.com"
Google search link -
So at the moment, with or without any PageRank, your site isn't in Google's index.
There are several reasons your site could be absent, and Google lists
them in its "My web pages used to be listed and now they aren't",
"* Your site may not have been reachable when we tried
to crawl it because of network or hosting problems.
When this happens, we retry multiple times, but if
the site cannot be crawled, it will not be listed
in our current index. If it was a transient problem,
your site will likely show up in the next index,
which will be completed in a few weeks.
* A technical glitch on our side may have caused us to
'miss' your site. In crawling more than 4 billion
pages, our system experiences hiccups from time to
time. Again, this is a transient problem, and your
site will likely show up in the next index. Please
be patient with us during this period, as we are not
able to modify our index by hand to add sites missed
in this way.
* The contents of your page or the links pointing to
your page changed significantly and you no longer
have a sufficiently high PageRank, or your page had
low PageRank to begin with and a small change caused
you to be dropped from the Google index.
* Your page was manually removed from our index,
because it did not conform with the quality standards
necessary to assign accurate PageRank. We will not
comment on the individual reasons a page was removed
and we do not offer an exhaustive list of practices
that can cause removal.
Only Google knows if and why your site might have been removed or if
this is just a temporary glitch, and they won't necessarily tell you.
You can try writing Google at email@example.com, but there is no
guarantee they'll tell you anything.
On the other hand, in investigating this question, I did come across
this Click Bank site, which has substantially the same information you
have on your own site.
Google WILL remove sites with substantially the same information,
seeing it as an attempt at 'spamming'. This could also be the reason
your site no longer shows.
If you have other sites which have substantially the same content as
www.theelitephysique.com, now is the time to get rid of them or change
their content, and I would strongly suggest you do that before writing
Google for their comments.
I'd also suggest you do something about that Click Bank site, which is
so identical to your own that it can only hurt and not help you.
If you want to maintain copy on a lot of sites, it's best not to have
the same copy on them all. While it may not be your intention, it is
nonetheless viewed as an attempt to "spam" or "game" the system, and
you will be penalized for that.
If you think your site may have been dropped because of the duplicate
content, you can, according to Google,
"If you think your site may fall into this category,
you might try 'cleaning up' the page and sending a
re-inclusion request to firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not
make any guarantees about if or when we will re-
include your site."
There are technical reasons listed above why your site might not be
listed or included in Google's index at this time. Only Google can
tell you if or why your site may have been dropped.
It is a fact that they will penalize sites with duplicate content, and
I discovered at least one instance of that happening (The Click Bank
site). I would recommend dropping the Click Bank content or
substantially changing it so it does not appear to be a duplicate
site. I would also suggest removing other duplicate content from any
other similar sites you might be listed on.
After that, I would write to Google as stated above, list the changes
you have made and ask for reinstatement.
Important Google Links For Your Reference
I am including important links from Google's site. This information
will help you understand Google's goals and responsibility to the web
searcher (and not the webmaster or site owner).
It is incumbent upon you, the webmaster or the website owner, to
ensure your site meets these basics if you want your site listed.
Webmasters who do follow the guidelines and avoid Google's "Thou shalt
nots" usually have no problem getting listed and showing up under the
search terms they desire.
* Google Today (absolutely the best information you
can read about the "how and why" of Google's results
* How Do I Get My Site Listed on Google?
* My Web Pages Are Not Currently Listed (a good 'primer'
on how and why Google works so well)
* PageRank Information (covers both Google's PageRank and
* Webmaster Guidelines (contains both the dos and don'ts)
* Google Facts & Fiction (can you buy your way to a
high ranking in Google?)
* Search Engine Optimizers (some good advice on what to look
for if you're going to hire a Search Engine Optimizer)
* Frequently Asked Questions (pretty much what it says, but
definitely worth wading through)
* Remove Content from Google's Index (just in case you feel
a burning need to start all over again)
Other Sources of Information
There is also good information from many of the top search engine
optimization experts, such as
* Detlev Johnson, Search Engine Guide
* Danny Sullivan, Search Engine Watch
* Jill Whalen, High Rankings
* Shari Thurow, Web Pro News (and quoted all over the Internet)
who all have columns or newsletters to which you can subscribe and
keep abreast of the best way to use good content for better
positioning in search engine results.
In addition, Webmaster World - http://www.webmasterworld.com/ - has
discussion boards on most of the search engines. While some of the
discussions are anecdotal and/or questions for information, there is
usually enough discussion to keep abreast of what seems to be
There is an entire section devoted to Google at:
It never hurts to keep track of the discussions; but remember, trying
to optimize for search engines only is like trying to hit a moving
target. You'll notice among the more experienced contributors to the
discussions - plus the SEO experts listed above - that there really is
no substitute for content, relevant links and good HTML.

Besides the specific searches listed above, I relied on reliable
resources I use in my daily business as a designer and SEO consultant.
I hope this helps,
