Question My site homepage has suddenly disappeared from Google Search



New Member
Hi All
Suddenly my website homepage isn't showing in Google search at all.
Until yesterday when searching with terms such as "octopus energy referral" my site was appearing as usual in page 1.
Now when I search with such terms, my site isn't there until page 3, but that isn't even my main page of the site, which is pretty odd.
So basically whatever happened rather than having impacted my site in general from appearing in google, it has impacted my main or homepage which was ranking really well until very recently..
This is my site: octopusenergyreferral com

Any ideas? This is driving me crazy and really don't have anything in mind that might have caused this.

Hope someone can shed some light!

Many thanks

I can see your homepage is indexed, how old is the site ? Doesnt seem that old currently and doesnt carry any authority. When searching your branded phrase you are in 3rd place, but that doesnt mean you'll stay there, you'll fluctuate until your brand is more established, especially since there are other sites with the same branding.

My site is about 4 months old.
It's very odd, my site wasn't showing in google only yesterday evening on the main keywords such as "octopus energy referral" or "octopus 50 credit" and now it's like if nothing ever happened, it's showing as normal
I wonder if google was just checking the site or ran some update yesterday evening
any ideas of what might have happened there?
This is something I have never seen or heard before and it would be interested to know why this happened, it would also help me not to get an heart attack next time :)
