Please help: Website no longer appearing in google search

I've read the FAQs and searched the help center. 
My URL is: www.gtispindle.com

I am not our website person so I don't know allot about this but my boss asked me to help him learn why this happened so I wanted to try here. We hired a full time person to do this but he is on vacation and this was supposedly fixed before he left. He thought it was an error in our robot.txt file but I think he might be mistaken as we no longer show at all. We used to rank on page one for our industry and have now disappeared from google completely. 

I know a little bit, enough to get by and I will look uo the rest as I go. I just need to know where to start so I can help get this fixed as it is killing our online business inquiries. Please help if you can, I am open to suggestions, all and any.


Thanks so much and Happy Thanksgiving.

Hello Stacey

Google has indexed over 50 pages from your site, but I cannot see the home page among them - at least not in the normal place so I'll have a look around and get back to you in a few minutes.

You do have a robots.txt, and it is NOT blocking anything.

Do you or your colleagues have access to Gopogle Webmaster Tools for this site?


If so, please sign in to it and find "Fetch as Google" to make sure that your home page is accessible at: www.gtispindle.com  and if it is, then click the button to request that it be added to Google search indexes.

You might be thinking what's the point as you can see it there in your browser, but we need to check that Google can see it - sometimes there is a difference.

How do you check that we are indexing. When I type in GTI Spindle I see other pages but not our actual wesbite itself.

Thanks for the update!  I'm seeing more pages indexed -- including your home page. :-)
