Had someone contact me about being banned from Google.  They have the grey tool bar instead of the white.  But I found a site that said if you typed in "+www.yourdomain.+com" in the google search engine, then chances are you were not banned, just down?

Anyway to confirm?

Corey -

A grey toolbar means that Google couldn't find a PageRank for the page right then and that's all it means.

Of course there can be lots of reasons Google can't find the PageRank but the most common is that the page was not crawled at the time that the last snapshot was done.

If you do a site:www.domain.com and you can find your site then it isn't banned.
