Google will show a snippet from the page content by preference or the meta description but only if the search terms are part of the copy.

If you have no snippet it could be for any number of reasons like the page has been partially spidered or pages cannot be spidered at all or is in the process of being dropped out of the index or has just first found etc. etc.

You will need to give us the search term and the url for us to make a correct diagnosis.

It's quite a challenge to do forensic seo in German for a mono-linguist like me :)

This is my preliminary diagnosis:

The first file Google looks for is /robots.txt and in your case a 404 sends it to /index.cgi which it then tries to interpret as a robots.txt file. It gives up and decides not to index.

If that is the correct conclusion none of the pages on this site will be indexed - is that the case?

If so simply put up a /robots.txt file something like this:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /cgi-bin/

For more information on robots.txt files see here http://www.robotstxt.org/wc/exclusion-admin.html

Before you put in the robots.txt www.dieanzeigen.de/robots.txt resolved to www.dieanzeigen.de/index.cgi via a 404 not found.

It looks very similar to www.dieanzeigen.de so it's probably a duplicate content penalty. Which site was first (or spidered first)?

www.dieanzeigen.de was first spidered. And i added another site www.die-anzeige.de. The google team told me per email that there are no panelty at this site.
Do you see any other reason to bring that result?

I think what Google mean when they say penalty is not the same as us. They would call this 'duplicate content filtering'.

When the PR dropped to zero was there any change in the rankings?

Submitting each page is a waste of time, Google will find pages by itself when it is spidering the site.  This site needs some work I can see.  

Where are you located (what town?) and how should my contact get in touch with you?
