When typing my domain www.wildridgeview.com in google search, the site itself does not show up, but all domain stat sites. I checked with Bluehost, all is well on my end. The googlebot shows up in the visitor log as well. I have no idea what is causing the problem. It was working well a few weeks ago. Anyone have advice?

In google Webmaster Tools it shows up that there is a DNS error, but on Bluehost everything checks out.

Your website www.wildridgeview.com is redirecting with 301 redirection status code to http://tours.oliviamarone.com/public/vtour/display/30996?a=1 . The 301 status code means that a page has permanently moved to a new location. Therefore, Google is not consider it for Indexing and it would not show up in any search engin.

I checked the status code 301, and it is a server side re- direct. Still baffled.

It makes no difference , server side or browser side.... you are telling Google or other search engines that your site permanently moved to http://tours.oliviamarone.com/public/vtour/display/30996?a=1.

You need to have a website for www.wildridgeview.com, after that (it will take sometime) the search engines start to discover your domain and its website.
