Hello,

We have a website that comes up as unindexed in Google, Bing or Yahoo when entering it in this site:

ismysiteindexed.com

Our developer set up a redirect.  The site above says our title is "301 Moved Permanently" and the Sample of the site content is:"10.0 (Ubuntu)".  The site is built with Wordpress and we have used Yoast to include keywords and snippet etc.  

Does anyone know why this is happening and what to do to solve it?

Many thanks in advance.

Check the .htaccess this is the place he should have set it, so you can edit it
if there is no redirection into the .htaccess you may want to check cpanel, plesk or webadmin there are some place to  set redirection
You better contact your dev for more help.

That site you referenced is not accurate, it is completely broken from what I can tell. I put a domain into it that I know is indexed and it still says it is not indexed.

You can check actual indexation with the "site:" operator.

For example:
https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Awww.experts-exchange.com

The results show that there are over 1M pages indexed:
site operator search
Compare that to the broken tool you referenced:
ismysiteindexed broken tool
In any event, you should sign up with Search Console:

don't give me points,   I'm just agreeing with Lucas .  -

the site   ismysiteindexed.com  is rubbish at most and a scam to sign up to something  at worse.  every site Tried says "not indexed"
use Google analytics and google webmaster

www.google.com/analytics
and

www.google.com/webmasters
