Google Not Indexing Recipe Sites

I have two relatively new recipe websites that Google is not playing nice with – I’m really not sure what the issue is but am considering fileing a reconsideration request from Google webmaster tools.

The first site is, A domain name I mentioned a couple of posts back – a week or so on and it still is not appearing in Google’s index.

I have verified in webmaster tools and also added a site map which has been submitted to Google – the site has been online for a month or so. The issue with this domain is that it was an expired domain name and I don;t know what the previous owner used it for… hopefully nothing evil.

The second domain name is free vegetarian recipes, This one is at least popping in and out of the search engine results pages, but is not at all stable – the domain was ranking 3rd for “Free Vegetarian Recipes” when it was purchased but has slid backwards since.

I’ll be keeping an eye on these and will post a progress report. Any thoughts you care to leave in the comments are appreciated.
