    Spidering / indexing problem never seen before


    Hello guys. We have a little problem, hope you can help us out. I built a website for a friend of mine. But in Google, Yahoo, Bing etc., when you go and type his website name "vividstories", no title or description appear, just the website URL. We have no idea why this is happening. Anyone has any ideas about it ? It's the 1st time we see such a thing (he doesn't have a lot of IT knowledge, but I've been online for quite a while now)

    Here is the robots.txt for the site:

    Code:
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /
    Which basically blocks the entire site from being crawled by search engines.
