I had a strange call with a google adsense consultant. They asked for the URL of my web site. I gave them https://theateronline.com – It has been in continuous operation for 20 years. They told me the site was not live. Apparently, all they could see was the description in the meta data. They could not see the site. I called again and got a different consultant – He said the same thing. This is very old code – is there any chance their security setting is blocking the site? Everybody I know sees it fine. By the way, customer support has apparently been move to India - Communication is not as good as it used to be.

I think they're full of shit...

You can try this and clearly see that the entire HTML document is coming down.

loHttp = CREATEOBJECT("wwhttp")
ShowText( loHttp.Get("https://www.theateronline.com"))

I do see that your HTML header has a comment in it which probably not optimal as it might not treat your page as HTML5:

<!doctype html>
<!--LIDIA.XZC-->

<html>
<head><!--Lidia.xzc -->

I would make sure to keep the doctype and html header together:

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<!--Lidia.xzc -->

But that won't break an HTML parser unless it's some custom thing they're doing at Google.
