magento2.2 – Why Google can no longer find my homepage when I do a google search but in Google search console finds the URL and reports no issues

My website which is on a Magento 2.3 platform has ranked on the 1st page of Google around the number 4 position for several years so I know it functions well and is properly optimised. A week ago a 3rd party added 250 new products using a feed from a spreadsheet and FDP for the pictures. I also removed some categories from the homepage as the associated products were no longer being sold.

Google can no longer find my homepage when I do a google search although it lists many other pages from the website but not the actual homepage.. I have performed a Google search on the actual Homepage URL and it doesn’t find it. Google search console however finds the URL and reports no issues.
Any ideas how to fix this issue.
Thanks
