The two most common causes are: a) the document contained no text, or
the text was excluded by noindex meta tags, or b) the document was
disallowed by the server's robots.txt file. If you ran htdig or rundig
with -vvv, then htdig's output should give you more of an indication of
which situation arose with these pages.
