Hello Dennis

Unfortunately, Google spider's can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months before indexing your site.

Yola has also put together a great deal of documentation to help you with SEO, here is what we have for you:

1. We have a series of short SEO Tutorials which will bring you through the various aspects of planning, building and promoting your site with SEO in mind. Here is a link: SEO Tutorials.

2. Verify your site with Google Webmaster and submit a sitemap: Google Webmaster Tutorial.

3. Each time you make a change to your site, you can Tweet the changes to your Twitter account. This is a great way to encourage more traffic to your site. Here is a link: Tweet your new site or your recent changes.

4. Watch a webinar on Introduction to SEO where we will bring you through the various ways to optimize your site in the Yola Site Builder. Here is a link: Yola.tv.

5. Analyze your site traffic and how your visitors behave while on your site with Google Analytics. Here is a link: Google Analytics Tutorial.

Search engine optimization is something that takes time and effort, and is not a quick process; it's something that you will want to work on before, during and after you publish your website. Take your time going through these resources; we hope you find them helpful.

I had my website made in macromedia flash (adobe flash) and I tell you if you are using flash is very hard for you to have an indexed website in google because he cannot retrieve many info from your website. In my opinion you have to add at least a html section for the search engines. Good luck!
