Google is indexing every page but my Home page....How Do I Correct This?

I just Googled my name to see if my Yola website shows up yet and 3 website entries came up:

1. My old Synthasite site which I unpublished a couple months ago but is a dead link.
2. My Second page of my Yola website (which was there before).
3. Now...my Third page of my Yola website has just been indexed.

Is there something I can fix on my HOME page so that it shows up and not my 2nd and 3rd pages? I tried redoing my keywords and page titles...but is there anything else I could be doing to correct this? I never had this problem with the older Synthasite website.

Have you verified your site in Google Webmaster Tools?

I will take a few screen shots shortly and show you...I would say use the tutorials Yola has but Google has changed the appearance in Webmasters Tools recently.

John...I found where it says to submit sitemap in Google....it had a blank spot after my website address and I added "sitemap.xml". Was this what I was supposed to do or did I shoot myself in the foot again...heh
