Hi Stephen,

It can take some time for your site to be indexed by the search engines even if you feel you have done all you can in terms of search engine optimization.

The best thing to do right now is to continue to add fresh content to your site often, and continue to build backlinks. A great way to add fresh content to your site is with a blog. A blog makes it easy for you to quickly add new content to your site to update your site visitors who have subscribed to your blog, and the search engines like to see new content being added to a site as well.

Yes Stephen,
follow Kershnee.

Here is how to submit your site to Yahoo , and Bing.

Go to these URLs

siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com
bing.com/webmaster

log in to each and add your site. They will give you a meta tag each.

Copy both of them and paste in Notepad(windows) then , copy the two meta tags and put them in a html widget , on very top of your site's index page , and publish.
Then , you can verify your site with Yahoo and Bing.

Also you need to create some links to your site.
Pegasusdirectory.com
jayde.com
dmoz.org
dir.yahoo.com

are some leading Directories which categorizes and publishes about web sites sent them.

Good Luck.

Yes.
SEO means Search Engine Optimization.
Search Engines such as Google uses a number of terms to determine how the content of our site relevant to each word or phase , and offers us a Rank. In google , the Rank is called PageRank and varies from n/a , 0 , 1 - 10.

For an example , my site- www.techrome.com has a PageRank - 2, which is hard to get. ( hooray!)

more Pagerank = more times your site seen on search results.
All webmasters need to get a higher rank and tries to create in links and add fresh content , you too.

Meta tags means a special tag type which doesn't show for human visitors.(animals too)

search engines use a Robot , which usually called as Bot (google bot - Googlebot , Bing bot- MSNbot)
can read meta data and act for that instructions.

For an example, if you did the google webmaster tutorial published by yola , you have added a meta tag which can be read by every bot , but reacts by Googlebot.

Google , Yahoo and Bing requires adding a metatag to your site to confirm that you own the site.
This is what I mentioned about 'put meta tag given by Yahoo and Bing '.

I am developing a site for webmaster lessons , in my site - www.techrome.com

I'd like to invite you to sign up there and get articles on Webmaster lessons.
