Hi Duarthe,

It takes time for your site to get indexed by Google. It be 3 weeks to 3 months before it's indexed.

You can help speed it up though by submitting you site's sitemap to Google Webmaster's. Here's a tutorial on setting webmaster up.

Just keep adding fresh, quality content to your site as this also helps getting your site noticed by search engine's. Give it time!
