Hi Natasha - have you used Local Boost to submit your site? My Yola > Local Boost. Once submitted to that directory, it make take some search engines 60 to 90 days to review and list your site. The 60-90 days is a search engine industry standard time - not something Yola has any control over.

Here is a tutorial regarding Local Boost:

Did you receive a verification call from InfoGroup after submitting your site with Local Boost:

To manually submit to Google: Create a Google account > log into Google Webmaster Tools > click Add Site > type in your full URL > click Continue > in name box, type in site name > on site verification page, select verification method "Add a meta tag to your sites homepage" and follow instructions on page. Enter the Google code in the Yola Sitebuilder > Site > Site Settings > Tracking > Google Webmaster.

Here is another tutorial that goes through steps of specifically listing your site with Google:
