It takes time for new sites to be picked up by search engines. There are however, things you can do to increase your ranking.
When you publish your site we add it to Google's index of sites on your
behalf. Then it's a matter of sitting back and waiting for Google's
crawlers to reach your site. This could take as little as a few days,
or as long as a few months. Unfortunately, this is out of our control.
The most important things you can do to get your site indexed is to update your content frequently, and get other related sites to link to your site. Search engines like sites with inbound links from other quality sites.
You can also add tags to your pages. These are key words which will
help search engines identify your site. In the properties sidebar for
each page you will see a field labelled "Description". Type your tags
in there - your location, your business, what you offer etc. This is
the place to put the sorts of things you'd expect people to be typing
into search engines to find you. Then republish your site.
