i would check youve done all this

1. verify your site with google webmasters and add a sitemap. http://www.google.com/webmasters
2. leave links for your site inc. the http:// everywhere you can
3. fill in all the keywords and descirptions in your editors content side bar

4. MY TOP TIP - use google analytics http://www.google.com/analytics

5. remeber its not the only search engine - add your site too Yahoo - http://search.yahoo.com/info/submit.html and msn - http://search.msn.com.sg/docs/submit....

Plus there are other great threads here at getsatisfaction which will help you - a staff member will probably jump in and link you to them

good luck - Lee.

another tip:
when you add keywords to your pages, use commas and use lower case text - ex. mind your own beezwax, mindyourownbeezwax, bee's wax, etc.

Follow these tips and within 3 weeks you will see your pages climb google.

Hello Will,
I was taken to a placeholder page for the second link you gave, is that possibly the wrong url?

For the mindyourownbeezwax.synthasite.com, are you putting the url into the browser window or putting the phrase "mind your own beezwax" into the search box.

It can definitely take some time for sites to be indexed by Google. Have you verified your site with Google Webmaster and submitted a sitemap, this can help the process. Here is a link to our Knowledge Book on this topic: Google Webmaster.

Another good thing to do for you website is to write title, description and keywords tags for each of the pages. Here is another link to our Knowledge Book on this topic: Adding Title, Description & Keywords Tags.

Let me know about the first link and I will check that out as well.
