Hello,
Yes, it can be a bit frustrating waiting for the search engines to pick your site up, but there are things you can do to speed up the process.

Please take a look at our tutorials: Promoting Your Website, as well as the Google Webmaster, these will give you some great ideas to get started.

Hope this helps!

No worries, it's good to try to understand the process!

It can take between 2 weeks and up to 6 months for a website to be indexed by Google, this is why you are not finding your site by "Googling" it; and it is like this for every new website.

It is a waiting game in some respect, but you can do things to promote your site while you wait such as the things in the tutorials links I gave you. These strategies may possibly get Google to index your site sooner.

Another good thing to do for your site is add tags. Search engines read text to know the topic of a web page and there are three tags that specifically alert the search engine to what a page is about; the title, description and keywords tag. Synthasite provides an area to edit these tags; click on the Properties Tab on the Content Sidebar and it is a good idea to give each page of your website unique tags.

The area labeled Window Title is where you will put your title tag. Your title tag should include the main keyword or concept of your page, your business or website name and your location if this would be important to your visitors; it should also be under 70 characters long. Here is a basic example:

Fine Gold Jewelry | ABC Jewel Company | My Town, Texas

The area labeled Description is where you will put your description tag. Your description tag should include your main keywords for the page, or variations of your keywords, as well as the name of your company and the location if this would be important to your visitors; it should be under 200 characters long and should entice Internet users to click. Here is a basic example:

ABC Jewel Company provides customers in and around My Town, Texas with the finest yellow and white gold jewelry imported directly from Italy. Stop in today!

The area labeled Keywords is where you will put in the main keywords for the page. Don't stuff keywords, only list keywords that apply to the content of the page. Here is a basic example:

fine gold jewelry, gold jewelry, white gold jewelry, ABC Jewel Company, My Town Texas, TX

You will also want to try to easily blend the keywords you utilized in your tags into the content on the page of the site. Again, don't stuff them in, blend them in casually making sure to keep the flow of your content.

Keep working at it! It will eventually happen.

Is anyone familiar with submitting a sitemap Via Googles Webmaster Tools. The question I am wondering is what is an example of a Sitemap that should be submitted and what actually gets submitted into the box they provide for submitting a sitemap.
I Tried reading all their article but honostly, I am confused more after reading them.

Thank You
Jason

If it is any help I was able to get Yahoo site explorer to verify my site by putting their meta tag in with page description on my home page...indexed very quickly....Site maps for Google.... Synthasite makes them for us as we add pages....All you need to do is in Webmaster tools go to sitemaps...enter your home page URL ...choose..sitemap.xml and submit.....Hope I didn't confuse you more
