Hi Ambeco

It can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks before your site is indexed. I'm in the same situation as you. I'm still waiting as well for my site to be indexed. I'm told that these things take time.

My first site took a few days the other two took 2 and 3 weeks....The only difference maybe is that with my first site I was and still am very aggressive about getting other sites to link to me.

Hello Ambeco,

Yes, littleus and John are both correct; indexing can take some time.
