I recently bought my domain and it is now active on the web. If I type in the URL in any browser my site shows up. However, I was unable to search for it in search engines. So, I submitted my site to google and yahoo. Yet, I was still unable to find my site. Does anyone know the reason for this? Any help is appreciated.
It takes awhile for it toshow up in the search engines. It is possible for it to take more than a month in some cases. The easiest why for it to show up is for a link to your website be displayed on a website that is already listed by the search engines.
Google has a web service that you can install a map on your site for Google to access. This can speed up the process as well.
Now mind you I have had website show up on google without doing anything. so it just depends on how patient you are.
