I recently created my first ever website. Was just a bit of fun to see what exactly is involved and to see if I can pull in any traffic. It took about a week for the site to get indexed. As of yet though not of the pages on my site seem to be indexed by Google. I have the main homepage then 3 seperate pages at the moment. It's been two weeks since I created the first additional page. Anyone know if I am doing anything wrong? Will the extra pages get indexed? How long might it take? Any help greatly appreciated.
andy, try adding your new site to your profile page so people can take a look. My pages were added almost immediately, fresh content to google is normally indexed within hours. Are you sure about this?
Hi Brian, thanks for the reply. OK have added a link into my profile page. I am pretty sure the pages are not indexed. Is there any way I can check this? Have already tried a few methods, maybe I'm not checking properly. But I would say I'm 99% sure they are not indexed.
Just had a look at your site, you have 4 pages in total is that correct. I copied and pasted your url into google for you. To add any pages to google just type in the google search box - add website to google and you are requested to add your url and copy a ding bat, thats all there is to it.
Cheers Brian, will give that a try. And yes, there are four pages altogether.
Just tried doing what you said. Where I add the URL it say that I only need to add the top-level page, I don't need to add every web page. So should I try submitting my main page again, or try adding speciifc pages even though I'm asked not to do that?
Andy you need only enter the url of the name of your site, this is in your case the first page, any subsequent pages written will then be automatically added and indexed. When any searcher finds your site they can then see what I saw when I looked and go to your other pages if they want to. From what I'm looking at you don't have a problem.
You can use Google webmaster tool for your site.
There are lots of thing which helps you to track the crawl error, XML sitemap submission and may more things.
Submit your site to SEs. Normally, it should take no more than 2 days to get a page indexed.
Put a link to your website in your profile and then we could take a look?
You could ping your pages, create backlinks to them, tweet them etc
A new site needs all the exposure you can get - you could find other blogs on a similar topic and offer to write guest posts etc
That's not a bad idea, will post a link on my profile page. Have a few links up there already, although they are to my main page and not the individual pages. How do I submit a page to a search engine?
Here is how to submit a sitemap.

register your site with attracta.com they do everything for you and for free. Works really well until you make some money then you have to pay for it - but if you are making it because they get you indexed and crawled continuously then . . .
Link building and quality contents for website is very important to get index fast in Google you also need to update website regularly to improve ranking
This is a great questions. I am checking out Attracta myself right now.
Google Webmaster Tools is all you realy need to look in to imo.
Ok, have signed up to Attracta, used goodle Webmaster tools and still not seen my pages indexed. Any more advice? Am swiftly running out of ideas!

Hi there,I've been hearing discussions that noindexing hubs (because they are idled) impacts their backlinks in some way, and I'd like to find out if this is true.I've been researching this a bit online and have found the following:- According to the Google Webmaster forum, Google *does* count...

Elsewhere on the forums people are reporting very long delays in getting indexed by Google - the delays seem to be increasing. Obviously this has been caused by the NOINDEX tag added to new hubs when under review and to ZZZ hubs while being reconsidered. Surely this is of concern to HP? As a writer...

HubPages used to provide us with an organizational tool within our profile pages that enabled us to group or categorize different hubs. For example, poetry, short stories, articles, etc. This issue has probably been addressed previously, but I was hoping HP would consider restoring this...

Having just started to look at webmaster tools this may be in the wrong section and it may be just my complete lack of understanding but;Google webmasters tools and the "index status" tab should return a graph according to their description that should continue to grow as pages are...
