Hi there,

There could be a large number of reasons for a site not to show up in Google. For new sites it takes a while before they are indexed (often they are "sandboxed"). Also, maybe Google doesn't even know of the existence of the web site?

Do you have a URL of the page for us to look at?

Imar

Default RE: Google Search

I do have a URL:

www.forro.co.za

Don;t look at the layout, I've just do the working part first, I will now start working with the CSS layout of the page. But everything is there and working.

Please help me.

The other URL that will also be affected will be:

www.ernestfrostnlp.co.za

Thank you very much for your time. I am a fan of WROX!

Looks like Google picked up your site by now: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...a&aq=f&oq=&aqi=

You may want to look at this book: http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...470131470.html for more info on SEO and getting your site listed.

Cheers,

Imar
