Getting Indexed By Search Engines
When I first got into this game several years ago, I was told that I had to submit my site(s) to the search engines to get indexed. That turned out to be untrue. Google, Yahoo and Bing will automatically index your site, but it may take a few days to a week or two. It could even happen in 24 hours. So, just be patient.
The way to check if your site has been indexed is to go to Google's search box. Enter your URL in quotation marks, like this: "www.yourURL.com"
When you use the quotation marks, the search engine will look for that specific item and only that item. If you don't show up, you haven't been indexed. Wait.
NOTE: YOUR SITE MUST BE INDEXED BEFORE YOU CAN PUT GOOGLE ADS ON THE SITE.
If you rush to put Google AdSense ads on your site before you are indexed, you could get yourself banished to wherever the bad people go on the Internet. In other words, kiss that site goodbye.
