This article provides information on why your site may not be appearing where expected in global search engines.
The most likely reason that you cannot find your site is that it has a low ranking in the search results. This may be because your site is not optimized for the keywords you entered.
It is also possible that the search engine's "spider" has not yet visited your site and this is also adversely affecting the ranking and making it difficult to locate the site in the search results.
The easiest way to determine the status of your site in a search engine is to enter the full URL provided with your submission order. For example, enter www.your-domain-name.com in the search box of Google (www.google.com) or MSN (www.msn.com) and carefully watch the search results:
- If your site has not been indexed yet, it will not be displayed in the search results.
- If your site is indexed, but has not been crawled yet, you will see it in the search results, but without any Title or Description. This is a temporary state till the nearest scheduled crawling cycle of the search engine.
- If your site is indexed and crawled, it will show up in the search results with Title and Description.
