New sites not being indexed?
Is Google not indexing new sites right now?

I actually posted this question in another thread, but it was buried on the third page, so I'm not sure anyone really saw it, but I have a burning question:

I've been optimizing for several years and I've always been able to get a site at least in the Google index in 10 days or less. The latest site I am working with has never been indexed, and we're going on three weeks now. I can't even find evidence of any of Google's spiders coming through. I've even purchased a small AdWords campaign with the foolish notion that might lure the spiders in.
The site actually has quite a few links pointing to it, including a New York Times article and several sites with PR of 8 or higher. I just can't figure this one out.

The site is completely informational and not selling anything, so that may have something to do with it if Google is giving commercial sites more weight these days, as some seem to think.

Is anyone else having this problem, or is it just me?

I have also been lucky in the past with quick inclusions.

But the latest site has only just been included, though still not in the index proper.
Search for my domain; not to be found, but keywords find it.

This latest site 5 weeks for semi-inclusion!

Yes, it's really weird. There are actually 2 sites that have a PR of 8 and six with a PR of 5 or higher. The site was set up by big wigs with sites that have high PRs, and that's why I'm so nervous. The site is number one in it's most important keyword in MSN (thanks to Zeal) but I can't get Google to even look at it.

I have noticed the same thing. I have 3 sites with good incoming links that have yet to be indexed.

I know of two sites with diverse topics launched in late March with minimal content, and built up over the next month or so. One has been freshed every few days, had the cache updated many times, and has been #1 in some listings for most of the time.

The other site was badly listed very early on and has been ignored by freshbot since then. Google has not updated the cache, nor has it refreshed the listings, neither has it found any of the new pages, etc. It has totally ignored this other site, which is on a compltely different topic to the one doing well, and that was launched within days of it..
