why google only interest in my default page?

I submitted a brand new website url to google about 10 days ago. It was not bad that google crawled my website 2 hours after that. However, in the past 10 days googlebot only crawled my default.aspx page and robot.txt file (I don't have this file on the server). And I found googlebot goes to my site in a very regular pattern: around eastern time 10pm everyday and it has no exception so far.

Here are my list:
--I have a sitemap link on the first page;
--There are 40 links on the first page and all of them are accessible
--All the following links on the first page works fine without any error and connection delay
--All of the links are dynamic url such as products.aspx?id=123 (only one parameter)
--I used text browser and sim spider to test my web pages.
--I don't have viewstate text in the page source
--The page size is about 40k (including some images)
--All of the contents are dynamiclly from asp.net program
--All contents are visitor-oriented
--keyword1-keyword2.net domain name

What staffs I missed? how can I improve the pages attract googlebot's interest? Should I submit some sublevel links? Any suggestion is appreciated!

First of all 10 days isn't really enough. Give it time to deep crawl. If a month has passed, then you can start to worry.

the links are dynamic url such as products.aspx?id=123

That might be a problem, using id as the paremeter could cause Google to think it's a session ID. Perhaps give it another name.

As the previous poster mentioned, 10 days really isn't enough time to start worrying.

Also, just because you submitted your site to Google doesn't mean it's going to crawl every page or list you. I'd recommend working on getting a lot of incoming links, and wait a few more weeks before getting concerned with google.

Thank you guys. The site currently listed on google if I searched allinurl: mydomainname. Result: 1 of 1. It was listed on the third day after I submitted it. Probally I need to get more incoming links.

I have changed the URL from ID to PID or ProductedID.

I will be in patience to watch it.

You may want to consider using an ISAPI.dll or rewriting your URLs (really, those are the same thing)... and it's good that you have 40 links on home page...

Try to have a good 10 - 15 on every other page too... I've found some neat new ways to get Google to gobble up pages even faster than before...

I just tested a few over the last few days and they worked great... drop downs that include source as UL LI, 90% CSS, just 10% Javascript, but no js in the body...working very nicely indeed.

Good news! I have seen the first deep crawl yesterday!
