You mean page rank? This comes later - it updates at a different time to getting indexed.

Oops yes page rank! My newbie status shows!
So basically I should sit back and wait then? How long might this take (or is that a bit like asking how long is a peice of string!)?

String theory seems to work well here ;-)
Fastest for us was with one site taking about 3 weeks to register very low rank...this gradually went up over time. I've waited as long as three months at times.

Also, you should read the (probably) most consulted thread on this site: A Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone [webmasterworld.com]. These things take time, but keep up the hard work and be patient, and you have a good chance of success.

Been reading the forums a while, just like to say how great a resource it is. BTW Brett, thanks for the 26 spep guide...
It's been a while i think since google last updated PageRank and backlinks. My site's been online and has contained about 4,000 words of content for about 4 months but is really taking its time to show a PR.
I have at least 20 backlinks that i know of, 7 of which have a PR4+
It should be time to update the PR soon I think.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, lazza.
Only thing I'd like to add to the previous replies is not to put too much emphasis on PageRank. It's just one factor (of 100+) that G uses in its algorithm, and there are loads and loads of search queries where sites with lower PR are listed above sites with higher PR.

Thanks for all the advice folks.
