I've noticed that both ask and inktomi (which powers hotbot) are very slow at picking up new sites. I suspect it's because they want to see if you'll pay for inclusion. On one site my patience broke down after 6 months and I paid. Otherwise expect to wait 8 - 10 months after you get your directory listings.
