Presently only the front page (an intro page with just text links and not much content) is indexed in Google. But I'd like to know when will Google start indexing the rest of the website? I've made sure that the pages validate as HTML 4.01 Transitional or XHTML 1.0 Transitional (asside from a flash object which I have at the bottom of the code).
Make it easy for the spider/crawler to get to all your pages and create many side doors for the spider/crawler to come in through.
Also your links are important. Spiders like common href links the best, if you use dynamic links created with special characters, you might make problems for the spider.
Patience is the key.
<added> Probably pure coincidence, but I had this new site linked from a few of my existing, well ranked, sites - but only to the index page. I then changed those links to point to the site map page. Next day, the deep crawl happened. </added>
