Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I read on Google's page that sometimes their spider ignores sites with what they call "dynamically generated" pages for various reasons. (The full explanation is here: [google.com...] ) The RSS feed is part of my main page, but I've removed it and try to see if Google will FINALLY crawl my site already.

My site is made using Mambo - a CMS that uses php and mysql to create a dynamic site. I use mod-rewrite to change to SEF urls.
On my home page I have four flavors of RSS and these are not SEF urls. Google has no problem indexing my site.
For the last two weeks, Google has been pretty busy with the Bourbon update. They may be holding off on spidering new sites. You might want to wait another week and see if the bot comes around.
despite the fact that I have some incoming links from high-ranking sites, and a ton of links from a REALLY high-ranking site.
Just curious how a site that has only been online for 3 weeks already has a ton of links from a REALLY high-ranking site. What kind of really high ranking site creates tons of links to new sites?
:( I want a really high ranking site to put a ton of links to my site. Then again, who doesn't.
>>want to get listed in google right away?
I read about this, but there seems to be a lot of people warning against it. That, and the whole thing seems a bit complicated to a non-tech savvy person like me. Is it? If I don't get indexed by the end of this month, I might give it a try.

I havn't used it myself but from what I see in the threads about it, it causes a re-index, can be very good for dynamic sites who are having trouble getting pages listed quickly.
Basically you are sending google a list of URL's that you want in the index - a sitemap.
It's in .xml format and there are parameters you can manually set for each URL (by editing the xml file)
There is also a 'sitemap generator' that you can use on your site - it will spit out a sitemap.xml file for you.
There is also an 'easy sitemap' (an easy button).
Just follow the instructions provided by google, the whole idea of it is to 'make it easier'. That's about the extent of my knowledge on it.
Their Help and FAW sections tell you how to make the sitemap AND that submitting here will in no way effect your rankings or PR.
