Storefront with Diff Domain, and Spiders

I am not sure where to start, but here it goes.

I am not completely new to web design, but getting into the search engines has been a challenge. I have a website where the storefront is actually hosted through another domain, activec. I did make a site map as well that links from my index.

I have a few concerns:
-The site has many product pages (.asp), around 5000. I know it takes awhile to be spidered and indexed. My concern is that because the storefront is on another domain, will this be a problem with the spiders?

-The amount of products are growing. Would it be better to build a storefront that follows right under my main domain so it will be spidered better.

-The stats are very confusing because of the differant domains. I do not think I am getting acurate stats. The site has been out for just over 2 months. The main url is indexed in most search engines, but not any other pages.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I hope I am just paranoid, and everything will be okay!

I created my first website in Nov 2003. Last week, I GOT RELEVANCE! on all my pages. What a rush! I don't know if it was the constant changes that put me in front of them, or the deep search by the robots, or because it takes just that long to get it done. Not only does my website get listed on the first pages when searched, the robots have picked up my adobe pdf documents deep inside my site. I never expected that when somebody typed in a search, they would go to one of those documents....anyway....seems to me my pdf documents are as deep as you describe some of your pages...and they were picked up in five months.

Congrats! I cannot wait until the day the product pages get indexed. I did my first website years ago, but it never took this long to get indexed. There have been so many changes through the years. I think it is easy to get paranoid reading post after post sometimes. I guess I start thinking something is wrong, and I am waiting for nothing when I should be fixing a problem. I believe the pages went out early January, so I bet I have awhile yet, but you never know!
