Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I launched my site 3 weeks ago with about 12 links to other related websites. I just did a search in Google for my domain name (without the www or the .com part) and 3 results showed up. The results are links from 3 of the sites I have reciprocal links with.
My question is this: is this a good sign that Google knows about me and I can expect to be listed in the next update?
By the way, I get NO results if I type my domain name in with the www and .com
shady has it right, that is a good sign. The best thing you can do know is get listed in the major directories (ODP & Yahoo), and get links from other sites.
