Submitting sites to search engines is in my opinion bad idea...
First week itself I submitted the sitemap and this site is with enough inbound links.
Is there anyway to find out the past history of the domain? when i searched for the domain name i found one entry in an expired domains list. Also my main page shows page rank 4. Is past history hurting my site? if that is the case is there any solution?
Index page was not available when googlebot visited the site first day. Immediately after pointing the dns googlebot visited the site but index page was not ready by that time. Immediately i corrected the problem. For Few days sitemap was showing this error and later corrected it.
In Sitemap no errors, no crawling problems. but gives a message like this....
"No pages from your site are currently included in Google's index"...
But most of all, given the challenges you've described going through at the beginning, and the fact that your domain "was registered on 1st June 2006" -- well, it's still a bit eary in the Google game. They do like to test out new sites a bit more intensively than the other major engines.
Since Sitemaps is not showing you any problems, if you still become convinced that some past history is affecting your domain now under your new ownership, then you can file a re-inclusion request with Google explaining your suspicions in detail.
However, as I said above, it's still just a bit early. I wouldn't be srprised if they tell you there's no past history probem affecting you today -- especially since you are registered for Sitemaps.

Going to bed now... Goodnight.
Even i was thinking in that way but on 26th July i registed another domain and followed the same steps.. google and msn indexed all pages within a week (yahoo indexed the main page)..
Thats why i doubt previous history.. But when i search for previous history there is not even a single page linking to this domain. only i can see an entry in a list of expired domains on 23/12/2005. If it was expired on this date atleast i should be able to find one link pointing to this domain.. right? I dont think search engines forget so quickly.. I think only the domain was in existence..
First site is a php site. since i had this problem this time i decided to try with pure html.. thats the only difference between these two sites.
Anyway i will wait for some more time..
