google index - how long for a new domain to show up?

My site was submitted to google and yahoo about two weeks ago.
Yahoo has my site indexed but google still does not.
I have created a simple notepad sitemap for the site and entered the tracking information into all of my pages so i can use analytics.
All of that works but my site is still not indexed with google.
I have dynamic pages, but it is only a small amount of javascript for the header and footer of my site.

Please help.

there is not time frame rule, depends of Google's mood :). You surely need to have good enough patience with Google indexing.

I'd say get as many as possible related inbound links from old and established sites with at least some respected PR (5 or above). On that way your site will be a way too faster spidered, not by Gbot but from the others as well.

Submitting sites to search engines is in my opinion bad idea...

One of my site is not getting indexed in Google. It was registered on 1st June 2006 and well indexed in Yahoo and Msn. Googlebox is crawling everyday and taking atleast 50 pages per day.

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"...

For some idea of past use of your domain, you can search the "Wayback Machine" at [archive.org...] -- You can also look up whois records on various sites and see a bit of history.

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.

To the first post...
It is not about submitting a site to a search engine at all...

READ n LEARN more about some SEO basics according to Google.com

and maybe you might see some instant gratification from engines but then disappear as the SE's look for new content THAN prove that you are the best choice. Google's digging the deapest ;)

Going to bed now... Goodnight.

Thanks tedster,

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..
