Hi.
I built a new site and loaded the google analytics tags. I also generated a sitemap and loaded it on my site's root directory. I then registered the sitemap in google but google has not indexed my site?

I have done all of this more than 5 days ago, when will Google index my site?

Thank you

I would bet you need some backlinks :) Try some popular bookmarking / news engines for some quick links to get you in.

You need just a few external links to enter in G index.

Have some patience. It is only 5 days. And obviously getting a link or two from friends will help.

Welcome to the forums, Sarelj. A new site has several challenges to face, one of which we used to commonly call the "Sandbox". I'd suggest you do some reading in our Hot Topics area [webmasterworld.com], which is always pinned to the top of this forum's index page. In particular, check out these threads:

Filters exist - the Sandbox doesn't. How to build Trust [webmasterworld.com]

...and for a little later on, read
Good Early Rankings - but they disappear [webmasterworld.com]

Also, check out this classic post:
Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone [webmasterworld.com]

There are three separate steps you want to be aware of, and they happen in this order: Spidering, Indexing, and Ranking.

Hi,

It will take few days to indexed the site, max of 8 days. But don't forget to submit the url to Google search engine and update the google webmaster tool daily. Important thing that create the robots.txt and placed in the root level of the directory.

As 5ubliminal mentioned above, the key to getting into the Google index and STAYING in the index is backlinks from other domains. There is no need to submit your urls to Google - I haven't done that for many, many years. And even if you do submit and googlebot spiders your domain, the urls still might not get into the index, or they can easily be dropped.

Similar advice goes for using Google Analytics, or a Google XML sitemap, or a Webmaster Tools account. These tools do have their uses, but they are not the key to getting into the Google index and staying in the index.

You can find out if Google is spidering your site by looking at your server logs. You can find out what urls Google has indexed by using the site: operator - so assuming your domain is example.com, you would search on site:example.com

i think Google Analytics is used for Generating the report for visitors and traffic details from were we are getting and through which keywords. Google Analytics is not used for indexing purpose but as tedster mention about Google XMl Sitemap and webmaster tool is one way and Creating the blog in google is helpful for indexing.

...and Creating the blog in google is helpful for indexing.

I don't think a link from a new blogspot blog is a good way to launch a new site. I'd try to start a site off with the best quality link I could find.
