When was the site launched? It will take some time to the Search Engines to index the website.

Beyond the sitemap...

Do you have any inbound links from other sites that are in the Google index? If not, you need to get them. And these need to be decent quality links from good sites... not link drops on blogs.

I have a brand new site, 1 week old, and have three links...

- PR0 (two clicks away from a PR6 homepage)
- PR7 blog homepage (within a blog post editorial)
- PR6 blog (blogroll link)

and have about 5 out of 50 pages ranked in Google so far. Is that normal?

Welcome to the forums, elbyg. For a 1-week old site, that's a good start, especially if those links were not due to your own efforts.

Well, I don't have anything positive to say about submition of sitemaps...

I had pages from two different sites dropping out of the index (at the same time I noticed a huge decrease in traffic), that was the situation after submitting sitemaps in Webmaster Tools.

The one of my two sites where (at the time) just about 6 months old and had a good, increasing traffic, until I decided to submit a sitemap in Webmaster Tools. After submitting the sitemap, pages began to drop out of the index and traffic decreased by 50-60 percent.

Within a week after removing the sitemap from Webmaster Tools, traffic slowly came back. Within 2-3 weeks the dropped out pages began to show up in the index again. I didn't made any radical changes to the website at that time, so I'm pretty sure that it was the sitemap submition that had caused the problems.

Today, both sites are doing very well -- without having any sitemaps submitted, of course ;)

Thanks. I just don't get why G isn't crawling all of my pages even though I have a PR7 (non paid link) to an inner page

elbyg > You've mentioned that your site is brand new (1 week) and also that it already have a PR 6/PR 7?

Is it a brand new domain (and therefore where you the first person who ever registered it)?

Or is it an old domain you've inherited from someone else?

It is a brand new domain, nobody has had it before. I have in fact had 4 links...

the first was a PR5 homepage
second was a PR0 page (two clicks from a PR6)
third was a PR6 blogroll
fourth was a PR7 homepage

all natural links.

Are you sure that googlebot isn't crawling? Or is the issue rather that the pages are crawled but not yet in the index? There are two seperate steps involved.

At any rate, note this thread: Googlebot crawling down 75% across multiple sites [webmasterworld.com]. During the past month, it seems that Google's been busy using it's computing power in other areas. I just goes in cycles.
