Hello partha700, and welcome to the forums.

How long have the other 5 pages been on your server?

Hi partha700, welcome to WW!

Some other things to consider:

Do you have any good links to your site from other sites? Google is much more likely to crawl and index your pages if you have good inbound links.

Have you created a webmaster tools account and submitted a sitemap? Is that what you mean by "submitted my site to google?"

Are the links leading to your other pages from your homepage plain HTML links, or do they use javascript or some other method to link? Plain HTML links are very likely to be crawled. Other types of links may or may not be crawled depending on the details.

Is there anything blocking the other pages from being indexed? e.g. robots.txt, meta noindex tag, problems with the URLs of the pages, etc.

If you've checked on these things, you may just have to wait. Sometimes it takes a long time to get into the index, especially with a new site.

These things can take time.

Try uploading an XML sitemap to give Google a quick poke in the right direction.

If you want to be sure that Google has at least spidered those pages then try Tweeting about your new content and include a link to one of your new pages.

Submit a sitemap and try to build some links (probably some of that directories has not been spidered yet).

If I understand the original post correctly, there are only 5 pages in addition to the home page on the site. Assuming this is the case, an XML sitemap really isn't going to help.

partha, are the page titles (in the head section of each page) different from each other? If titles of pages on a site are the same, Google may not index the pages or show them in the serps.

Also, is your content unique... ie, not a duplicate of other pages on the web?

There have also some copied content along with original content.

The titles of each are not same. its dedicated & related to content in each pages.

However, I think I have to tweeting to check page indexing & to remove duplicate content first

Just wait. Two weeks is a very short time. Build more content.

Twitter's effect is not strictly backlinks in any traditional way - but there is still a ranking effect. See this thread: Google Confirms - Social Media Signals Are Used in Some Search Results [webmasterworld.com]
