For starters. Link to your site/page from other pages already included within google.

For example, Google includes this forum and this page within their index. So if you add a signature link to your profile here there will be a link for googlebot to crawl and thus include your page. The more links from other (quality) pages included within google the more frequent they will visit your pages to include them.

Also, go to Google's Webmaster tools and submit a sitemap of your site.

XML Sitemaps for Live.com will help some as well on getting a sitemap generated for your website.

Google, Yahoo, Live.com and other search engines will look at your robots.txt for your XML sitemap.

And getting a few people to link back to your website will help. Some directories charge a few dollars and some people will charge a few dollars to enter your URL into a few hundred. They might be worth it but chances are - probably not. (I mean, the users might not enter your information and then you waste time checking.) Consider adding your URL to a few directories as well.

Following Logan's suggestion you should have your website indexed in less than 2 weeks and sometimes as little as a day.

Although with Google there are no guarantees

It says "last downloaded by google mar 5" in my sitemap section. How's this for a sitemap http://atomicfueltech.com/sitemap.xml ? Now when I search my site in google I get a link to a forum post I made about it, and a classified post I made.

Brock - if you can add a blog to it, they seem to get searched and indexed quite quickly!

Brock, take some time to read about search engine optimization also. Although your site will be included withing google shortly I looked through some of your pages and it is unlikely it will rank for any/many searches. You need to provide more information on your site along with including related keywords for important attributes such as the title tags, heading, navigation links, etc.

Brock, if I knew a little bit more about your business I could offer some suggestions. There are new ways to get your business listed, less traditional methods - we've found pretty effective methods to get businesses listed.

I don't mean to push my site, but we've got a few interesting case studies coming up. Where we talk about local business owners who were able to literally bend search engines to their own benefit. There was even one business owner who didn't even have a website!

you can pm if you'd like to give me some more specifics about your business and what you're trying to do.
