Thanks all, but what I'm not understanding is how Google has
referenced my first 3 trial sites. I have noticed something. On the
site I did by hand, I added links to other sites. The WordPress site
still has a link to wordpress.org and the Drupal site has links to the
site of the theme I used. On the unreferenced site, I cleared all the
external links. Could that be why?

Google can't know about the site if it doesn't know about it. Google will
eventually find it, but its better to give it a kick start by posting
non-spam links on related sites (like in signatures). Twitter is another
great place to post.

From there you need to do some SEO (search engine optimization) on the site
so Google can properly index and categorize your site. To be honest it
isn't too tough as I didn't do much for my uncle's site (charliesrepair.com
).

Publishing your URL would help some people find it and also help them tell

Subject: [WEB400] Finding my site with Google

Hi,

I wanted to get into the web and have now done 3 basic websites todate. One
with Wordpress, one with Drupal and one from scratch using php and mysql. I
can select text on each of the sites and google it no problem. Now, I want
to get more serious and I'm working on a small business site using Drupal.
I
didn't really care or need Google to reference my first 3 sites, but
obviously I do for this new one. So guess what, Google doesn't find it. Why
would it find the first 3 but not the last? I haven't knowingly done
anything to get noticed by Google.

Thanks
