Since you want to be found by google, perhaps google is the best source
of info. They have (free) info in their webmaster area.
Many questions answered, but this one below lets you submit your site to
be crawled.
btw - depending on your web code - their crawler can have issues if
you web pages dynamically created, and you don't take steps to
give the crawler info (how should a crawler categorize you if no
real info activated by the crawler...)

How Google works is a specialty area and is not an exact science. It's more

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?
