Hi, Everybody,

This is mostly a Google issue...

If I search on "" (WITH the
"quotes"), I get "about 331" results.  This includes
links to that domain.

However, a search on gives
zero results.

And a search on also gives
zero results.

Interestingly, I have a link to the site appearing on
another site in the cache:

...But that doesn' show up in the "link:" query.

This has been going on for a few weeks.

That just shows the site has been indexed.

This result shows the number of inbound links (IBLs) to your site.

As expected, new site.

Do you have any good links to that site?

All I saw was low quality NG mirrors and search type pages, didn't
check extensively but none I saw had PR.

You registered the domain 11th June, so it's been up less than 2
months. In that sort of time frame I've had new sites get 50,000 pages
indexed and identical sites (same number of links to them) get a few
hundred pages indexed (even though there are thousands available,
longer term they are indexed though).

This is with PR4, PR5, PR6 and even PR7 links in the mix and generally
dozens to hundreds of links added right after the domain went live.
You have very low quality links that are not going to hold much
weight, medium term they will get the site spidered, could be tomorrow
could be next week, who knows. Don't expect to do well on NG mirror
links though, they won't take your site very far.

It's a new site, link: won't show anything until a backlink update,
that's normal. Also helps to have links :-)) since you can find even
when a update has occurred if you don't have many links none show with
a link search.

You've not got any decent links.

This has nothing to do with the sandbox problem new sites tend to
face, this is about getting the site indexed. No matter which sandbox
theory you read about none mention pages not getting indexed, you'll
experience the sandbox effect when your site is indexed. then you'll
find no matter what you do your site won't rank well for at least 6
months in Google, you'll get very easy SERPs only.
