Google say on their site:
"We add thousands of new sites to our index each time we crawl the Web, but
if you like, you may submit your URL as well. Submission is not necessary
and does not guarantee inclusion in our index. Given the large number of
sites submitting URLs, it's likely your pages will be found in an automatic
crawl before they make it into our index through the URL submission form. We
DO NOT add all submitted URLs to our index, and cannot predict when or if
they will appear.
Please visit our "Add URL" page to input your URLs. You can submit your site
as often as you like, but multiple submissions will not improve the
likelihood of your site being added or accelerate the process. We do not
penalize sites for 'over-submitting'. If you choose to submit your site,
only the top-level domain is necessary, as the spiders will follow your
internal links to all the rest of the pages.
The best way to ensure Google finds your site is for your page to be linked
from lots of pages on other sites. Google's robots jump from page to page on
the Web via hyperlinks, so the more sites that link to you, the more likely
it is that we'll find you quickly."

you don't need to submit a site to Google...there is no
point...there is a 6-8 week queue for inclusion...whereas
if you get an incoming link from a site already in the
database your site will be added a lot quicker
once the site is in you should NEVER resubmit unless it
has fallen out of the database
