I created two websites this past weekend on brand new domains, and I used some of the backlink sources from Angela Edward's fantastic WSO to nudge along the indexing process (I did about 10 high PR backlinks per site). I'm coming up on a week now that the sites have been completed and they've yet to show up in Google when I do a search for the URL.
I know it's too early to be concerned but I'm just excited and anxious to get these sites indexed, now that I've finally broken out of the "information addiction" phase! :-) Any insights on how long this process usually takes? As I mentioned, these are new domains, and I'm using self-hosted Wordpress with the All-In-One SEO add on and a highly optimized template.
