Google can take a long time to index pages, you just need to be patient. If your sitemap follows the rules correctly, google will index it eventually.It took about a month for my pages to get indexed from the moment I created them.You can submit your sitemaps to http://www.google.com/webmasters/

Thanks for the advice - I think my sitemaps are fine and I HAVE already submitted them to google - it states that there are no errors BUT there is no site information at present.The funny thing is that 2 days after i made the site live it listed one of my pages in second space (given with 5 key words used in search term):THEN it dropped off the web???? confused the ###### out of me.I have also just registered for analytics - feelings.Thanks again.

Sometimes it happens in the first few days, because your page is indexed on some of their servers but not yet on all of them, it will be back eventually.They have a whole lot of information about this in their help section.http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/b...&topic=8524
