Hi Jad, This isn’t an instant fix for getting your site in Google. There’s
a lot more involved in terms of getting your blog ranked (highly) in
google. I recommend you check your Google Webmaster Tools account and make
sure your sitemap has been accepted and crawled. Also check to see if
there’s any actions that need taking. Webmaster Tools is very good at
pointing these out. If that’s all clear, then it’s just a case of make your
content as good and google will find you 🙂
