    I'm baffled.

    I built a site dedicated to IrishPhotoshop, what, six months ago?

    It isn't in any search engine results, as far as I can tell.

    I submitted it to Google.

    I have links from other websites, that are receiving traffic, and being spidered.

    Not a dicky bird.

    Not a sniff from any spider, that I am aware of.

    Hmmmm....

    I have a site or two like that. For one reason or another Googlebot just ignores, despite numerous links from other sites. Sometimes adding new content and/or changing around the home page helps.

    Other stuff to check:

    Are all the links straight HTML, not funky javascript? Have you moved all the script and css code to external files?

    Try putting the google site search on your main page. That will get it spidered.

    Good Luck!

    TVEye, Ebudae,

    thanks for the responses.

    There is no java scripting, just straight html.
    CSS is not external, I know it's good html practice to do that, but does it make any difference to spiders? The content has been updated several times recently.

    Google SiteSearch is added....waiting to see what happens now

    Seems like I read somewhere that one aspect of being bot-friendly is to have a high ratio of text content to all the other stuff -- markup / script / css. So I believe it's always best to move as much stuff that's not pure text content off the page as possible.

    I'm very interested to know whether adding the Google SiteSearch works to get your site crawled... sounds like a great idea.

    Hiya

    One thing we could try is putting a link from the main site (which is spidered) back to your site until it gets picked up and spidered, this would be short term purely to get things moving, as soon as you get spidered we remove the link (remove the potential of leakage), drop me a mail if you think this might help.

    Cheers
