Spidered But Not Indexed

It takes time from spidering to be added to the database. Do you have any links pointing to your site?

Are you sure you're not indexed but just not showing up for your keyword phrases yet? Try a search over on Google like site:www.YourDomain.com and see how many pages show up.
That'll tell you how many pages are actually in the index. Getting them to rank well for your keyword phrases is another story altogether.

www.domain.com and domain.com are seen by SEs as separate pages when in fact they both go to the same page.
The first thing I think you need to use a 301 redirect to direct domain.com to www.domain.com.
You may have some other problems, but right now I think that may be your biggest one.
SEs usually choose one and drop the other. Looks like Google is picking domain.com.
My guess is all you incoming links point to www.domain.com
<added> Just checked and your on a windows server. So you will need some advice about the redirect from someone who knows about windows servers. The procedure is different. But the need is the same as if you were on an Apache server. You need to redirect.

If it's pretty new that might explain a lot of it.

Chris knows more about IIS than anybody I know. Read the threads he referred to. Then if you have additional questions please ask here. He will help.
Randy asked about the age of the site. That could be part of the problem but since Google is the only SE that is having problems I'm not sure that the age of the site is really the problem. Randy is a lot more knowledgeable than I am and that could be a possibility.
Randy me if I'm wrong but I think Katie needs to know why age of the site could be a factor in the problem.
Katie, as I mentioned earlier SEs see domain.com and www.domain.com as separate pages or duplicate content. Normally they will select one and drop the other. No problem unless they select the one that you don't want and based on your original post I would say Google has selected domain.com or is in the process of selecting domain.com. You said you had back links. My guess is those back links point to www.domain.com. Seems like other SEs have sorted it out correctly, but you need the redirects so Google can get it sorted out.
I would add that if you have any links on your site that are index.htm or whatever you need to change those to http:www.domain.com. Index.htm is a 3rd page.
me if I'm wrong. If I am then someone needs to explain a little better. and we will all learn.
Don't dispair. There are always solutions to problems. Some take a little longer than others.

Now you are saying this:
I guess I'm just confused from reading your 2 statements. In my mind they contradict each other. Based on your second statement what is the problem you are trying to explain and ask about.
Hope you have a great week end. At least what's left of it.

Google shows no backlinks. Yahoo! shows none that aren't also part of your site. MSN shows a few off-site links, but some of those also contain a SessionID in the URL. That alone is going to keep the other bots away in my experience.
You don't have enough quality backlinks yet to get Google's attention, even assuming they know about the ones that MSN show. Check out the pinned thread in the [url=http://www.highrankings.com/forum/index.php?showforum=21]Submitting to Directories[/url] area and submit to those which make sense for your site. That will get Googlebot interested.
