How Did My Site Get Indexed? !
Posted 17 April 2009 - 03:41 AM
I see it listed as #1 for that keyword phrase. This is not about positioning in the SERPs, but about how the heck did my site get indexed?
I only published the site and have a brief message about the site is under construction on the index/home page. I NEVER listed the website anywhere! I have NO links to the website and have not made it public.
Do any of you have an idea on "How" Google found my site and indexed it? I wasn't expecting to see that site listed at all. I mean I understand if there were links or if I contacted Google to beg them to list my site, etc, LOL!, but I mentioned the site to no one.
P.S. "Sorry, can't list the URL as what I will be selling there is extremely niche stuff."

You buy a domain, the registrar creates DNS records, G! picks up on this and pays the new domain a visit.
G! just loves new content to get it's teeth into.
It doesn't happen all the time to every domain, but I've seen G! do it to one of my domains before, and there is no way on this earth it could have know about it from a link or an inclusion request.
I see no other way for G! to have know the domain exisited other than the registrar / DNS records.
Edit : And I don't do toolbars, taking up screen real estate, grrr!

@NASA: Just use a dual screen setup, plenty of room for toolbars then

No, not using any special toolbars.
In my other website projects, I didn't notice the sand box effect with my SERPs results, and this is another example of that. LOL!
Anyway, the replies helped and explains what may have happened.
