i was told that command site: can be used to check if google has indexed a site.llet's say I have a site name www.mysite.com . as i type site:www.mysite.com in google, this is what i see:
Now i am confused, why there is no description shown? has google indexed or spidered my site? I've done basic and reasonable SEO on my site, i.e. meta tag, keyword in title/headline/first paragraph, description.. etc. What should i do to let google pick up my meta tag?
Thanks in advance.

Using site:www.mysite.com is one of the web search tools of Google. The detailed description of these can be found
here.It helps to search within the specifed site alone. There are many ways in which you can find out if your site is indexed. You can type www.mysite.com in the search box. If it is indexed your home page title or at least your url www.mysite.com will be displayed as heading. As you have said only www.mysite.com alone comes up, it indicates that your site is just been indexed or can say partially indexed. It occurs when your site is new. It will take a few weeks before Google indexes all your pages.
Hope this helps. Welcome to HR Forum!

Well it's a possibility.

Its not necessary that you need to enter keywords in the search box. A ranked and indexed site will show a description along with the title even without any keyword. You can try this with a newly launched site. It would show just the url. But even without the description it means that Google has recognized your site. You would certainly get the description and other pages of your site in a few weeks.

Google and many other SEs now ignore meta tags as they too often contain spammed content that is not relevant to the page ....

Google will show different descriptions or "snippets" of text depending on how you found the page in the engine.
Because you found it only by looking for the site with the site command, there is no reason for them to put a description.
When you find it by a keyword search, you'll see a snippet with your keywords or your meta keyword tag if it has the exact keyword phrase being searched upon.
Hope this helps!

This indicates that Google has indexed the URL of the page, but has not yet indexed the content of that page. Googlebot may or may not have crawled the site yet - check your log files to see.
Assuming the page has reasonable content and presents no barriers to spiders, it should be indexed within the next few weeks.

my site is a new site which is about a month old, 90+ pages. Basic SEO is done on all pages. No tricks are used. Most pages are useful informaitons, including tips, conversion table, reviews, etc .How can I make google to spider my contents faster?
Of course i do reciprocal linking with other websites. But requesting links(manually) from other webmaster can be a tedious and painful task. also i m waiting to be listed in main directory.
Any other way that helps?

The more links pointing to your site, the more important they will feel it is, and the more often (and deep) they will spider it.
