I have never submitted by sites to google per se but they always end up in the results set within a month or 2 (all organic, not PPC).  Is it possible to see your sites?  Chances are you aren't feeding the google spider(s) with the right food, which boils down to your sites not showing up for any of the following reasons:

1) Non-semantic markup (a big one amongst us naija developers is using P and STRONG tags for page headers as opposed to H1, H2, H3, etc tags)

2) No page titles

3) Excessive use of tables

4) Markup that doesn't validate

5) No site map

6) You haven't registered your sites with google sitemaps

7) You don't have an xml version of your sitemap registered with google webmasters.

8 ) You just uploaded your site - Google won't find your site in 24 hours or even 96.  I once did a site that took 6 months to show up on google  grin

9) No meta tags or not enough keywords in your metatags. Also lack of a meta description.

These are just a few.  Again, post your URLs.   I won't go through every single instance but I will help point you, in addition to what you have above, in the right direction.

Is your site entirely flash based? if yes , this might be the cause.
Or you might just have to wait longer. Some of the sites I hosted took a little over a month before coming out in google.

Hi,

There are several reasons why your website does not show up on Google. To help you analyze your website FREE, I'll need the web address. No need to keeep guessing.

Visit my site @ www.paramountwebmasters.com or email me @ info@paramountwebmasters.com

The fact that your website is in flash or you recently submitted to Google does not mean your website has not been indexed by Google or the main reason why you can't find your website.

Regards

O ga o!! everyone seems to be out to make a few bucks!!

Anyways my brother, its possible to get your site indexed in google in 24hrs! but 48 is a bit more realistic if you follow the steps below:

1. Make sure that what you are searching for such as the name of the company is in your title tag and in the body of your site.
2. Google spiders need a channel to get to your site through so it would be a good idea to put links on sites that get frequent google visits such as blogs and news sites. Just a few sensible comments might do.
3. Tag your site on social bookmarking sites such as delicious and blink.
4. As other people have pointed out, submit a sitemap to google using google webmaster tools and ping it. The google webmaster tools interface is pretty self explanatory.
5. Repeat steps 2 and 3 till you get results.
6. You dont need to submit your site to google.

Hope this helps,
