    Hi everyone, I've made 10+ pages on my new website, I have built 4 backlinks to my homepage url yesterday, and my website homepage got indexed a few hours later, but the other pages hasn't got indexed yet, is this normal?

    Does google only index the homepage at first and it will index the other pages later on?

    Or I should build backlinks to other pages to get them indexed?

    Waiting for your valued opinions, thanks.

    Yes that is normal. Build backlinks to the interior pages also. Do you have an internal linking structure set up so the GBot follows though to all pages and loops back to the homepage?

    Sitemap submitted and robot.txt installed?

    No, I don't have an internal linking structure nor robot.txt installed. Will google bot crawl all the pages by having an internal linking structure set up?

    And thank you for the tips, I gonna set them up anyway.

    Looks like robot.txt is something for the spider to get information about your site...I'm not sure...

    As of today, my new site (over 100 pages) has 11 sites indexed, and the index.htm(homepage for me) is NOT indexed :/

    One of my latest sites 2 days old has over 100 pages indexed. How did I do That ???

    1. Build a site map and submit through Google webmaster Tools
    2. Make sure your site is registered with webnaster tools
    3. Add a few back-links Like Digg or some other big popular site.
    4. If you dont know what a sitemap or Webmaster tools are Use Google to find out.

    Thanks for the tips,I kind of have done something similar, but I had only built links to homepage... Did you add a few back-links to all those 100 pages?
