    Just build some links to it and make sure you have internal links pointing to it. It will get indexed. And yes I've had this happen to me before.

    Watch out for the "G Bounce".. Where your site is indexed, high.. Then falls off the map, then it starts working it's way up the SERPS as time goes on.

    CAPITALIZE NOW with a consistent strategy of hand crafted backlinks, backlinks to those backlinks, and put some junk traffic to the site.

    That tends to keep the "bounce" from dropping you so low that it takes forever to move up in the SERPS once the "bounce" happens.

    Make sure your site has a proper structure. It's a good idea to have all your internal pages linking back to your homepage.
    This kind of internal linking will help your homepage to rank higher in the SERP for your main keyword.
