Google - does ranking come after indexing?

    Hi all,

    Apologies if my question is stupid! I'm not very clued up on this subject :(

    Basically, I have just put a new blog together, just around 12 hours ago, and due to adding a link on a site that get's indexed quickly, it now appears on a site:xxxx.xxx Google search, meaning of course that it has been indexed.

    Due to how strong the keywords in the domain name are, I expect it rank high in a regular Google search, but right now it doesn't - does this mean it is going to rank as high as I hoped (without further work, of course) or does this part come along later?

    Hope that makes sense, and any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Keywords in the domain aren't as important as people think they are. Link popularity is what will make your site appear higher in the SERPs.

    Thanks, appreciate the reply.

    I agree with you that there is much more 'to life' than the domain name, however I have some sites that are on page 1/2 of the big G because of the words in their respective domain names and I have done ZERO SEO on them (mainly as I am unable to! :( ) so I have to say that the domain name definitely does count...

    Can you offer any advice regarding my actual question anyway please?

    Cheers.
