    Hey

    I have a site which I find on the page #1 on google (not a competitive keyword). But in Google Webmaster Tools it reports that 0 pages on the site is indexed.

    So from this I conclude that being indexed have nothing to do with getting listed on SERP, right? ( I'm often wrong ;) )

    Who told to you the data in google webmaster is accurate and realtime?
    why not directly type "site:yoursite" in google?
    If your site was noindexed, how could your site appears in google?
    Use common sense.

    appearing on SERP without getting indexed is also possible.This can be seen on most news sites where the page has just been spidered but not yet indexed - it can rank of the SERP too.

    Google webmaster just a little bit slower. You might see it for another weeks.
