    Have a little churn and burn test website I'm experimenting with. Its got about 10k auto generated spun pages. Reasonably readable. However the sitemap has been crawled about a week ago and pages are not showing up in the SERPs anywhere not even when I enter the full url or completely unique sentences that are not anywhere else on the the web.

    Odd thing is they're showing up with the site: search operator. I thought it might just be that the quality of the spin was too low so I wrote a page out manually with perfect English, got Google to crawl that and even that won't show in the SERPs.

    Anyone has anything like this before?

    Do website pages normally show up with site: way before they're actually returned in the SERPs?
