It has been over 12 weeks and my site is still not listed. Why?

Submission to a search engine is not enough on its own. All this does is alert the search engine to your site's existence. How well your site is ranked depends entirely on the content of your page. We highly recommend running and optimizing our tools on your site to provide the relevant information required for effective search engine placement. Without relevant text content on your page, it is highly unlikely that it will be listed, no matter how often it is submitted.

It is up to the search engines to decide when and how they choose to rank your site. The more information your site provides to the search engines the better it will rank and the better chance it will have to be listed.
