Being in googles database is next to worthless, as it does not mean people
will be able to find you.  If you have a site about vitamins, what good is
it to show up under www.myvitaminsite.com?  I stand by my guarantee that the
add URL form button is for show. Many sites I have worked on have never been
listed in google, yet they index them regularly. This does not mean anyone
will be able to find them.  Example:
Google does keep a comprehensive snapshot of the web, but if you have a
website that is an island with no bridges, it will remain so.
