So Basically What are the Top reasons why your site is not in Google
How to know if my site is in Google ?

But if not you need to submit your website in Google.
Another way is put your site in “double quotes” and you website will come up.
Consider also you can use “info:” or “site:” (without quotes) operator to knows about your site or page-
e.g. info:www.ITinformers.com or site:www.ITinformers.com.
