  • Have you set the site up in the webmaster tools?  What does it report - is it blocked or are there any crawling issues?


    Assuming that it is not blocked and there are no crawling issues, I too find it odd that it doesn't turn up in Live searches.


    I searched on "web design new york", "new york web designer", "new york web designers" and even "hotdigital" "hotdigital.net" and www.hotdigital.net.  I couldn't find your website in the first 300 results returned for any of these terms.  Even with only one page indexed I would expect it to be in the results for "hotdigital" searches.


    Having said that, it strikes me that there is still some more work to do in optimizing it.  9 or 10 backlinks is all that Google and Live listed for your website and this is not "many".


    There is not a lot of content on the website, and many of the "natural" keywords one would expect - web design, web designers, etc - do not appear often, if at all on a number of pages.
