About 4 weeks ago I finished the design of the front end of my magento website and opened it to 'the public'. Up until that point i had been selling my items only on eBay via the M2E pro plugin for magento.
The problem is that none of my items are appearing anywhere in googles search results. I submitted a sitemap about 2 weeks ago and my robots.txt file is set to allow everything.
For example, here is a link to one of the items on my website:
When i copy and paste the entire title of the above item into google it does not appear anywhere in the search results:
This basically means my website is invisible. How long does it take for my item pages to show on google?
Is there anything which might be preventing my item pages from displaying on google search results?
About 4 weeks ago i turned on 'enable server rewrites' in magento which as i understand creates SEO friendly URL's. However i now notice that the links appearing on google to the item pages are broken. See the link below:
@DavroidListing of website in search engines depends on various factor and requires a lot of effort. I am seeing search engines are crawling your website and your website is listed as well.
Search the below string in Google search engines and you'll see 21,400 URL are listed.
You need to hire a good agency to perform SEO of your website. With the efforts of couple of months your website may start appearing the way you want for some of the keywords.

Also I would say there is no real reason for your shop to be listed. Why yours or not another one?
Do you add any value compared to other more established shops?
SEO is a marathon not a sprint. A good top10 Position could take you 6 to 12 month of work
