    New sites just got a pagerank - but still very few indexed pages?

    Well a couple of my new sites (2-4 months old) just got a pagerank today, fairly low pageranks though,- one site with 1 and another with 2. But im just wondering about the pages indexed with google from the two sites.

    The site with a PR 2 only got one page indexed and google crawls this site atleast once a week.

    The other PR1 got 114 pages indexed and google crawls it several times a week.

    Its been like this for a very long time, so im just wondering if anymore pages will get indexed?

    Getting a PR as the case here, will that help google indexing more of the site?

    The toolbar showing PR today where it did not last week will do nothing for getting you indexed deeper or faster. Assuming there are no other issues with your site, more backlinks from different sites will impact this favorably.

    Other issues that I've seen keep Google from indexing pages (other then not enough backlinks) include:
    - duplicate or near duplicate content on many pages.
    - poor linking structure (pages with 1 or few links pointing to them on a low PR site.)
    - non-robot readable links (using javascript links or redirects)
    - VERY bad code. Googlebot can usually read a page that is coded poorly, but if it is bad enough, the spider will sometimes give up.

    If you have none of these issues, just make sure you have a site map linked from your home page (and better yet, from every page) and get lots of backlinks.
