    Is this a new site? Maybe google hasn't found it yet. My toolbar says your site is unranked by google.

    site:www.x.com should display all pages of your site that are indexed in google, where site: www.x.com should be the same as doing www.x.com on it's own, which would show all mentions of this text on web pages

    The "site:" command (and any other search command) works only if you do not add a space after the ":", otherwise you transform it in a simple search for the word "site" and for the text "www.sitename.com".
