Hi there,

First off we need to make sure that you have submited your URL to
Google. The only way you can be sure of Google finding your website is
to use the form on this page:

At present your website is not indexed by Google. This can tested by
searching for long text phrases that appear within your website. Each
of these returns zero results:

"Aufbau und Betrieb von Unix-Plattformen und Client-Server"

"Johner IT Consulting"

Even the title of your homepage cannot be found:
"Johner ITC"

Don't worry about the keywords you have placed in the Meta tag of your
home page. It is commonly accepted that Google ignores them. What
Google looks at are the following:

- links pointing to your site
- words in the title
- words that appear on the page
- words in image ALT tags 
- words in the URL of your pages

It is slightly possible that Google has ignored your site, because the
frontpage contains no text other than links and the phrase "Last
Update: 12. Dezember 2002"

If you have submited your URL to Google, and waited 1-2 months, then
perhaps your site was down when the GoogleBot visited, or it could
just be a rare glitch on Google's part.

The solution is to submit (or re-submit) your site, and wait.

Best wishes,
