For several days I've had content-relevant Google AdSense ads displaying
on my web pages. But Google returns nothing for searches that match one
or another of my pages. I understand that when you submit a URL for
indexing there's no telling how long it will take before they get to it,
but the fact that the AdSense is working means that they've done it
already, so why are the ignoring it for searches?
Being a part of the Google advertising programme does not warrant indexing
and good ranking for your pages (arguable though). Pages are scanned for
patterns in order for ads to be determined 'off-line' and delivered upon
demand. However, would Google just store information which is a pairing
between page (URL) and ads, or would it also cache the page and its en-
tirety and add it to the search results index? The latter could lead to
search engine poisoning because AdSense is often susceptible to use by
spammers (yet Google review sites before acceptance).
Either way, as my answer is so poorly-constructed,
Not at all, I followed you this far. :-) Thanks.

that having contextual ads is /one/ thing. Scoring high in Google or even
getting pages to show up is an entirely different matter.
I wasn't expecting any particular ranking, just inclusion.
