What I have learned after a long period of trial and errors in Search Engine promotion is that you should be patient. It takes long to get listed and much longer to get good rankings.
In the meantime you should not cross your fingers and pray, but you have to work very hard:
- Work on your content. Sites full of good quality content do well
- Increase your link popularity. Work out some deals with good sites that operate in your field and exchange links
- Improve your skills. Participate in webmaster message boards, learn from your fellow web developers... don't try to reinvent the wheel.

Whatever you do never try to spam or fool the engines. It might work for a few weeks but in the long term you are very likely to get banned and have to start right from the beginning.

And be optimistic!
