Learn About Google:

First you need to understand Google's point of view that their responsibility is to their users, not to website owners. It is a requirement on the webmaster to produce a website which is relevant. Google likes quality content websites. Google doesn't like sites loaded with banners, popups, or external links to bad neighborhoods (prescription drug, illegal content sites, gambling sites or spammers such as "fastclick").

To see if all your pages are indexed by Google
type this into the search bar:
allinurl: http://www.yourDomain.com

To verify your position in Google
you may wish to refer to: GoogleRankings.com
Enter your site name, and your search terms, and choose how many sites to check.

Resources from Google:

http://www.google.com/corporate/today.html  - Google Today (absolutely the best information you can read about the "how and why" of Google's results

http://www.google.com/webmasters/2.html  - My Web Pages Are Not Currently Listed (a good 'primer' on how and why Google works so well)

http://www.google.com/webmasters/facts.html  - Google Facts & Fiction (can you buy your way to a high ranking in Google?)

http://www.google.com/remove.html  - Remove Content from Google's Index (just in case you need to avoid the double content filter)

It is incumbent upon you, the webmaster or the website owner, to ensure your site meets these basics if you want your site listed. Webmasters who do follow the guidelines usually have no problem getting listed and showing up under the search terms they desire.
