Did you remember to hit publish? Once you've published your lens you can view it in your lens dashboard ... hit view and look at the web address make sure its the same one you have.

I used to offer lens building services so I've built a few ;)

In my experience some lenses get indexed very quickly with just pinging, others it takes bookmarks and backlinks - depends on your keywords and content I think.

My checklist for lens promotion is:
* pingoat.com
* submit feed to feedage.com
* digg
* stumbleupon
* Delicious
* use all my tags (squidootagbuddy.info makes it much EASIER!)

HTH,
Heidi
P.S. Your lens looks great, I just rated you - that never hurts either ;)

The green check mark means that your lens has been "approved" by Squidoo and is being promoted within the Squidoo website, meaning if someone types in your tags your lens gets displayed (depending on your ranking) It also means that your links have gone from "no follow" to "do follow". Congrats on that!

If you've done everything on my checklist you should see your lens listed in Google soon, my guess would be in the next 24-48 hours.

Note: Make sure you check your backlinks from your articles to see that they are coded correctly and that you are using your keyword as your anchor text. Though to be honest, I've never had to use links from articles to get any of my lenses indexed. Though to be honest, I've never needed an article back link to get a lens indexed.

Good Luck,
Heidi
