Evidently your & character is interfering with the processing, possibly because the technology used incorperates the & character to seperate different instructions in the server side coding.

Sorry, can't think of a better way to explain this ...

It's because Google hasn't indexed your page yet. If you enter the web address in, of course its going to bring it up. But if you happen to use the Google toolbar and have the PageRank indicator on there, you can tell if Google has indexed your page or not.

Now it doesn't mean it won't ever get on there, it just takes at most a couple weeks for the search bots to hit your site and index it.

It may just be bad luck - welcome to The Google Dance (http://www.evolt.org/article/The_Google_Dance/20/60101/index.html)

In my view there is only one rational response - don't worry about it.
