Is there a way to get products created with Lulu to show up in a browser search?
I created a calendar, if I type "2012 Akbash calendar" in a browser search field (ie. Google), nothing... nothing from Lul anyway. Cafepress Akbash calendars show up in a search result.
Am I missing something? I have all the appropriate tags and keywords set up. Not a great thing for a not-for-profit fundraiser.
Thanks in advance for any tips/suggestions/ideas.

This then? Akbash Dogs International 2012 Calendar
It can take a while to appear on this new Spotlight set-up. I put 2 new things up today and one a few days ago and they have yet to appear!
You are aware that you need to advertise that it is actually here to buy? Calendars cannot have Lulu ISBNs or Dist Packs can they? So that means you will have to do all the marketing of it yourself, or no one will know it is even here to search for.
In fact even if it did get on the Amazon etc, you would still have to tell people it is there.

I know it appears using the search within the Lulu site. That works great.
It is you open a browser like Google, type in something like "2012 Akbash calendar" in the search field.
Get get results from Cafepress but notmy item created with Lulu does not come up as a search result.
Maybe I am not explaining myself well LOL. I am most certainly not expecting it to show up on Amazon. But I thought if someone was searching for a calendar on Akbash Dogs, it would pop up as a search result on a search engine, like Google, Yahoo, Foxfire or meta searchers like Dogpile or whatever it is that one uses.

Well for a start it is called this >> Akbash Dogs International 2012 Calendar, not what you keep calling it in your postings. I small point but possibly an important one. But indeed I cannot find it via a websearch. Are you sure your Spotlight is set to General?
I have found this though (just by using the name of the 'group') >> http://www.akbashdogsinternational.com/node/77 but there is no obvious mention of your calender on there. Is that the right place? If it is then surely you should be selling the calendar via an advert/link from that site?
