First page to appear: Here's the Story

The first page to appear is not the site's home page.  Two days after making all pages "index,follow", one page was mentioned on ask.metafilter; this resulted in about 100 hits, and within 3 hours google had properly indexed it and included it in search results.  All the rest of the pages remain unindexed.

Google Results for index,follow first page to appear in SERP

And although there is a Cache button, there's nothing in the cache server: Google result - freshly indexed page not in cache

I believe this is an indication that google is paying quite a lot of attention to the traffic, because the link structure of the site internally I think would have supported also considering the home page important.  It will be interesting to see when the main page appears and replaces that sub-page in the SERP site query.
