Pages must be simple in design. Simple HTML, non-commerical sites are preferred.
Pages should not use much scripts/css for cosmetic effect. Some might squeak through.
Don't use ads that are intrusive (such as ads that appear overtop of content).
Don't submit a page which serves primarily as a portal to other bloated websites.
If you submit a blog, submit a few of your articles, not your main feed.
If your page does not contain any text or uses frames, ensure a meta description tag is added.
Only the page you submit will be crawled.

Barring technical issues, if you are puzzled why a site wasn't indexed, reread the above guide.
Angelfire and Tripod pages are no longer grandfathered (ads are too intrusive).
