Search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing compile massive "indexes" of all the pages on the web. These indexes record all of the text on a web page, as well as images, titles, page layout, and other information. When you type a query into Google, it uses this index to return the most relevant answer. For more information you can read this detailed explanation from Google: How Google Search Works

Pointy submits your pages to search engines for indexing immediately. However, indexing the entire Internet is a massive task, and it can take some time for a new web page to make its way into Google's index. Until your page has been indexed, it will not appear in Google search results. So there will typically be a delay of several weeks from when your page has been created to when you will see it appear in search results. The timing of this is controlled by Google.
