WordPress Blog not showing up on Google search results (4 posts)

    I have a wordpress blog hosted here: http://digital-horizon.net
    I've submitted the website + xml sitemap to google.
    I'm using WordPress SEO plugin, tags, Open Graph meta tags, breadcrumbs, optimized titles, categories, W3 Total cache, etc to make the blog search engine friendly.
    Google Webmaster tools shows a bunch of URLs submitted, but when I search for the post title, nothing shows up. Even searching the exact title of the blog fails in bringing up the website. I've searched for this issue but apparently not a lot of people have this problem.
    84 not found errors on Webmaster tools
    The SEO plugin is by Youst and it pings google as I submit a post so I don't have to submit URLs separately or wait until google crawls again.
    But the posts are still not showing up.
    The blog has been submitted to Google for about 3 weeks and Google webmaster tools hasn't even updated the website preview yet.

    Patience; Google takes its own time to index and rank.

    You are indexed: http://www.google.com/search?q=site:http://digital-horizon.net/

    Thanks for the replies.
    I know that google is a bit slow in indexing sites, but it's been almost a month after I indexed the site and the preview image that is displayed next to the website is not updated yet. (regardless of the posts)
    Can you give me an estimate of how much I should wait for the website to be fully crawled?

    Ask google; it's not a WordPress issue: http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/webmasters
