When submitting a site to Google, how long does it take to get crawled? I submitted my site a week ago and keyword searches don't even list my page. Even searching "quoted text" or the company name fails to render a hit.

That's anybody's guess but I do remember a site taking > 14 days for me. I've heard it could take longer.
Have you looked at your "site log" under "User Agents"?
Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.google.com/bot.html) should show up.

The best way I've found to get the Google bot to visit is to work on getting links from other sites that are already listed. I've also always heard if you let him find you naturally then you will rank better in the results.

Getting crawled by Google can take a while, I think I waited 4-5 weeks before I got listed.
I've got a free
DNN Module that will create a Google SiteMap that can help you get listed, but again it can take a while4-5 weeks to get listed.
Take a look at Google SiteMap even if you don't submit a sitemap you can create an account and it will give you information about searches that return your pages etc.
A good query that you can use in Google to check if you are listed is site:www.bitethebullet.co.uk
into the search field.
When I do that, the URL shows up. There is no description with it though.... Does that mean I'm listed, but not crawled? None of my key words shows up, nor does searching the name of the company.
