As per subject, anyone can tell me how to check that my site is getting index/rank by search engine(e.g. google, yahoo)?

To see if you are indexed just search for your domain name. If you appear then you are indexed.

To check to see how you rank requires doing searches for terms you expect to be ranked for and then see if you appear. Of course, you may not rank well and thus not find your pages being listed. That just means your pages rank poorly. See this question for tools to help automate this process.

This can be refined a little, for Google at least. If you do a site search ie. site:example.com, results will be limited to only your domain, which also gives you a rough idea how much of it they're getting. A raw search for the domain name will just pull in any references to it, which is also perfectly useful, depending what you're looking for. – Su' Apr 21 '11 at 9:07
but for the newest web page that I have uploaded to the server, how can I check these specific page is getting index/rank? – Charles Yeung Apr 22 '11 at 5:17
See the link in my answer for tools that will help you do this – John Conde Apr 22 '11 at 15:57

Google Webmaster Tools allow you to see specifically what is being indexed on your site, when, and what the results are.
