For a while now I have been having issues with google indexing my site. For some reason it would'nt take over 33 pages from my xml sitemap: (images not allowed for new users...)

It has been the case for the past couple of months. Why does'nt Google index my entire site? it's only 37 pages!

Google doesn't always index everything contained on a website. It is only interested in relevant content and for some reason, it considers 4 pages on your site to be content it's not interested in.

You can create a Webmaster Tools account for your website. In this account you can see if there are crawl errors occurring on these pages, or if you have something in robots.txt telling Google to ignore them. There is even a diagnostic tool that lets you read the page as Google would view it and if that's successful, manually submit the page to Google for indexing (once again dependent on Google considering it to be content they want to index).
