If you don't see any events or products listed on your site, and your services are running, and apparently configured well, there is another thing to check.
go to you IndexServiceProtected folder, right-click, hit properties, and Advanced.
Make sure that "Allow files in this folder to have contents indexed in addition to file properties." is checked.
If you had deleted & recreated the folder, this may have become unchecked, and the indexing service won't see what's there.
