I made a component that I wanted to add to the Account layout, but in the layout editor, it doesn't list my component under "Components".
What's going on? How do I get it to show up?

What you have to do is to include it in a VisualForce page.
Set the page
standardController=Account and turn off the header and sidebar ie:
Then place your component in the page.
Now you'll see your new page containing the component show up in the Account layout editor.
