Is it updating Google contacts that doesn't sync, or is it that new contacts created on the phone don't sync? – Matthew Read Jun 1 '11 at 0:20

By default the contacts you see on the web are your most used contacts. You have to choose all contacts to see everyone.

Is your phone configured to sync contacts with your Google account?

To verify this go to Settings --> accounts & sync, tab on your account and verify that the Sync Contacts option is checked.

If this option is checked then the contacts are synced to your account but you are probably using a configuration in your gmail web account that only shows you the most used contacts instead of all contacts.
