Its because either your firewall or your router. If you don't have the ports forwarded, your friends are unable to join the game. So either open the ports in the firewall settings and or open the ports in the router. (PS, make sure of course your GAME is not on LAN mode. "sv_lan 0" in console *without the "*)

Before you are going to ask how, use the search function (click link below):

EDIT: More help threads:
http://forum.esforces.com/showthread.php?t=58969&highlight=Ports <-- excellent thread to help you out if you have a router:
The actual ports needed to host a game and for people to see it are 27000-27030
