Finding Blogs?

  1. Is it possible to find Blogs on, for example, travel without having a particular URL. I want to set up my own Blog on Cruising but do not know how potential readers can find me. Can it be only those who have my URL or if I put my URL on othe sites? I am an absolutely new beginner to this with nothing on my Blog yet keith

    The blog I need help with is keithsworld14.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi there,
    I can help with this. See: Find Friends Who Use WordPress > http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/find-friends/

    1. You can set up email subscriptions by using this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/follow-blog-widget/

    2. If you would like a follow button to appear on the bottom right hand corner of your site for those who do not have WordPress.com accounts see here >

    3. You can also set up a secure contact form.

    Social networking is strictly give to get. It takes months of posting frequently to attract viewers who will actually submit comments. The best way to get comments on your own posts is to leave meaningful comments on blogs with similar content to what's in your own blog. Set a goal of commenting on "X" number of blogs weekly and carry through.

  3. The WordPress.com search engine indexes post, pages, and comments content (body text). Unless entered as text in those contents, blog name, post titles, and post/comment author names are not indexed. http://en.support.wordpress.com/wordpresscom-search/

    For Google searches use this format and replace "keyword" with whatever word you wish:
    keyword site:wordpress.com/

    Example search string
    Queen Victoria site:wordpress.com
    results > http://tinyurl.com/csaobsx

    For Topics (Tags page) searches see http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/

  4. Thanks for the help. I am sure it will all be useful when i decipher it! I am afraid you are talkng to an ignoramous here. For the moment the last tip will get me started ie the search string. Now to try....

  5. There's always a learning curve involved when we are new to something. To succeed one has to recall that it's the tortoise who finished the race; the hare does not cross the finish line.

    Is it possible to find Blogs on, for example, travel without having a particular URL.

    Yes. Use wordpress.com search, Topics search and Google search. See above.

    want to set up my own Blog on Cruising but do not know how potential readers can find me.

    They find you the same ways that you find them. That's why commenting on posts in similar blogs and meeting bloggers with similar interests in social networks is important.
