How long does it take a site to go live?

  1. I published my blog but it hasn't shown up yet

    The blog I need help with is davee19.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi, I'm new to wordpress. I was just wondering how long it takes a site to go live once I have published it. Thank you for your help.

  3. Shown up where?

    Have you clicked the link in your post above?

  4. You have a 1 hours old blog - it is "live" but it has one token Page with no real content on it - if you are wondering about search engines - it takes them 4 to 6 weeks to index a new site - and that is only if there is something worth indexing - there is no real reason for search engines to visit & index - blog more

  5. Thank you all for the responses. I have two pages currently , but when I go to them from my dashboard or the menu under my user ID in the upper right hand corner of my page (when logged in) or try to go to davee19.wordpress.com directly I get a "page not found" message.

    Your blog is live. By default your front page displays all your posts and you have not published any posts. The 404 (page not found) error message on the front page of your blog appeared because you deleted the placeholder Hello World post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/not-found/ As soon as you publish a post, not a page it will disappear. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

  7. Thanks everyone. Got it going. thistimethisspace - I didn't realize I hadn't published the post. Thanks for pointing that out and saving me a bunch of time. Just started on WordPress. Hopefully I'll get the hang of it quickly.
