How long to show up on Google Reader?

  1. Ok so I got my account yesterday at this time and both Google Reader and Feedburner don't recognize my subscription. How long before Google finds this new account? I'm putting it it like: lindaginex.wordpress.com What am I doing wrong? I have my settings open to feeds and I can find help on any support and forum posts. HELP!
    Thanks!

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

  2. The complete and clicakble URL for your blog is http://lindaginex.wordpress.com
    I published a blog post on exactly this topic of getting your blog indexed by search engines yesterday because so many people were confused about why their virtually empty blogs could not be found when searching Google. OMG! I can't find my blog on Google - contains 10 tips that may expedite the indexing process.

  3. Thank you!

    Just a suggestion:

    A disclaimer should be on the intro email you receive from wordpress. It's important for newbies to know that they won't be able to set up a portable RSS feed immediately. It would be good if newbies didn't have to search the globe for this particular question the way I worded it.

  4. I love that title TimeThief. :)

  5. @lindaginex
    FWIW all of our wordpress.com blogs do have RSS feeds for both entries (posts) and for comments.
    Your RSS feed for entries (posts) is http://lindaginex.wordpress.com/feed/
    Your RSS feed for comments is http://lindaginex.wordpress.com/comments/feed/

  6. In addition we do have this:
    The RSS Links Widget allows you to easily add links to your blog’s post and comment RSS feeds in your sidebar. This will provide your readers with a quick way to obtain your blog feed URLs and subscribe to them as they wish (via a web browser or RSS reader, like Google Reader). http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/rss-links-widget/

  7. Right and I get that. I'm just saying that google reader or feedburner don't recognize those entries (http://lindaginex.wordpress.com/feed/) yet. Am I missing something or does this go back to the 4-6 week dealy?

    Blog Visibility
    ___ I would like my blog to be visible to everyone, including search engines (like Google, Bing, Technorati) and archivers

  9. Then do this as I said in my blog post:
    http://ismyblogworking.com

    Results: Your blog is working. Your feeds are working.
    http://ismyblogworking.com/lindaginex.wordpress.com

    Your blog has not yet been indexed and that will take 4 - 6 weeks.
    You only have one post published.
