How will people find my blog if it is marked mature?

    How will people find my blog if it is marked mature? It's not intended to be pornographic, but I do give honest sex advice and talk about sexual topics. Is that grounds for being marked mature?
    Blog url: http://thehonestsexblog.wordpress.com/

  2. A blog that is marked as Mature is excluded from public areas of the WordPress.com service. http://en.support.wordpress.com/mature-content/

    But that doesn't mean Google and other search engines will not index your site. You will still get traffic from searches.

  3. "Adult" or mature content blogs are allowed but pornography is not allowed.
    From the TOS http://en.wordpress.com/tos/
    Please don’t:
    •Post explicit sexual materials that can be considered pornographic, such as explicit images or video of sexual acts or close-up images of genitalia;
    •Post links or banner ads to adult-oriented affiliate networks, such as pornography site signups;
    •Post links, text, or images promoting or advertising escort services;
    •Post images of extreme violence or gore without associated context or commentary;
    •Post images of child pornography;
    •Post content that promotes pedophilia, such as blogs with galleries of images of children where the images, content surrounding the images, or the intent of the blog is sexually suggestive.
