    Hi,

    I've been getting so many more likes for my posts which is awesome but the only issue I am having is that the people who liked them or how many people like them doesn't show up on the blog to the public. It only shows up to me when I am logged in which is strange. Under my settings>>sharing, I do have the box checked next to where it says I want the likes to be shown and who likes them.

    Can someone PLEEEAASE help me!! I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you
    Joanna

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

    Not to worry. I can see them. Click the title on your posts and they open on their own page. At the bottom of the posts above the comment boxes you can see the gravatars of those who "liked" each post. Bote: The front pages of our blogs showcase content, comments are collapsed on the front page and you cannot change this.

    Also with regard to the combined number of categories and tags you are using please see here > global tags > missing posts

  3. Rats! I clicked the wrong letter "Bote" was supposed to be "Note"

    Hi TimeThief,

    Thank you very much that makes sense!!

    So therefore, none of the likes will ever show up on the main page? Why is this? Makes no sense. Is there anything that can be done to show this? It's important to me because my blog is for my business so it's good when it shows people liking the posts.

    For the tags, are you saying that I have too many and I need to get rid of some? I have never had anything sent to me saying there are too many so let me know if this is complicating things as well.

    Thanks
    Joanna

  5. It makes tonnes of sense to those of us who have well established blogs and who gets lots of comments. In a new blog one does not have many posts or comments. In an established blog if the comments did not collapse on the front page it would become a mile long in no time flat and page loading time is a page ranking factor. Stdies reveal we have only 3 - 4 seconds before visitors refuse to wait for the site to load and click out.

  6. For the tags, are you saying that I have too many and I need to get rid of some? I have never had anything sent to me saying there are too many so let me know if this is complicating things as well.

    I am saying please reasd the support documentation so you become aware that using an excessive number of tags means your posts will bot be displayed on the WordPress.com global tag pages. You never will have anything sent to you -- your posts just won't appear there.

    Also note that search engines take a dim view of the over user of tags to gain attention. Tags are not required for search engine optimization purposes. Excessive use of tags is AKA as spamdexing or tag spamming and if you stick with that habit you may find your posts appeara wayyyyyyyyy back in the Google SERPs (search engine page results).
