New Blog doesn't show up in google search

  1. I just published my first blog entry yesterday. When I Google the my url, (name.wordpress.com), nothing comes up. My friends get the same response when trying to see my blog. So I don't exist. What did I do wrong?

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

  2. One blog entry - one day old -

    Best to take a long long walk - about 4 to 6 weeks long since that is how long it takes search engines to index a new site, and that is only if you put something worth indexing on your blog - keep on making Posts and one day soon at least the title will show up in a search

    Just send your friends the URL

  3. Thanks for the advice. I like to walk. Absolutely new at this and just assumed something was out of whack. Appreciate your help, thanks

  4. Hi @jondavidfotog, here is some information on submitting your wordpress.com site to Google Webmaster Tools to help get indexed faster.

    As auxclass noted above it takes weeks for search engines to index content. What attracts search engines is unique content the cannot be found anywhere else on the internet. Keep publishing original content frequently because it can take weeks before indexing will happen.

    For more information on expediting search engine indexing of your content read > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/01/21/omg-i-cant-find-my-blog-on-google/

    We cannot assist with search engine issues. They are between the blogger and the search engine. http://en.support.wordpress.com/search-engines/

    The process we use for verifying free hosted WordPress.com blogs with search engines is found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/webmaster-tools/

    NOTE: Even if you do not verify the blog the content will be indexed by search engines so don't feel panicky about this please.

    WordPress.com provides the search engines with site maps. We bloggers do nothing. http://en.support.wordpress.com/sitemaps/

  6. Thanks for info, really very much appreciated. It helps a lot

  7. You're welcome and best wishes to you.
