posts not appearing in the wordpress feeds

  1. Why doesn't my blogposts show up in any of the wordpress feeds. Of all the posts I've published, only three have ever shown up. Am I being censored? What's the use in writing if wordpress is blocking access? I posted 30min ago; same problem. I'm not even showing up in the tags I invented, or in the ones that are empty.

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

  3. I just checked your blog and you are also spamdexing ie. tag spamming ie. assigning too many combined categories and tags to some posts. http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/#missing-posts

    You can edit the posts and change that.
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts
    hover over the title of the post and click the edit link

    After removal note it may take several days for your posts to begin displaying on the Topics pages again.

    As a rule of thumb we assign the least number of categories and/or tags that reveal what the content in the post is focused on. We are also mindful that search spiders can detect if we assign categories and/or tags that are not supported by the keywords in the content in the post.

  4. ok. I try to stay within 12 tags..idn't know there was a super limit. thanks.

  5. Staff elevated that to a very generous maximum of a total of 15 combined categories and tags.

  6. What is the limit on tags before the spam filter is activated. 8, 10, 12?

  7. Okay! If I understand you correctly, all I have to do is delete some tags!!!

  8. Did you read the information here? http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/#missing-posts It's the only information we bloggers have been given for an obvious reason ie. as if we knew more the spamming attempts aimed at gaming the Topics set up that we already endure would escalate.

  9. I don't understand what you mean with categories. I thought the tag was the category.

  10. Tags and Categories are not the same but are treated exactly the same way by search engines and the software here treats them equally too.

  11. Okay Thief, thank you very much for the info, I won't be making those mistakes again. My post has started showing up. Please have a read too(lol). WordPress rocks. Cheers, thanks a lot.

  12. You're welcome and best wishes for happy blogging.
