Posts not appearing under searched category

  1. Why do my blog posts not appear when searching for a specific topic category? I did a search for Cellular Consciousness, a category topic that I have multiple postings listed under, and NONE of them came up listed (actually, only one article was found!). Why is this? Do I need to do something else, or is this a WordPress problem? Thank you!

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

  2. When it comes to Categories and Tags, assigning the least combined number of relevant ones is the rule of thumb. Will you please check out the reasons for non-appearance here?
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/#missing-posts If you have assigned a combined total that exceeds 15 Categories/Tags to your posts, then you need to edit and delete. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/ After removal note it may take several days for your posts to begin displaying there.

    Note also:
    5. Your blog is very new. It can take a few days before new blogs are included on topic pages. Brand new blogs might not have enough posts for us to accurately determine whether or not they’re spam.

  3. Thank you timethief.....I thought the limit was for 15 tags only, and not combined with the categories section also, so this may be the problem....will try it out. Many of my blog posts under the topic in question were posted weeks ago, so the question of blog newness may not really apply. We'll see! Thank you again and best Wishes in your continued work!
