publicize is not working for new page creation

  1. I had crated new page but I am unable to see the pulicize info on twitter and this is a child to other page.

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

  2. Publicize only works for posts, not for pages.

  3. But as I feel Page is more advantageous than post so I recommend support even for page
    Thanks,

  4. You are wrong; pages are specifically for the kind of information which is not current. WordPress.com is a blogging platform, not a page creation platform, so you probably won't see that happening, ever.

  5. Pages have sooo many disadvantages.

    First off I suggest you familiarize yourself with the differences between pages and posts (if you have not already): http://support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ .

    Using pages for your content has drawbacks you need to be aware of:

    1. Pages will show up lower in search engine results because search engines place lower emphasis on pages. Pages are meant for static content. For some types of sites, this may actually be the best way of presenting the material though.

    2. When you publish a post, wordpress automatically "pings" all the major search engines to let them know you have published a new post so that they can index it. When you publish a page, wordpress does NOT "ping" the search engines. You will have to ping manually at a service such as pingomatic.com.

    3. Only posts show up on an RSS feed, pages do not. That means people cannot subscribe to your blog so that they are alerted when you add something new.

    4. You can assign categories and tags to posts to help the search engines properly place you in search results. Pages cannot have tags or categories as they sit outside the blog structure which means your stuff will also not show up in the wordpress.COM global tags pages. For most people the global tags pages are responsible for bringing a lot of visitors to their blogs.
