Search Engines

  1. How come my blog isn't coming up in search engines. In privacy settings I selected the section that said I want my blog to show up. But, when I google myself, it doesn't show up! What's going on?

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

  2. This is a very common query that new bloggers post to the forum. We frequently hear from those who have written a few posts and who can’t find them simply because they have not been indexed by the 3 big search engines.

    Assuming you verify ownership of your blog with the 3 big search engines, and you hunker down and begin to create an archive of high quality unique content blogging 5 days of the week, did you know that the average time frame before one sees their blog posts surfacing in the SERPS (search engine page results) is 4 – 6 weeks?

    Granted this timeframe may be shorter if any of your posts has been backlinked to by other bloggers in their new posts, or if any posts “go viral”.
    It’s important that you correctly tag and categorize all of your posts and that the combined total of categories and tags on any post does not exceed 10.
