searching blog title on wordpress produced 0 results - why

  1. I've tried searching the wordpress site for my blog both under my username and the name of the blog but it comes up with 0 results. Why is that? And how can I get listed on the various search engines, as I tried searching as above on Google with the same result.

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

  2. The WordPress.com search engine indexes post, pages, and comments content (body text). Unless entered as text in those contents, blog name, post titles, and post/comment author names are not indexed.

    WordPress.com automatically sends notifications to Google with every post and page update. The search engines can take 4-6 weeks or more to add any new sites. For more information about WordPress.com and Search Engines, please see http://support.wordpress.com/search-engines/ .

    It will take a couple of days from the time you created your blog for to show up in WordPress.com search results. For more information please see http://support.wordpress.com/wordpresscom-search/ .

    You can control whether or not search engines index your site in your Privacy Settings in your dashboard at Settings > Privacy Settings.

    Please check out our support documentation at http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/ and let me know if you have any questions.
