    My son’s new blog, http://namethatpoo.wordpress.com was started just a couple days ago and when we try to search for it on wordpress, it says that there is no blog by the username ‘namethatpoo’ Is there some step that we need to take to activate as public? I checked the privacy settings and it is set to be viewable by the public.

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

    Yes it’s public alright, but it’s very new: it takes days or weeks before search engines find a new blog.

    You have one post, and that is “uncategorized!” In order for people with interests similar to yours, you must use tags or categories to let people know what you are writing about.
    Here is how other wordpress users and search engines would find you:

    Where are you searching for it?

    The WordPress search feature (“Search WordPress.com blogs”) indexes your post title and content, but it doesn’t include the blog name or username.
