getting my post in the reader

    Apparently I put too many tags on my new post and it didn’t get in the reader. So I removed some tags and still not showing. If I remove more tags will it eventually show up, or what? I’ve put a lot of time and effort in this post and want to see it in the reader–what can I do?

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

    After removal of categories/tags note it may take several days for your posts to begin displaying there.

    Thanks. I decided to repost it with a slightly new name, and it’s showing up in one of the three topic areas I tagged now. I’ll take the earlier one down now.

    Note that you may think that was successful from the appearance in the WordPress.com Reader POV, but the traffic you may glean from there is nowhere near the traffic you can get from Google to an indexed post (appearance in Google’s search results is hundreds of times more important). Please read this and know why you should always avoid deleting indexed posts and pages and 404 error messages in the future. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/08/05/avoid-creating-404-pages/

    Oh well, live and learn I guess. This has been a frustrating blogging day, but I appreciate your advice and will read more of what you have to offer to bloggers on your page.

    Thanks so much!
