    Hello!

    I recently set up my new blog, MazingMelissa.

    My stats and visits are increasing but my posts aren’t getting any “likes.” Could I be doing something wrong or have some settings blocked? My first post got some and I feel like the others are just as good.

    Please let me know.

    Thanks!

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

    I see like buttons on the bottom of your posts. I also see something you have to address at once.

    re: this post https://mazingmelissa.wordpress.com/2015/06/11/tying-the-knott-a-baltimore-wedding/

    Below is the combined excessive number of categories and irrelevant tags you assigned to that single post:

    Posted in Travel & Fun Events.Tagged parties, travel, spring, weddings, spring wedding, baltimore, maryland, roland park, power plant live, fells point, bar hopping, wedding reception, wedding ceremony, parks, walking, fun, friends, pizza, dining, entertainment, traveling, exploring, adventure, newlyweds, washington dc, hotels, rehearsal dinner, cafes, beer, brews, food, drinks, dessert, dreams, love, marriage

    All reasons for non-appearance of posts on Topics pages can be found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/#missing-posts
    The combined total of categories and tags on any post must not exceed 15 or it will not display on Categories and Tags pages and in the WordPress.COM Reader.

    As you have assigned a combined total that exceeds 15 Categories/Tags to your posts, you need to edit and delete. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/ After removal of the excess categories and/or tags note it may take several days for your posts to begin displaying there.

    You are are inadvertently spamdexing AKA tag spamming, you ought to be more concerned about your posts not appearing and being well ranked on Google and Bing SERPS (search results pages) than not appearing on the WordPress.com Topics pages because it’s search engines that send a significant flow of traffic to blogs and they can choose to bury your content where the sun don’t shine for that.

    The rule of thumb is to assign to your posts the least, not the most, combined number of only relevant categories and tags that accurately describe the individual post content.
