    I have supposedly posted something, but it is irretrievable by the search engine. It is as if it wasn’t posted. Can anyone help me with this?

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

    Timethief,

    Thank you very much. But in my inexperience I must have done something wrong (well I’m still doing it, since I have not been able to retrieve my post in the search engine). I can see my post, only in my account, but if I sign out and look for it, then it is impossible to find. Do you have any idea what I’ve been doing wrong? Thank you again.

    That is good news. Go to screen options and select all the modules. http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/#list-of-modules

    Edit the post please > Posts -> All Posts in your dashboard menu.
    When it is open go to the Publish module on the far left hand side and look to see whether or not it is:
    private
    public
    password protected

    Check the date and time stamp and be sure they are correct.

    As far as I can tell you seem to have only one post.

    Well it takes time for search engines to index content so this is not unusual. Please verify your blog ownership with the major search engines using this process. Then read this as it contains the 10 factors that may expedite indexing. OMG! I can’t find my blog on Google

    You are right! Before I continue writing, I wanted to make sure my posts were out there, otherwise it would have been quite silly of me. You have been extremely informative and serviceable. Thank you very much.

    I completely misunderstood you from the outset. I thought you had actually lost a post while creating it. However, I’m happy to know once I understood what you meant that I was able to help you. Do be aware that it can take weeks for posts to be indexed and show up in the Google SERPs (search engine page results). The article I linked to contains the 10 factors that expedite indexing. Most important of all is to frequently publish original content — engaging content that other bloggers choose to backlink to in posts of their own.
