Posts not showing up on reader

  1. I noticed that my new posts are no longer showing up in WP reader. For instance, I'll post something and tag it with labels like cake, cupcakes etc and when I go to the reader and do a search for these tags, none of my posts show up on the reader which is why no one is visiting my site. Would appreciate any help on this. Thanks!

    My two blogs are:

    My posts had been missing from the WP Reader list for a few days now. I have tried everything to bring them back - by reducing tags and categories etc. (read on topic) but in vain.

    My blog is an active one, with average 400 hits a day! This resulted in a slow down of traffic but might become critical if it continues.

    Appreciate any help and assistance from WP Support or members who has gone through the same difficulties. Thanks in advance!

  3. I am a new blogger, but was averaging about 100 hits a day, which I was thrilled at. Since Monday, I am down to around 5. I have posted 3 stories, only one of which has appeared in the reader in the right order, one showed up 13 hours prior to its actual posting, and one didn't appear at all. Support has not been very helpful, but it is very discouraging to think people who were reading me lost interest so fast. I will be curious to see what happens.

  4. @kokoef
    Will you please check to see if any of the reasons for non-appearance apply to your blog posts?

  5. @eternityoneness
    After your have edited to remove excessive tags/categories from posts it will take some time before posts starting appearing on the Topics pages again.

    I too am not showing up in the reader. This has happened before and it is frustrating. I have read the link that TT was kind enough to provide. I am in compliance with every one of those issues and I always try to be.
    I also have found some of the favorite blogs that I like to read not showing up either.
    I have brought this up before and was ignored. I am hestitant to post anything.
    I am at a loss. Should I try to re- post something?

  7. kokoef, both of your blogs seem to be fine now.

    eternityoneness, there was a small glitch with yours, but you should be appearing in a day or two.

    strawberryindigo, you're all fixed up now.

    juliebrowning18, what is the URL of the affected blog?

  8. @macmanx-my blog is thanks for checking on it. As far as I know, I'm not doing anything that would prevent it from appearing in the Reader, according to the list. Although, the last post, titled "Yet another Crappppptastic day in the life", I posted that using the quick post link on the "My Blog" page, not through my dashboard. I don't know if that makes a difference or not. That post never did end up in the Reader as far as I know. Thanks for your help

  9. New blogger here (6 mos).

    Learning to use tags more proficiently (I hope), but I'm not certain I've done it right or am "finding it" right. Take today's post (, I would expect to plug the words "gnome," "lake michigan," or "lighthouse" into the Reader's topic box, the post being listed there.

    I'm certain I'm either doing something wrong in the post, or not finding it in the right way. My blog is not private, but is also not included in search engines.

    Thank you for your time and effort.

  10. juliebrowning18, your whole feed is showing in the Reader now, so hopefully it was just a temporary glitch.

    dirtnkids, your blog appears to be fine too, possibly another temporary glitch, or not enough time for it to show up.

    Hi, Support Hero,
    It looks like you were able to help other bloggers so please help me if you can. I just noticed that my posts aren't in the Reader today. One from two days ago was there this morning, but now it's vanished too. It would be great if others could choose to read them. The Reader is a great resource—lots of good reads!
    Many thanks,

  12. thewildwomanwithin, everything seems to be fine for your blog too.

    Which tags are looking for it in?

  13. thewildwomanwithin

    Thank you!
    I had too many tags on it. I learned today that there is a limit.
    Thanks, again!

  14. You're welcome!

  15. Thank you for the timely response, macmanx. Still not feed-streaming last I checked just now. I will give it a couple of more days. Not too much in the "bernoulli" department (my other post of today), so should be easy to page through several days of posts.

    If it is a glitch, I'm assuming it will iron out. I agree with thewildwomanwithin that the reader is a great resource for locating like-material. I would be delighted if my properly tagged content wasn't being "missed" by potential traffic. Cheers!

  16. sweetaccountability

    macmanx, I also am having this problem with my posts not showing in the tags. It's been going on for perhaps a week now? I have also gone through the support document with possible reasons why multiple times and seem to be in compliance.

    Any suggestions on how to proceed would be great! Thank you so much for your help.


  17. My posts have shown no activity at all over the last few days. When I pull it up I just get the wheel turning. Just want to make sure everything is okay.


  18. eternityoneness

    macmanx and timethief !

    It works again!!!! Keep up the excellent work guys. I am truly grateful to have people like you both. THANK YOU :-)

  19. I know it's not quite been a couple of days, but I'm still not able to "find" my posts using any of the tags and the topic box in the Reader. Typing into topic box "bernoulli", I would expect to see six posts listed, including my latest post ( It still isn't there as I check this morning.

    I find this a good post to check (to see if the glitch is fixed) since there are so few of them. Perhaps, again, I am premature in giving it enough time for it to show up.

    Is it possible that its being listed on my stats page as a " Private" (as opposed to kidsndirt which is "") is somehow affecting its being found in the blog Reader? Just a thought.

  20. Ah, sorry for missing that. At Settings -> Privacy in your blog's Dashboard, you have chosen to block search engines, which also blocks the Reader.

  21. So, then, is there a way to welcome potential WordPress traffic, but not the whole world (i.e. Google, Yahoo!, Bing...)? Is the potential for DirtNKids to be considered for Fresh Pressed also waived by choosing not to be included in search engines?

  22. sweetaccountability

    I'm also still unable to locate any of my posts using tags in the reader. I do not believe that I have my Privacy settings set like that (I've checked a few times) and also have checked the list of other reasons they wouldn't be showing up over and over. Any insight or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.


  23. I am not sure where to post this-have posted it prior but nothing happened. Im not overly concerned with the reader aspect-as I tend to tage etc for my own reference, though most of mine dont actually show up. Currently posts are not even showing up on MY blog-yet they say they have been published and are public. The side bar is also staying at the base so it is impossible to navigate. I have tried a few things but all my posts are in weird orders-all over the place am I able to get some assistance with cheers

  24. Okay. I've created a new blog and it's search engine setting is set to PUBLIC to avoid problems with the reader. I've posted more than 12 hours ago, but the post ( is still not showing up in the reader under the tags.

    New blog:

    Now what?

  25. ayearinthelifeofptsd

    I emailed Support almost 24 hours ago, and have not received a reply. My posts are not showing up in the reader under any of the tags I've given it. This is a recent development because I previously showed up in the reader.

  26. Sorry for the repost, I had trouble with the link -- and I just want to make sure that my query was clearly stated:

    I am finding that the posts from my blog
    are not showing up in the reader -- no matter what tag/category or topic. They had been showing up recently and now have stopped within the last week.

    I looked at the responses above to troubleshoot. I seem to be doing all the right things (not over-tagging, the content isn't mature, etc.). I'm just wondering what might be creating the problem and how I might be able to correct it. Any help you can pass on would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you in advance,

  27. sweetaccountability

    Hi All-- Wondering if anyone was able to resolve this issue (of all posts not appearing in reader under tags) and if so, how they did so? My problem has continued and despite many attempts to figure out why, I can't get to the heart of the problem!

    Thank you.


  28. Is this thread still going? I appear to be one of only two active members.

    My problem (on the new blog) has still yet to be resolved more than a week passed already. If there is another support forum, I would love to be a part of it. Perhaps I shall go have a look-see now. I want to resolve any settings on my part before I post further. I would be most delighted like to be "found" by other WordPress users (and the world, for that matter) using topic tags.

  29. sweetaccountability

    dirtnkids, I feel similarly. Any help/suggestions would be very appreciated. Perhaps we are looking in the wrong place...
