My wordpress site is not available for public viewing. When I google Miri Isla Hollar, or if I include wordpress, it does not come up. I’m also having trouble linking my facebook page. Twitter seems to be working fine.
The blog I need help with is miriislahollar.wordpress.com.
Know it takes time and frequent publication of content that cannot be found elsewhere on the internet for search engines to discover your content and index it. See here for verifying your blog with the major search engines. http://en.support.wordpress.com/webmaster-tools/
Google recommends the XML sitemap as the best means of communicating site specific data and WordPress.com automatically generates an XML sitemap for your blog – you do nothing. http://en.support.wordpress.com/sitemaps/#xml-sitemaps-for-search-engines

I’m also having trouble linking my facebook page. Twitter seems to be working fine.
Are you referring to the Facebook likebox widget? It will not accept the URL for a profile page. It will accept the URL for a fan page.
Your blog is only a month old – the title matches a landmark of some sort so you have a lot of competition with search engines – you also only have about three small Posts – that is not much for search engines to latch onto – also it takes search engines 4 to 6 weeks to index a new site
You need to blog more
Thank you so much for your help. I’m new to blogging, and your advise has been very useful. I’m still not sure what a facebook fan page is and how to get a URL that will be accepted. Many thanks for giving up your time.
