Searchable on google

  1. Hi.

    I'm trying to make my site searchable, it must be brought back in google results. How can i add some tags for this? Currently it is not being brought back at all.

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

  2. Search engines aren't attracted to sites that are page based. Sites that are post based where publication is frequent are more attractive to them.

    re: search engine discoverability

    It can take weeks for search engines to index your site content. Please read this support doc https://en.support.wordpress.com/search-engines/ so you know we have no control over search engines positioning or appearance in the SERPs (search engine page results).

    To verify blog ownership of a WordPress.com hosted blog with the major search engines you must use this process > http://en.support.wordpress.com/webmaster-tools/
    Note: Even if you do not verify the blog the content will be indexed by search engines so don't feel panicky about this please.

    WordPress.com automatically supplies sitemaps for our blogs to search engines - we do nothing. http://en.support.wordpress.com/sitemaps/#xml-sitemaps-for-search-engines

    To gain search engine attention, I recommend that you start publishing posts (not pages) https://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ frequently. That's because it can take weeks for search engines to index content in a new blog and/or to re-index content under a new URL.

  3. Selective assignment of relevant categories and tags to your posts can attract more views. (Categories and tags can be assigned only to posts, not to pages.)

    All support docs are at https://en.support.wordpress.com/
    Search for categories

    Search for tags

    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. After removal of the excess categories and/or tags note it may take several days for your posts to begin displaying there and in the Reader.

    Also, note that posts do not display in the Reader forever. Posts only display in the WordPress.COM Reader for 60 days.
