Searching for my blog on WordPress

    I tried to look up/search for my blog from the home page (not signed in) and had no luck. Couldn’t find it under the title, my user name, my real name, or anything related to the title. How can I make it appear? (it is being found through topic searches. However, if I verbally tell someone about it and he/she searches for it based on the title, my name, etc., it doesn’t seem to appear) Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks. Olivia

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

    The WordPress.com search engine indexes post, pages, and comments content (body text). Unless entered as text in those contents, blog name, post titles, and post/comment author names are not indexed. http://en.support.wordpress.com/wordpresscom-search/

    Thanks for the info. Saw that page before, but am wanting more than they provide, it seems. And yes, I can send them the link in a flash, but was seeking an alternative. Such is life.

    I’m sorry it wasn’t the answer you wanted to hear and thank you for not shooting the messenger. You’re welcome and best wishes with your blog. :)

    P.S. Will you be kind enough to enter the top of this thread and mark it “resolved”?
