I have had not a single poem post in the “poems” category since before this thread and up to now and I’ve posted many. They show up in the “poetry” category only. I see the others posting in the “poetry” category also showing up in the “poems” category all during this time but not one of mine have!!
I have been using only 4 tags. Poem Poetry Creative Writing and Writing and that is all even though I see the others that are posting using many more.
What will it take for this to be taken as an actual problem and not push off??
evidently it’s particularly picky. You have to have it exact as “poems”. The time and effort you waste on this site to learn its peculiarities is maddening.
and I would hate to have my discovery dependent on someone quite accidentally bumping into my blog on a Google search for crying out loud!
I’m sorry, but there are 31 million blogs on WordPress.com with a very large percentage using “poetry” as a tag.
We cannot guarantee that every blog will appear on the front page of that global tag listing. If we did, that would amount to approximately 7 pages of posts made in the last 1 minute.
I understand what you’re saying but I see others that regularly have posted poems every single day! Why are they getting this and the rest of us labor for a crap shoot.
I thought I had it figured out with the exact “poems” but evidently not since I went to another blog and posted using the exact “poems” and still nothing.
Along with that one my one http://poeticsojourn.wordpress.com blog today I have been having preview issues. Some times it works and some times it doesn’t. Some times it opens in the same tab you’re working in making it then impossible to do the edit. Some times it shows the text as it will appear and some times it doesn’t.
I have a theory. I think you spell crap shoot W-O-R-D P-R-E-S-S
before I go blaming WP too much I’ll do the requisite clearing of cache and cookies and see what happens but I wonder why it wasn’t an issue with the other blog on the same browser.
my posts do show up in the “poetry” category every time so far. I supposed they don’t have the same 31 million or so blogs
We do have some tips for gaining traffic:
You might also want to check out our user’s guide for general tips:
Many posts are published every day at WordPress.com — almost 850,000 posts were published today alone!
Still, there are plenty of active readers out there. Keep blogging, and you’ll find your niche in time! :-)
my main complaint is the wasted effort and time it takes to learn simple things that could be presented up front in a more easily accessible manner to your users.
also, why it wasn’t made more user friendly is a puzzle. It could still hold the advanced user with extras that they can utilize but also serve the less advanced computer aficionados who don’t have the degree in computer science or have spent most of their waking hours in front of a monitor.
As for the volume of users preventing one of my blogs from posting in “poems” regularly but allowing the other to is something that seems to contradict the many posting theory. Especially when I see the same users having multiple daily posts visible in this category. I guess their connections are quicker? ;) Must be using that new and improved internet.
We really appreciate the feedback. For the time being, I would recommend following the tips above and let us know how it goes.
well one thing I can tell you is I’m not buying the 31 million so you’ll have take your chances thing.
Since adjusting the one tag from “poem” to “poems” I have been regularly showing up in the “poems” category when posting from poeticsojourn.wordpress and souleander.wordpress but even though doing the exact same thing have never been showing up in psyhpoet.wordpress.com
Now, what are the odds of that? I mean really.
sorry that’s psychpoet.wordpress.com
so, letting you know how it goes here. I just posted the identical poem on the psychpoet blog and on the poeticsojourn blog. First the psychpoet and it doesn’t show. Then the poeticesojourn. Same content, same exact tags. It shows. I delete and try again on the poeticsojourn. It shows again. I try on the psychpoet. No show again.
You obviously have a product you only casually support. I think all I’ve presented to you presents a clear issue with the one blog.
and now I post in my third blog souleander and it shows right up. Obvious problem with the one blog and obvious unwillingness to service the product
more posts from peotic sojourn shows up in poems. Everytime. More posts from psych poet. Never shows up. There obviously is something wrong with the feed from psych poet and you could seem to care less. What’s this “support” that I’m hearing of? Does that “support” do anything?
I mean besides give out links
shhh just ignore him. He’ll eventually go away and we can collect our paychecks for handing out a few links and not resolving a completely rediculously obvious technical issue with his one blog and we can still refer to ourselves as “support”
so here it is for anyone that is actually reading this thread anymore.
I wasn’t getting my blogs to feed to the “poems” page because I was tagging “poem” and not “poems”.
I figured that out on my own after “support” telling me it was because I was tagging too much and they had 31 million blogs so getting posted is a crap shoot even though all blogs were posting every time in “poetry”.
Now that I’ve figured out on my own that I should be tagging “poems”, tow of my blogs post there each and every single time a post is posted even though there’s 31 million blogs but one never does.
All blogs post in “poetry” each and every single time as two blogs post now in “poems” each and ever single time and one never does. ever.
Now if this there isn’t a logical conclusion that the one blog has a feed issue to that “poems” page as the others do not then I don’t know how you guys approach troubleshooting except to throw unrelated links around. Good job if you can get it.
You don’t want to know what I really think of this. One thing is for absolute certain by now and that is it has nothing to do with however many blogs you have.
you send me links on how to advertise my blog merely to get yoursleves off the hook.
Go on and ignore but anyone seeing this has a clear picture of how you opperate or don’t opperate as the case may be.
This is very provable if you were at all interested. Just note the day that I realized the tag should be “poems” instead of “poem”.
Then go to my http://poeticsojourn.wordpress.com and my http://souleander.wordpress.com blogs and note all the posts made since that time and then look in the “poems” category and you will see every single one of them that was posted during that time.
Then go to my http://psychpoet.wordpress.com and not the posts made during that time and go to the “poems” category and you will not see a single one.
