Author Posts February 22, 2013 at 11:23 pm #1162637 thedomesticatedfeministMember When I publish posts, sometimes it doesn’t appear in the “reader” of those who follow my blog. The blog I need help with is thedomesticatedfeminist.com. February 23, 2013 at 12:14 am #1162793 timethiefMember It could be that you are inadvertently spamdexing. When it comes to Categories and Tags, assigning the least combined number of relevant ones is the rule of thumb. Will you please check out the reasons for non-appearance here? http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/#missing-posts If you have assigned a combined total that exceeds 15 Categories/Tags to your posts, then you need to edit and delete. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/ After removal note it may take several days for your posts to begin displaying there.

I had no idea, I was under the impression that more tags = better. Thanks again! February 25, 2013 at 5:19 am #1162842 timethiefMember Hooray! That’s so good to hear. Happy blogging.
