    Yahoo finds my blog when I type the name of the blog into the search line, but it isn’t finding specific posts, even when I use the exact post title and my blog name. Do I need to do something to have posts visible to search engines? (I added my site already)

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

    Hi Alisa,

    It looks like your site’s been up since August? If so, Yahoo and other search engines probably just haven’t had time to index your full blog. If Yahoo has indexed your home page, that’s a good sign. Just give it some time and the rest of your blog will be indexed.

    Good luck!

    Your site is still new – it can take search engines 4 to 6 weeks to index a new site. Your site is set to allow search engines to crawl your site. You have several Posts, that is good as each time you make a Post your blog calls up the search engines and tells them to stop by.

    Just to double check you did register your site with the search engines as below?

    Oh, thanks, guys. I didn’t know the engines index the full blog and not just the home page. I did the webmaster tool thing, so I thought I was done. I thought I was messing up the post heads or something! I will relax now …

    Google has indexed your site for 21 results:

    Search engines crawl all over your site sooner or later and try and figure out keywords, tags etc.
