    Hi everyone.

    When I type my blog name into the WordPress search engine it says that my blog doesn't exist. Can anyone tell me why and how I can get my blog to come up in searches?

    Thanks.

    You should probably ask that question on WordPress.com - WordPress.org is for hosted blogs.

    Hi.

    My site is a hosted blog. I'm a bit new to all of this so forgive my ignorance. Do I still need to go via wordpress.com?

    Thanks

    Hi!

    When I type my blog in the bit where you can search for other blogs or key words my blog doesn't show. Still a bit miffed really.

    And it's still unclear what you are talking about. What's your blog URL and where are you looking to see it listed? Google?

    When you type your blog in the bit (???) where is that exactly?

    Miffed why? If your blog is self hosted, it isn't going to show up in a search at wordpress.com. That's for blogs hosted there. I can't figure out why so many people think when they install WP it's somehow connected to either wordpress .org or .com. Sigh.

    Not very helpful, are they? I know what you're talking about, because I'm having the same issue. Just started my blog hosted on my website. Seems like WordPress would figure out an easy way to get their software to talk to each other. Let me know if you find out anything more. Good luck!

  11. Not very helpful, are they? I know what you're talking about, because I'm having the same issue.

    We're only helpful as long as you can clearly explain what the problem is.

    I looked at the other thread that SteveHingle left a comment on and I think I finally got it.

    From his other comment

    no search results at all in the WordPress.com search engine.

    WordPress.COM and self-hosted WordPress blogs don't talk to each other. Looking for your self hosted blog on WordPress.COM will never show up. It's not supposed to, they only index WordPress.COM blogs there.

    That's what they do and WordPress.COM is not a search engine. Look on Google or some other search engine and follow Samboll's advice above.

    Also give this a read for more info

    My day just doesnt seem complete without that one ass of the day ...

    do TRY to have a little more experience than 7 hours on this forum before alienating the very people youre asking for help. Its tough I know.
