    Hi,

    I am brand new to WordPress as I usually use other platforms and I am finding EXTREMELY difficult to navigate. I am trying it out and have not downloaded but used the WordPress hosted version of a blog site, chose a theme etc. My question is will Google crawl a site that ends in .wordpress.com? I submitted the site directly to Google a few days ago but when I checked, it didn't look as though it was picked up yet.

    THANKS!

    Type your site URL in Google search box and check if that particular site being cached by Google.

    Yes, that is what I did, but I didn't see it. That is what made me wonder about Google and WordPress Hosted (again, it is not on my server). Do you know if it still picks it up?

    Self-hosted brand new blog ( from my WP experience ) takes up to one month to get indexed by Google.

    It is NOT self-hosted. It is hosted by WordPress. What is your experience w/ that and getting crawled? I just didn't want to pay for a domain while I am still learning WordPress etc.
