    Hi all

    I really need a couple of pointers in where I have gone wrong and what I can do to resolve it please.
    I have never made a website before so at first I signed up with WordPress.com I then paid for my domain name thru them. I realised later I needed .org because I eventually want a shopping cart, so I signed up with hostgator and I changed my name servers. I uploaded the responsive theme and started to add my first few pages but with not much content and generally started to organise the site. For a week or so it seemed fine and I also added a site down for maintenance plugin.

    Now however I can't find my website anywhere in the search engines even when I type the full address. If someone can help I would be very grateful ty.
    The site is called http://www.vintagedhome.com

    Hmmm I don't know whats going on but I just clicked on your link and it takes me to google results for vintaged wood. I'm on my iPhone tho so could this be the problem?? I asked a friend on his phone to look me up and he couldn't find it either.

    Thanks for taking a quick look and reply

    Sorry, I misread and thought Google Results were bringing up your website.
    Have you indexed your website with Google?

    I'll have to do it later as I can't do it from my phone.
    If you can view it with no problems then could it be it's just not showing when searched for from a mobile???
