    Hello my website address should be http://www.carolineuff.com I have not set this to public until now as it has taken me a long time to try and set up my site.Yesterday I went to the general settings and set it to be able to be found by search engines.Now it still cannot be found by search engines and even when I put in the whole address myself it comes up as my blog info but it takes me to my website.

    Can I change the url address in my settings info to http://www.carolineuff.com
    should I now also do something with my host company.

    Thank you.

    Can I change my domain name to just http://www.myname.com in the general settings panel. Will this make my url come up on search engines more easily ?

    For new websites, it will take a few days to be indexed by google. You may install plugins e.g. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-sitemap-generator to help google find your site.

    For search engines if you have google account then open google webmasters and submit your sitemap there . Sitemap can be build with wordpress seo by yoast plugin . Submit those sitemaps to google webmasters . Goggle will take it within two days and you can find your site on search engine .

    I have downloaded the plugin but now it looks like I have to list all the urls connected to my website.
    If this is correct please can you tell me if it is possible in my general settings to list my address as
    http://www.myname.com as my wordpress address
    and http://www.myname.com as my site address
    at present these addresses are very long
    ie http://www.myname.com/myname.
    I would like my wesite url to be just http://www.name.com will this be ok.
    Thank you.

    for the yoast plugin you have 5 xml sitemaps . submit the post-sitemap.xml to google . yes that will be fine
