    Hello Everyone,

    Thank you in advance for your help. We recently published a plugin (about 2 hours ago). We can see the plugin when visiited directly (https://wordpress.org/plugins/business-reviews/) but it does not show up in search. With previous plugins we have published they showed in search right away and I am wondering if we did something wrong or if it will take longer for it to start appearing.

    We recently published a plugin (about 2 hours ago).

    Almost 4 whole hours ago. Try an be patient, OK? 😉

    Just adding a plugin doesn’t mean it will get into Google search results and frankly, the plugin repo isn’t there for that. If users find your plugin here then that’s good.

    Thanks for your response. I am talking about the plugin repo not Google search. When we search the plugin repo on WordPress.org or from the backend of a website we cannot find the plugin.

    This is a followup for anyone who encounters the same issue. I emailed the Plugin support team. They do an incredible job by the way. They said that it takes about a week or so. They gather information about the Plugin and then it starts to show more in the repository search and in the backend website search.

    This seems to be a little different from the old repo, but we are happy with the response.
