FAQ: I Can't Find My Blog On The Search Engines!!

Contrary to popular belief, search engines do not index new content on the web instantaneously. It takes time and effort on the part of the webmaster of any site to get their site indexed and then decent page rank on the search engines.

There are several things you can do to help lessen the time it takes to get indexed and decent search results (in no particular order).

1. Make sure your blog is indexable by turning on the listing options in your blog settings.

2. Submit your blog url to the various search engines. For Google, go to this site to get started- http://www.google.com/intl/en/submit_content.html

3. Read this article from Google Webmaster Central that explains how they deal with content, indexing and search results. http://www.google.com/support/websearch/bin/answer.py?answer=39334&topic=8996

4. Add metatags with keywords, and descriptions to your blog template- http://mishkatestrun.blogspot.com/2007/04/meta-tag-example.html

5. Link to other blogs of similar content or interest.

6. Allow comments and backlinks on your blog and make comments on other blogs leaving your link.

7. Create and maintain interesting and accurate content on your blog to keep your readers entertained and returning.

8. DO NOT PARTAKE IN SPAMMY OR MALICIOUS ACTIVITY that would get your blog deleted and your account banned.
