Search This Blog

Why can't I find my blog in search engines?

That is a frequent question from new bloggers. New bloggers who just started are understandably impatient to find their blogs in search engines. However, search engines take time to index new blogs. The first thing bloggers should do is to check if their blogs had been indexed. This is simply done by typing
site:URL of blog
into the search box and search. For example, to check if this blog is indexed, I would type
site:bloggerfordummies.blogspot.com
and see if it results in anything. If nothing turns up, it means it had not been indexed yet. If it had been index, there would be at the minimum 1 result.

Even after a blog is index, searches for the blog may result in a link at perhaps the 1001th page of the SERP (search engine result page) which obviously would be very hard to find.

So what more can we say except, please be patient.
