Nine Years Later …

I had a notification pop today …

Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
You registered on WordPress.com 9 years ago.
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.

 

Although this particular blog started nine years ago today, I have been with WordPress a lot longer. I had a different blog for three or four years. But this is the longest I have kept one updated. I have other blogs on both WordPress and Blogger, but this is the one I update the most.
Thanks everyone who likes, comments or just silently visits.

Back In Searches

I had a reply from one of the staff from WordPress over my request to look into why I was not coming up in the searches. My message had been a pleasant one even though I wasn’t in the best of moods at the time, and I was stunned at the reply from them.

My message:

I have adjusted the tags and categories on my blog as it was suggested last week, and I am still not seeing my posts coming up in tag searches.

I have read other questions on here, and they all seem to show up the moment that the tags and categories are dropped below 15. I have been doing that for over a week now and they are not showing up. Some people have said that I am not showing up in the reader at all some times.

It is very hard to get readership if people only come to me through comments I have left on other blogs.

Three of my newer posts are:

blah blah blah

I would be grateful if this was sorted as soon as possible. Thank you.

Well, I had this reply a little while ago:

It looks like your blog was flagged for inappropriate content at some point. I have removed that flag as I’m not seeing anything that violates our policies.

You should show up in searches now.

I don’t think I have ever had anything inappropriate on my blog. It’s not how I use it. The good news is that I am back in the searches again. Thank you Rootjosh at WordPress
