When you install WordPress using the Fantastico Installer, the privacy settings block search Engines by default. I like this feature because it won’t allow Google to index your blog, which is good before your blog is ready.
It has come to my notice that, some people including, but not limited to Todd, forgets to change their privacy setting and hence, their blog seldom gets indexed, no matter how they try.
I wonder why some don’t even check all the settings pages on their blog at least once.
Once your blog is ready to go live, make sure you change the Privacy Settings under Settings on the left side bar > Privacy to: “I would like my blog to be visible to everyone, including search engines (like Google, Bing, Technorati) and archivers”
Get a good spot on Google.
