Many new bloggers get their blog set up, make their first post, and then go to Google to try and find it.
Of course, they won’t find it there, since it’s not going to be there. But inevitably they think something’s wrong. That’s when they reach out to us and ask “where can I find my blog?”
That’s a little like wondering why your preschooler hasn’t graduated college after their first day of pre-school. 🙂
So Why Is My New Blog Not In Google Yet?
The short answer is, Google is in the business of helping you find the best information available for your search. To that end, they don’t show posts from brand new just-started blogs where the paint hasn’t even dried yet.
Basically, Google will show links to your blog when Google feels your blog is worthy of being in Google.

But, How Can People Get To My Blog Until Then?
Sure, you want your friends, family, and everyone else to start reading your blog.
Until your blog is ready to stand on its own, you’re going to have to send people to it. That means you send people the link to your blog by email, or via Facebook for example.
And when you make a new blog post, you email them the link to that directly.
That’s part of building your blog. That’s how it begins, it’s how a blog always starts growing, and it’s a process referred to as “organic growth”. And it’s part of what Google needs to see before they will give your blog any street cred.
So, by all means, make a blog post, then send your friends an email with the link to it! And share the post with your friends on Facebook or Google Plus too!
