Hi NSilva, have you hit the published button on your article??
on the left side of the page you will see the published or draft, have you tried that

yes, multiple times. I'm beginning to think this might be an IT issue. I'll try a few more times then I'm calling in the big guns. LOL

jeeze...ok so you are saying after you clicked on published then you navigate to your website the article is not there??...ok the only other thing I can think of is if it is a page?? then it is set to a static page that is why the post is not showing, if the front site is showing a static page then you have not configured it to show your post.

You have to go to the dashboard ----> then click on settings ---> reading ------> on the top it will say latest post and static page, to show your latest post ...you click on the latest post and save the page at the bottom. now you should see your latest post on your website..

Hope this helps

I'm trying to post the blog to WA, not my website. Or am I confused.? Is the WA blog supposed to post to the website or just to my WA blog. This is all new to me and I find myself chasing my tail sometimes.

oh, if you want to publish to WA you are using the WA blogger then?
WA blog only post to WA but is seen on the internet as well

You clicked on the PEN icon on the top of your screen

You have to include the title at the top...

3 tags at the bottom.

Press the publish button after you put in the tags...should work for you

There is a button at the bottom that tells you what to do.

I would have said chrome, but save the draft and keep trying, I lost an entire website the other day and it is now back.

How are you getting on with your blog?
How many blogs have you written today?
Reply
nsilva2270 Premium
I've written 2 or 3 already but can't get them to publish. So they just sit there, all alone and neglected.

Right you can only publish one a day the other ones will be stored until you can publish them.

I had this happen to me and I was told I can only publish one blog a day for the first three months.

So everything is work fine you now have two more for the next two days.

Hope this helps

Hi,
I had a similar issue with one of my friends. We moved from Firefox to Chrome and it went through.

Make sure you save your works as draft. Then open in a different browser.

You may also want to check and make sure your current browser is up to date

Is this your WA blog you're referring to? If so, it often 'times out' and you just have to keep trying. Also, as a new member, you can only post one WA blog per day for the first 90 days.

Yes, it's the WA blog. I have tried several times and not on the same day but it just doesn't work. Very frustrating. I also have another question. I just got an email saying that my website had been indexed by Google. This is my actual website where I have no content yet. How can it already be indexed and my WA one WITH content not be indexed? I'm sooooo confused. LOL

OK, our WA blogs are indexed/ranked only because they are part of the wealthyaffiliate.com site. Your site has been indexed, but won't be 'ranked' for SEO until you add content. It just means that Google knows you exist, not that they're sending any traffic your way. Just keep trying to publish, I promise it will eventually go through.

Oh, and make sure you've added two 'tags' to the post, they are required. A tag is just a topic descriptor.

I usually login with my phone when this happens to me, and it does several times. I just login with my phone and publish it from my phone, since it is already saved and it usually just goes right through. That's my solution anyway but you can try it and see.

thanks for that advice. the problem being I don't use a smartphone. yes, I am a dinosaur.

I've tried that. Does it matter what tag I use?
Reply

thanks. This is all Greek to me.

No, it does not matter what tag you use, just be sure to use two.

Well give sitecontent time and keep trying. It will work eventually, sometimes it's just a snag. Make sure you tag some names of your followers just incase that's the reason why it's not posting.

OK will do

are you talking in the "tags" box? I thought that was for content descriptors.
