Search engines are the trade winds of the internet. Like the explorers of the sailing age, intrepid web searchers set out to enrich themselves, their ultimate destination the ultimate mystery. Never mind that they end up on a blog instead of atop a hill of glittering treasure or in the belly of a whale. Let’s stick to the romantic metaphor.
A year ago we launched the WordPress.com search engine. Monthly searches number in the millions. Today we announce a significant update: instant findability. The instant you publish, searchers will see it at the top of the “most recent results” when they search for any terms in your post. We hope this helps people find you even if you aren’t the fountain of youth.
A very great move. Thanks.
I agree, its good to blog but better to see the stats that show people are interested in what you have to say…
i just know wordpress has a search engine, hehe
This is great. Thanks WordPress team.
Fantastic!!! Really gonna get the word out there! I’m loving this! :)
WordPress just keeps getting better and better!
Coolness. I will have to check it out.
And I must say I very much enjoyed your metaphor, Andy. I hadn’t quite appreciated how lucky we are not to end up in the belly of a whale whenever we use a search engine! (And maybe I’ll go see where “belly of a whale” lands me…)
Cool. Guess I better post. Thanks WordPress! Ya did it again…
awesome thanks :)
Thank you wp team :)
Excellent, great job guys
likes someone else said – i’m glad i picked wordpress :)
While we’re mentioning search…I would very much like to see an update of the Search widget for our blogs. It never shows results in context and seems very rudimentary. I frequently have to use site: on Google just to find things on my own blog.
Thanks a lot for new feature!
It seems to be working fine for us, especially when people search more:
Is it possible somehow in “WordPress Stats” plugin to show more information about searches that brought people to the wordpress.com blog (at least a search engine)?
Wow, that’s awesome!
Thanks guys! You’re the best team ever! ;D
I JUST started started my blog on wordpress. Looks like I chose wisely. Sounds like a great tool!
this sounds so good! It will definitely boost the number people our blog is able to serve informations. Thanks team!
You’re spoiling us. I love it.
brilliant ! thanks team wordpress!
I like that……i really do
Sweet, thanks. I was wondering how it worked before. I guess it doesn’t matter now.
This is great rocking feature…….
This is great news for me to help me get indexed.
this is great – my other blog is a marketing tool for my other life – thanks hey
Recently I was wondering how come my posts are so fast enough to come in front of the search engine results. I understood that now. Thanks again for your outstanding features, WordPress!
I think it’s really a good feature!!! I publish… you find… GREAT!!!
Wow, works great! Thanks so much!
Search engines are of great use now a days. They are being used commonly by the new generation. WordPress should keep up the good work.
i guess im missing out on what this is. is it a plugin? where do i get it?
This can also mean additional page visits. Like It!
great to hear this,at least my blog can now go places. thanks moses
Thank you, this is a great new feature, great job WP!
Great idea! This will probably help a lot of bloggers getting noticed here on WordPress.
Thanks, that’s very good…
As my blog is very very young, it helps my blog read by others.
Word press has done a good job by introducing one of the best search engine.
One Again, WordPress Had A Good Improvement :)
thanks… I’m stking with WordPress for life!!…
you guys are the best…
“The instant you publish, searchers will see it at the top of the “most recent results” when they search for any terms in your post.”
Not quite true, though I won’t quibble too much with WordPress’s wonderful free service. My recent post on Matthew Macfadyen is not listed in the search engine even though it is tagged properly. There are glitches.
Having said that, people find my posts quickly and my audience is growing. Thank you WordPress.
thank you so much!
what a cool feature! thank you! I can’t wait to play with this.
Yes. This is great. I’m just getting started here and the search engine will definitely help with views
Very nice… I’ve seen some of my posts appear high in Google searches.
Yeah… yay… now they will see my posts and join my ICP woo!
Great idea, WP. Thank you
Nice post. It’s helpful. I will be back for more.
great! now I only wish the related posts, links would appear under my posts… for some reason they don’t even though I didn’t opt them out so they should be there :)
but at least the search engine is renewed and working great :)
its good to know im not just throwing it out to sea
WordPress team: you are the best!
Liking it for real.
Great idea because my blogs are the best ;-)
Thanks Word Press!
Cool, that mean people will fast find my blog. I love this feature, Thanks so much.
Nice. Come check mine out…I’m just getting started!
Word press….that’s, that’s….very good…..
I never knew wordpress has its own search engine. I wonder if people use it to see my blog.
Thank you Andy.
Kudos, WordPress gods.
thanks for everything…i love it!
I want to create a account with wordpress.
Totally awesome. Thanks for the excellence.
Cool feature, thanx! I love WP! :)
Thank you very much!
I like your mustache. :-)
My blog is less than a month old, I hope it help.
On the contrary, I like old posts. They’re not any less true, catchy or relevant than the present ones. I’m hoping I get a comment on my blog months after I write something. It gives the feeling that things you did in the past matter to the world.
Not only beautiful, but functional, too!
Thanks for the constant improvements on the “behind-the-scenes” tools to make our visitor experience just as great as ours.
