Insufficient information. Did you use Wordpress or Blogger? Your own domain or hosted at wordpress.com or blogspot.com?
Have you installed any traffic measurement code, such as Google Analytics?
Established blogs get picked up within minutes. I blogged about a newsworthy event within 30 minutes of hearing it on TV and the post was indexed and searchable within three minutes. As more trustworthy news outlets reported the event, I got pushed to the back.

1. Suitable title, description, keyword tag?
2. Uploaded the blog URL to google?
3. Submit the blog URL to free blog directories.

I have my blog in blogger not wordpress.
I have already submitteed my blog to many free directories and guess what I have 10 backlinks as well (including six PR3 sites, two PR2 sites and one PR1 site and one Not ranked)
I have linked with these sites with same anchor text
My blog is three column and it has got some good design too.
Plus I have written pretty cool stuffs--original content.
Now will google give me PR2 or may be 3?
Also When will the nxt PR update happen?--Please I wanna know this badly.
My current page is not ranked by GOOGLE--grey color on the PR icon in the google toolbar.
Also I would like to ask How much post are required to build a good blog?

Hi John. Don't get hung up about your PR. It's all about traffic so check your logs to see whether the traffic trend is upwards. Also it's not about the number of blog entries you make but the quality of them. In other words you have to have interesting content that people want to read. If you have this then you will gain new incoming links and your traffic will increase. It could be months before the next PR update, so in the meantime keep adding good content.

I am surprised really!
I had recently made a blog-2 months old;), no PR
Good backlinks, cool design, original content, image alts and so on.
I also had won a keyword in the search engines. My blog appeared in the second page of google search when I type that keyword in the search engine. But today when I search the same keyword, I am not seeing my blog upto page 20? What has happened with my blog?
Is this the case that my blog will be appearing in the first page soon or what? Please I wanna knoe the answer badly!

John - Google often has a short "honeymoon" period for a new site, page, or article. There's a current discussion of one such example here....
Week old page ranks no 1 - then disappeared from Google index completely
In the case of your ranking, was the ranking for a specific new article... or was it for the subject of the blog in general? How long were you on the second page before you dropped down?
If the ranking was for a specific article on your home page, it's also possible that as new content appeared on the blog, you changed the emphasis of your home page and thus changed the ranking.

the keyword in the 2nd page was for 3-4 days and today it dropped and i can't even get my blog in the results, what kind of honeymoon is this?;).
what u'r saying-- rankings?
I said no PR! and I haven't published any new content since 2 weeks!
I also heard that Google will update it's database in the end of January--Is it true folks?
| 9:42 am on Dec 31, 2008 (gmt 0)|
I am amazed now!
my blog again appeared in the search results and at the same place of second result and with the same keyword?
What happened actually? Did earthquake came on Google database or what?fff...

I have also logged in to google webmaster tools and on my dashboard I clicked into Links menu. But when I clicked on Pages with external links I see 0 out of 0 and same with the internal links.
But I have backlinked with top quality sites (11 including one 5PR, and so on)
I also didn get PR on last update dec 31 2008
What should I do?
| 4:31 am on Jan 4, 2009 (gmt 0)|
Chill and just write good content instead of micromanaging your blog.

Hey guys, Google just viewed my blog today
Because when I logged into statcounter I saw in the visitor paths:
Mountain View, California, United States, 0 returning visits
Is Google giving me a Pr? What to do in these cases?
Should I update my blog?

Hey everyone, I just bought a Ferrari but I don't have a driver's license yet. Also, it won't start. There's this little gauge that reads FUEL and the needle is to the left of the E, what does that mean?
That is exactly how I felt after reading this.
John_Lee, I feel for you.
| 3:54 pm on Jan 4, 2009 (gmt 0)|
I appreciated your sympathy towards me
I think I should update my blog

|I think I should update my blog. |
Ya, that is probably your best option. Just continue to update it with quality content and forget about the search engines for about 3-6 months, it will happen sooner or later. The more you worry about, the longer it is going to take. Google knows...

Hey there I am from asian country, Nepal
I heard that google updates their database at last for asian countries
Is that right folks?
Could it be the reason that I am getting no Pr
Also I heard that Google gives us PR almost unexpectedly?

Hey there yesterday I logged onto google webmaster tools
I checked onto LInks menu and when I clicked Pages With Internal Links then it showed 220, but before that it would show 0 out of 0
But my Pages with external links is yet 0 out of 0 even though I have got 12 cool PR backward links. One of my bro told me that "u''ll be given PR when your link: http://example.com is visible in google search,i.e; Pages with external PR!
Is the fact true?
Am I gettin PR
Please help me!
any help will be highly and highly appreciated! :D :-)]

John, please read the earlier responses and the information about PR in the Hot Topics area [webmasterworld.com], which is always pinned to the top of this forum's index page.
You will probably not see any PR cahnge on the toolbar until the next time Google exports toolbar data - several months from now most likely. However if you are attracting good backlinks, then your PR is growing behind the scenes at Google.
Now you should give the PR focus a rest and focus on things that matter more - like developing and marketing the blog.

I hadn't use any meta keywords or description in Edit html of Layout menu in blogger
Is this hurting my blog in google search engines?
Now that I know how to put these keyowrds, I have another query!
Can I use different meta tags and description to different blogger posts? If it's possible then how?
Also I would like to ask you Will this (adding different metas) hurt my future rankings in google?
| 5:07 am on Jan 14, 2009 (gmt 0)|
The meta description is intended to be unique for each page. How to use it will depend on your specific blogging platform and that's outside the scope of this forum, which is about Google Search.
In the Hot Topics area [webmasterworld.com], which is always pinned to the top of this forum's index page, there's a section called -- SOME GUIDELINES -- that holds several reference threads about the meta tags and other valuable information. It makes for some very useful study.
