My blog doesn’t show up in Google
# January 18, 2013 at 7:16 pm
Hello, a month ago I started a new personal [site](http://marshallford.me/). The unique thing about this blog is that is run off of [Jekyll](https://github.com/mojombo/jekyll) a static content generator.
The issue is after I wrote a pretty popular (for my standards) blog post and after a week of full of views (5000!) and plenty of tweets including one from [Chris](https://twitter.com/chriscoyier/status/290158555502374912), I still can’t find my post by copying and pasting the title in Google or even my name followed by “web design”. Something isn’t working. I have a sitemap with my posts and homepage. Yet I don’t exist. Does it take that long for Google to index my site? I have submitted my link to Google and wrote meta descriptions and keywords for every post.
Previously I wrote a WordPress blog that got maybe 20 views a day, but a day after I published something I could find my post by typing my title or even just the first part and my site would show up on the first page.
Does WordPress do something that I don’t with Jekyll?# January 19, 2013 at 6:02 am
You have 9 indexed pages on that site according to [my search](http://www.google.se/#q=site:marshallford.me)
I can’t find too many people linking to your site, though, which might be influencing your lower ranking.
When I search for Marshall Ford Web Design you show up there, but fairly low.
