As a Rainer (a free account) your posts are not visible to Google searches, so you will not be found outside of Active Rain.

In order to be found by those using a Google search, you need to have a Rainmaker account which as of today is $39/month, or $199/year, until/unless you reach 500,000 points, at which time it becomes gratis.

I just searched for you in the ActiveRain search bar and I see what  you mean. It might be for the reason Alan May provided - although I didn't realize that impacted searches within ActiveRain as well.

Hi Rochelle and welcome to the Rain! I followed you and noticed you have a Rainer account. This means that everything you post is only shared within this platform - not publicly. So, until you have a Rainmaker account (500K points or pay for the service), you will not be visibly publicly unless you share links to specific posts you write on your website or social media.

Hope that makes sense and good luck!

I see some good answers for you. I recommend paying for the Rainmaker account so your posts are public until you reach that magical 500,000 points and your account is free!

It is what is referred to as we have to "pay to play" Rochelle Roesler 

We need a paid account. When we reach 500,000 points the account is FREE.

The experts have weighed in. I do find you when I search Active Rain. My question to you was going to be, where are you searching. You'll definitely want to pay the fee then blog like your life depends on it.

my free account comes up in a AR search, just tried it.  However my posts are not public because I don't have a paid account and google doesn't know my posts/comments exist.  Maybe when I retire from my day job or maybe not, just will depend on what life brings when that happens, still a few years down the road.

Not spelling it right? No, that's not it. Dario Ferreira  gave the correct answer with his raised hand shout out Rochelle Roesler . Pinging your post did not hurt helping it get traction either.

Things happen quick but evidently not that instantaneous in Google.
