Just a quick question - why doesn't my wikia come up in a google search? It's been operational for over 10 days? Is it something you just have to be patient about? The wiki in question is —This unsigned comment is by Dors.venabili (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Which wiki do you edit on? Would you be able to provide a link? The 888th Avatar (talk) 04:26, January 11, 2012 (UTC)
Raising your SEO takes time. Google works with links. The more different places link to your wiki, the higher your google ranking will be.--GodPray  04:30,1/11/2012 
Without knowing which wiki you're talking about (it's not showing up on your user masthead), the best thing you can do is to try and get other sites to link to you, whether it's related wikis or other sites on the same topic that you'd want to try to affiliate with. It's also very important to have as much high-quality content as possible.
Some smaller tips would be to make sure your wiki has a subject-related name that people will find when they search for keywords. Alter MediaWiki:Pagetitle to include important keywords for your topic. In some cases it can take months for Google to pick up on your wiki and give it an appropriate ranking, so you can make it catch it faster by sending the URL to Google here. ʞooɔ
