    Hello Emmanuel,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    I assume though that it's that your site doesn't come up in Google search results, is that right?

    I'd suggest that you first logged in into your site as an admin and then go to the "Settings -> Reading" page and make sure that "Search Engine Visibility - Discourage search engines from indexing this site" option is NOT checked.

    If it's not checked and the site is not indexed by Google there'll be a lot more to be done.

    1. Make sure that the sitemap of the site (usually available at yourdomain.com/sitemap.xml) is submitted to Google; to do this you will wan't to create your Google Webmaster account and submit the sitemap there. Here's more info on this:

    2. You'll want to make sure that the site is reach in content:

    3. You may want to take care to gather some quality links (non-reciprocal) to your site; by "quality" links I mean links that
    - come from well indexed, established sites considered by both Gogole and users valuable
    - do not come from sites that are linked by you
    - link to specific content (e.g. articles on your site) related to the topic of a linking sites

    4. Create "social media" profiles for your site, make sure that they are "alive" (and "real", not just a copies of a content from website) and link to your site

    5. What I wrote above are just basics but it should made a good foundations; please however note that it may take Google anytime from just a few minutes to even a few months to get your site indexed. By following above recommendations though you greatly improve chances to get indexed faster and better. There's no guarantees whatsoever though and I think it's important to be aware of this. Neither WordPress nor Google promise getting your site indexed but above steps should help you both - get indexed and get indexed fast.

    Best regards,
    Adam
