Chris, a quick search using a snippet from your last post turns up the result on your own web site.  Assuming you post on your own site first, Google may very well see ActiveRain as duplicate content for you and not index the blog posts.  With all your posts also on your own site, Google may see nothing original here to record.

Sounds like Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573 and Bob Crane have great suggestions. Good luck!

Examine the posts, study SEO and your blog post subject matter and as for Google indexing. The big G has trillions of pages to index. It's not AR dock workers loading them up on a conveyor belt for shipment causing the problem Chris Ivy .

It is frustrating.
Expecting a outcome in a process in which we have very little control  is incredibly frustrating.

Your blogs are well written but quality is NOT what Google uses to present data to users. What does Google use?
#1. The users history. For example a user who has never read anything about real estate on their search engine will not be presented with anything from Active Rain. It is really incumbant upon you to know what your potential user is searching and get in front of them.
#2. What does Google like in regards to feeding the Mother Ship?  VIDEO. Yep, itis a lot more work but VIDEO means you will get the #1 AND the #2 search engines working for YOU.
#3. Google likes those who dance to their tune. That means the blog title, the subject line, the first paragragh and thourghout the blog the words shown in the key words and tags must appear REPEATEDLY.
#4. The echo chamber. Having links from your AR blog to a FB post and/or WordPress Blog create the authority big G likes. These also serve as feeders to the lead capture apparatus you have created. I suggest that AR should NOT be your PrimeTime lead capture system.  As you are noticing, at this time, AR website is a bit problematic.

Take some of what I have shared to heart and start with modifying the text, title, subject and tags to repeat/validate the post and make big G smile.Then consider how to leverage INTRO video to get the biggest bang for your effort investment.
PS: the best way to get AR technical support attention is tagging ARMS in your Question.

I think that it if totally up to google as to when and if they are going to give you a good ranking.

I just post tons of stuff and some makes it to the top and others do not.

Chris Ivy - if you are copying and pasting your website posts to AR that could be why - G sees it as duplicate.  I suggest you change the title up, change up the intro, only copy a paragraph or so, then leave it as read the full post [enter the title on your website] and link it.

how do you know that? ARMS suggested what it might be. Where do you want the draw to be? Here or your site.

I see ARMS answered your question the same way I would have. I was going to ask you if you do what I do sometimes (copy and paste from your website). Your AR post is, essentially punished for the duplicate content.

I believe the best way to do this is to post an 'intro' blurb (100 or so words long) about your post on your website - not copying the content. Then add a link back to your website for the full article. One of our most prominent bloggers did this with great success (Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Realtor Top 1%). Here's a link to an example of one of her posts.

Good luck, Chris!

I might be wrong here, but I don’t think that Chris is complaining about his posts not ranking well on Google, rather than they aren’t even being indexed in Google. Big difference there. If it’s the former, than all of the advice given here makes sense and is valid. If it’s the latter, I would understand the frustration.

I pay no attention to that, I do pay attention to where my biz comes from, and Google is not it!  A

I don't put emphasis on posts here, as the SEO has diminished over the last few years.   Post on your site first, get it ranked there, then post here.
