How to make my blog appear in Google search?


Date: 23 Jan 2015    Group: Blogging and Websites    Category: Blogger Blogging Platform   

I have recently started a blog on blogspot. The problem is that even if I type the entire blog name or article title in Google search box, there is no trail of my blog in search results. My blog is about my views. I have seen that other simple blogs (without Adsense or SEO) appear on typing the blog name, then why is it that my blog is nowhere? Is it that there should be a certain number of minimum articles on your blog for it to be visible in Google search? Please suggest.
