Question The Wordpress community

I have a self-hosted WPbusiness blog, and a personal wordpress.com blog. The .com blog gets "likes" from other WP bloggers because it's apart of the community. I believe that there is now a way self-hosted blogs can be integrated with this and found in WP searches and tags.
Does anyone know how to do this?

Jetpack has something in my panel that says "Connected to Wordpress.com" and then I have the option to disconnect from Wordpress.com; however I don't see anything relating to getting traffic from the WP community.

hey, well he didn't quite figure it out 100% like we thought. I realized I show up in the Reader because I'm following my blog, that is some progress though. But I still won't show up for other people when they click on a tag I have used.

So I still haven't had time to ask on Wordpress myself, but I did find this suggestion from their support forums: WordPress › Support Posts not showing up in reader

we're going to try and do what poster #3 did and see if that works.

Okay, I am no techie. Ignore everything I posted above. I let my husband read where I got that code from and he said I'm talking about 2 completely different things. That's an RSS feed code above, and has nothing to do with connecting to WP.com. At this time I don't think it's possible to connect the 2 but I read they are working on it.

I hope they figure out how hosted blogs can get
traffic from the community as well. I have a .com
blog too that is already in the search engines and
comes up on page 1 for my keywords. But my
hosted blog, (the one in my siggy), doesn't show
up anywhere except where I've advertised it.

Right now, i'm sort of maintaining both with the
same content, until my hosted blog gets noticed
by the SE's.

Adrianne,
I agree. I read some developer say they are working on it. That post was made about a year ago. I do believe the process has begun with Jetpack because my .org says I'm connected to .com. I would like to be able to maintain both blogs and let the .com drive traffic to the .org but it's so difficult.
