Cannot find my studio or game in the search result

Hi, I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but it's not possible to find either my studio (Studio Malaka) or my just released game (Wood 'n Stones) in any search result. The pages are correctly up (like https://studio-malaka.itch.io/wood-n-stones).

Do you have any hint for me?

Best,

Yes. Your game has a price tag attached. That will delay indexing, as explained in the FAQ. As for your creator profile, you don't seem to have one. Make sure you ticked the "Developing and uploading games" checkbox under "Account type" in your account settings.

Thanks for your reply. The checkbox you mentioned is already ticked:

Hey, quick question. Did you read the rules for this board before posting? We ask people to do something in their post if they are having trouble finding their game. I’m just curious because we’re trying to get people creating less duplicate topics.

Regarding searching for your studio name, that will only appear in search once you have at least one game indexed, it doesn’t have anything to do with the account type check boxes mentioned above. Hope that helps.

Thanks

Thank you very much for your reply. To answer your question: yes, I did read it. I was confused because the game page was marked as public since several weeks now, and I though it was enough for having the game indexed. Indeed, I uploaded the game files only yesterday for the first time, because it was the planned release day.

Thanks again,
