New Channel not showing up in search

Hi, I have a new channel that was approved today for public view. I can find it when I browse to the "fitness" category but it's invisible to search. How long does it take to be indexed and appear in search?

Re: New Channel not showing up in search

Did you add keywords? Are you searching for the title? What is the channel so I can test this?

Thank you. Yes, I added keywords. The channel is "Heart Alchemy Yoga"

web store finds it:
https://channelstore.roku.com/search/heart+alchemy+yoga

PS. It was published 5/19 11:30am, you complained 12:25 pm. Next time maybe give it a few hours first - for content distribution - before worrying?

Re: New Channel not showing up in search

It's now showing up on the Roku device Search when I search for "Heart", "Yoga", or "Alchemy".

As an aside, I see the web Channel Store is still a mess. When I look for your channel under the "Fitness" category, I see it listed at the end, and tagged with "Fitness" in the details, as I would expect. However, each time I go to the "Fitness" section at https://channelstore.roku.com/browse/fitness I see something completely different, many times seeing channels that have nothing to do with fitness. Last time I noticed that the first 24 channels were all kids' cartoon channels, then the yoga channels were listed below. The time before that, the Fitness category had the yoga channels interspersed with News and International channels.
