Why your photos don't appear when searching on Flickr

I've just created a Flickr account! I'm planning to upload most of the photos that I've previously made available over at free-photo-gallery.org under the Creative Common Attribution license.

Anyway, after uploading my first photo, I wanted to make sure it appeared when searching. But no matter how detailed searches I made, the photo refused to appear in the search results. After some googling I found this in the Flickr FAQ:

If your account is new, first you need to upload at least 5 photos. After that minimum has been reached, then it shouldn't take more than a few days until your photos appear in searches, groups, etc.
5 photos uploaded now, hope to see them appear soon.
