Wordpress Blog Traffic

Hey Warriors, I had a few questions that I hope you can help me out with.

My website has been launched for almost one month now, and I have almost no traffic, I rank for no keywords although for 15 posts I use low competition keywords and write unique articles consisting of no less than 400 words and all have a good rating by wordpress SEO Yoast, with plenty of backlinks.

Now for my questions...
When did you blog start to receive traffic?
after how many posts did your blog receive traffic?
How long did it take you to rank for a certain keyword?

I know all of my questions depend on many factors, but I want to get a general idea, nothing is more painful than writing articles that no one reads/finds.

    What is your blog?

    First thing you need to do is publish quality content on your blog. There are free simple methods to build traffic. Start with them.

    01. Guest blogging
    02. Social media
    03. Blog commenting
    04. Forum posting
    05. Directory Submission.
    06. Article marketing

    If you do above methods in right way, you will receive 500 visitors per day.

    It's going to take time and consistency to see traffic from organic search. In the meantime, try looking for other ways to draw traffic to your blog to help you stay motivated when you log in to check your analytics reports.

    One thing I question is the fact that you say these posts have plenty of backlinks, but that the blog has only been launched for a month. I won't speculate as to what types of link building you're using, but just remember that there are certain ways of building backlinks that aren't going to do you any favours if your goal is to get in good with Google.

    I've seen blogs in the past start receiving organic search traffic in a matter of days, and I've also had some that took months and months. I have no specific data to point to the difference maker, but the one thing I can tell you for certain, is that from an organic search standpoint, the one that did the best, the fastest, (which reviewed musical instruments) had buy far the most consistent content creation schedule.

    Just keep on writing. I know it isn't a sexy process, but consistently putting out high quality content is the best way to go. It might not be fast, but in the end, the traffic that it generates will be far more sustainable than any gimmick.

      Create really helpful videos on YouTube that really have useful content that will help someone.

      Then tell them to click the link in the description that leads to your site will more helpful info etc..

      You'll need to do 20 to 100 videos over time to really rock it. Don't do ONE video and say, oh, I only get 10 people to my site per day that's not worth it.

      You may need to do 20 to see what your averages really are.

      In a big niche you can get thousands per month per video to your site on average.

      Then build your list.

    Why don't you share your articles on social media? Create a facebook page or a twitter account, then join groups/follow people and post updates linking to your articles.

    Also don't try to write articles specifically for any keywords, because your article will read like rubbish and you don't want that....Forget about search engines and Google - just write for your readers, pure genuine content and you'll soon start gaining real visitors.

    Thank you all for the advice, as for my backlinks I built some on my own and I purchased a few pr6-10 backlinks, which might sound like a bad idea, but the I got proof of the links and they seem fair enough since I paid $5

    again, thanks for all your feedback and suggestions!!!!!

      Backlinks come and go. It's a never-ending game that you will NOT win, but only spend money on links, which will work temporarily and then disappear.

      Focus your efforts on your content and your own traffic generation (forums, blogs, commenting, etc), rather than waiting for Google to rank you.

    All the posts are on a consistent topic/niche?

    How many searches per month does Google report for those low competition keywords?

    How competitive is the market, now just the keywords?

    You need to switch from waiting for search engine traffic, and start focusing on driving traffic, LJBlake gave you a great list and Enfusia's plan is solid, too.

    Your rankings will increase as you produce more content in other areas that point back to your blog, and as more people share your content.

    Don't wait for the SEO to kick in, because it may never happen if you wait.

    You've never had kidney stones.


    Here's a secret that so many blog owners never understand.

    Blog posting, by itself, is not enough. Blog post distribution to your targeted audience is what is critical. If you don't promote, you're going to languish in obscurity forever.

    Don't say you haven't been warned. It makes all the difference.

    You have to drive traffic to your blog like you would any other website. In the same way that there is "off-page SEO" and "on-page SEO".... there is "on-page blogging" and "off-page blogging" - when it comes to traffic generation. The easiest option would be to spend some money on advertising to drive traffic to your blog. Are you selling products on there that could help you to recoup your money back quickly after people buy from you?

    Just putting up an article and expecting traffic to come is not a good strategy.

    You shouldn't be worrying about ranking for keywords through backlinks, you should be focused on generating traffic. If you make traffic your focus not keyword ranks you will see much more success and also indirectly drive higher quality backlinks pointing to your site.

    This is assuming however that you have good content. To do this study authorative sites within your market and see what content they create.

    Since they are already an established site, they already know what kind of content drives traffic and what doesn't.

    Don't make the mistake
    of basing you content from search engine keyword searches. This will counter-intuitively actually make you less likely to drive traffic to your sites in the long run.

    I started a new website on the 15th of this month and started getting search engine traffic for product-related keywords that my site was about on the 18th, so 3 days. For this site, I only had the main product-review page and the normal pages you'd expect to see (about, privacy policy, etc). I've gotten clicks from it but no sales as of yet -- hoping that will change over the weekend. Oh, I should also mention that I don't promote this site to a list of any kind. However, the fastest I've made money from a site like this has been 12 days.

    1. traffic will automatically come when you post something relevant and unique content.
    2. traffic will come on the same day when you start posting.
    3. it will take time. or i can say at least 2-3 months.

    Wordpress blog is definitely create a huge audiences and traffics but when and why ? Your blog content should be updated on based on latest traffic. Putting just content that is not good way but you must update with content day by day . no duplicate and copy content allowed . people must learn something new from the content.
