    1) Is there a good market for these things? Maybe you need to focus on a sub-niche? What are the keywords used in Google among people interested in this field?

    2) What is the competition? How would you compare to it? Are your posts/ articles more original, authoritative and interesting than the competition?

    3) Eventually, you may be able to choose the path of paid promotion: Facebooks Ads, AdWords, Bing Ads, Solo Ads, etc.

    ____

    A) More specifically, if I quickly take a look at your blog, I don't immediately understand the purpose of your blog. You should put a logo and a slogan that clearly explain the mission of your website.

    B) Your site looks complicated. It is not well organized. This is not simple and clear.

    C) Your website is too slow.

    Try to work on the points I have just mentioned. Good luck!

    Most successful blogs that I am familiar with are tightly niched.

    You blog is all over the map with many broad topics. You try to appeal to everyone and it backfires so you appeal to no one.

    I also read half a dozen of your posts. Every one is "whitewash" meaning there is no in-depth, new, or unique information in the post. Most have three or four general statements with a link to Google and a suggestion to find the details somewhere else. This is a lazy approach and it makes your blog easy to leave . . . in fact, you are encouraging your readers to go elsewhere.

    One other comment. It takes time for a new blog to get traction. You can't expect to get noticed immediately. And if your blog doesn't engage the reader at all, they are going to click away very fast.

    Don't be a quitter!!! Losers quit

    How long ago did you start your blog? Do you have analytics and webmaster tools set up? Go to google and type your domain in quotes and make sure your indexed and not black listed but I don't see why you would unless you have backlinks coming from someplace you shouldn't

    Sven300 gave some important tips regarding the structure of your blog. But that still doesn't help you get traffic to your blog. If you are very knowledgeable regarding your niche, you might consider creating videos of value and posting them on youtube. Then after giving value to your visitors, give them a 'call to action' telling them to visit your blog (and why).

    The solution is simple.

    Follow an 80/20 Rule.

    This means you should only spend 20% of your time creating high quality content for your blog - and spend the 80% of your time promoting the heck out ofpromr blog and blog posts.

    You do not need to be publishing new blog posts on your blog too often. In fact, most successful bloggers today can tell you they only published from 2 to 4 blog posts a month while building up their audience (traffic).

    High Quality Content is very important - YES.

    But you don't need a lot of it in order to get your new blog off the ground.

    If you already have 3 to 6+ high quality blog posts published (they have to be EPIC blog posts for the audience in your niche) - you should not publish more content until you drive at least 500+ visitors to each one of those blog posts.

    You get what I mean?

    Set a 'Traffic Goal' for each one of your blog posts. Every time you publish a new blog post do whatever it takes to drive as much traffic as possible to it before you start the next one.

    There are many ways to drive traffic to a blog post online. You just have to take the time to learn the strategies and implement them until you get results.

    We all have to put in the massive work to promote our blog posts. There are no shortcuts. Just make sure you do things in a smart way.

    I highly recommend you to implement this 80/20 rule.

    This will help ya a lot!

    Do not give up!

    You are making it happen. I can tell

    Setbacks are the most valuable and powerful lessons.

    Keep at it. Keep learning. Keep implementing. And keep moving forward no matter what.

    You'll get there

    Have you got in touch with influencers to share on your blog or do a special guest post? There are an array of reasons why your blog may not be getting any traffic... have you had a chance to survey any of your visitors to get an idea of what they are after and if you are delivering it. Building a blog doesn't automatically guarantee you will get traffic, I agree you need a niche and provide engaging and entertaining content that can;t be readily found elsewhere... do you specialise in a home and garden style that is unique or different, or are you being more general... once you find your niche and your audience get a taste for content they are after your following will grow. I would heavily analyse your competition and get a really good idea of what they do well and what their followers like. I would be heavily communicating with your followers to get an understanding of what they want... I agree you need to add a tag line and a sentence to provide a better understanding of what solution your blog provides ie. Home and Garden Advice for the Modern Dwelling... or Tips and ideas for creating a self sufficient kitchen garden... these are just examples but you get the idea..

    There are a lot of reasons why your blog may not be working. It's all about trial and error, and that's how business is. One strategy might work for one business and another might not work for another. What you need to know is what works for your audience.

    What's probably missing is your target market, it's not clearly defined. I saw your site and it looked cluttered, there's so much ideas in one site. This can work when you are already established. One way to target your market is to know what you represent.

    Who is your audience? Men? women? kids? parents? What's their status? Is your site for married women? women with kids? Single women?

    Answering these questions will give you an insight on what you might be doing wrong. These questions are just the tip of the iceberg and it does take time for some people to know and understand what direction they need to go.

    There are lots of English mistakes in the content. A native speaker would never return to your site a second time unless there was something absolutely amazing and unique. Which there isn't atm.

    Hey Pooja,

    You can get traffic to your blog by posting in blogs and forums in similar niche with backlink to your site. Google Alerts is an easy way of finding sites in the same niche. It works well for me and should work for you as well.

    I understand that you have done a lot with your blog. You bought a premium theme, published regularly and SEO is something which makes anybody crazy.

    I agree with Sven300. He has said it all. You must consider his advice.

    I went to your blog article "why-do-married-couples-fight-so-much" and there you have banners of Linen's n curtains. Somebody having a relationship issue may come to your blog and find the information helpful, but why would they click on that banner and buy linen curtains. It makes no sense. You must monetize it with "relationship advice" products.

    Think from the visitor's point of view.

    And please don't give up.

    Keep Improvising till it works.

    Good Luck

    --Need to check in Google about whether it's proper indexed or not.
    --Did you check Webmaster and Analytics tools for the Blog?
    --The keywords which you choose are proper for your competition?
    --Does your content is interesting to read? it's niche based?

    Make sure about the Blog Content,Loading time and Tools to verify the important factors of traffic.

    Make sure you are doing proper keyword research!

    I have seen this mistake too many times. If you are targeting keywords that are too competitive you will more than likely not rank.

    Try and go after low competition long tail keywords that are related to your website.

    That would be a great way of funneling in visitors to your website.

    Provide some interesting contents about your niche. If your contents are special then it brings you more visitors.
    Make your social accounts as good engagement and share your contents over there to get the traffic.
    Do some guest posts from the high authority websites which are relevant to your niche, that will also bring you the good amount of traffic.

    Understand Your Audience

    Your target audience. If you are able to understand your target audiences wants and needs you will be able to put yourself in the position to provide relevant information and value for your audience. Not understanding your target audience within your chosen niche can be disastrous.

    By researching the market you will be able to communicate on a empathetic level, bringing an element of trust to your relationship. This will help build a name for yourself within your niche and will build your status as an authoritative figure to your followers for which they will be able to rely on for high quality, well researched information.

    Remember to make sure that you pick a niche in which you are passionate about so you can connect on an emotional level and remember that your audience are real people.

    You want to be aiming for valued relationships. If you were a customer of your own blog, would you tell your friends about it? What makes you different form the rest.

    Next you will want to get involved with social media sites, forums and blogs where your potential audience will be hanging out. Build your knowledge and find out what kind of questions your target audience are asking. These are the what your blog posts should be about.

    Captivating Headlines

    You may already be writing some great blog posts, but without a captivating, magnetic headline, no-one is going to want to read it. You want to hook people!

    You need to find out what makes people tick, and get them salivating.

    The best way in which I found to do this as a beginner is simple. It’s emulating the pros that you’re already following. Which are the headlines that REALLY stand out. That make you want more. Take note and analyse. Be intrigued. Look on similar blogs that are doing well and just take note. Sam Walton who started Walmart spent 90% of his time in competitor stores... He was the richest man in the world at time. Always keep up to date with what your competitors are doing. So as i said, emulate the best.

    Always deliver on what you promised. If you say you are going to give great advise about creating traffic to your blog posts… Then that better be what you provide. This won’t only just get your target audience to read your blog, but also increase sign-up and conversion rates.

    Formatting

    So you’ve created some awesome content that you know your well researched audience are going to love, so you throw it all down and hope it to be read. But they don't hang about for long? Whats the deal?

    The internet has bought the most peoples attention span down to that of a goldfish, no one reads a full post anymore. So remember to keep it short. Get to the point as quickly as you can whilst keeping it interesting, funny and informative.

    You will want to bullet point your key areas or number them, so they can skim through and see your see the quick fire answers they were expecting at hand, or the facts and fundamentals.

    Don’t have your text from one side of the page to the other, look at how a newspaper and how utilises white space and columns for example.
    Use images that are congruent with your text, or videos, these will make your your site visually appealing and memorable.

    Well I hope this helps, if you have any questions and would like to give your input i’d love to hear from you.

    Purchasing a premium theme is not a part of getting traffics or SEO. You have to focus on SEO and do post more backlinks. I purchased a good pack of backlinks from Fiverr from a seller @chrylent and that was a great service. I think you needs some more promotions. . .

    How can I put this gently?

    Your blog sucks.

    (I couldn't figure out a gentle approach, so I went with 'rip the band-aid off'. Sorry.)

    You content is all over the place, and most of it (none that I can see) has anything to do with with buying linens and such. Horoscopes, relationship advice, marketing tips, and more?

    If your titles were better, you might get a few 'clickbait' visits, but there's no reason to return.

    Even the replies here are mostly from people offering generic advice without having actually looked at your blog.

    In your place, I'd keep the design - it's not ugly and it loaded quickly. Then I'd delete ALL of the content. From the mix you currently have, I'm guessing you spent a bit of time with a keyword tool and grabbed a collection of terms with a lot of searches.

    If you really want to sell linens and other home accessories, spend some time figuring out who actually buys the stuff and why. Think about it. If you're looking for your horoscope, are you really thinking about buying a fancy tablecloth and matching napkins? Or would it make more sense to have content on staging a home for sale, setting up housekeeping for newlyweds, or something along that line.

    Think about content that solves problems or adds value to the reader, in the context where clicking through and buying your products are a natural extension in that process.

      Your Site is Looking good and Informative.

      Just go to Reddit and do few min work. Learn from Google.

      Just post a Image in Reddit with imgur link.

      Post that link in FB pages or Group and Increase the Karma to 100

      Then you can edit the image you post and Add your link in the Description.

      Then ???

      Just see the Magic.

        Your URL Format is not Good. Take a Look into it. Google will take time to recognise such URL.

        Try to Remove "Category" from Each pages URL.

        Use the "Keyword" twice or Thrice. in URL (Title) , Meta Description, Paragraph. Use H1, H2 tags for Keyword.

        So that the Google will recognise you soon.

        you can rank in Search Engine.

    I think you are thinking too much about the numbers and that's exactly why you are failing.

    Is your website good enough?
    You have what people want to read?

    Since you have over 7k followers on Facebook with 0 engage and 0 traffic on your website I can clearly see that it's all bullshit, isn't good for your brand. It would be better to have only 100 active followers who really want to check out your stuff rather than 7k fake ghost followers who don't do shit.

    Try Pinterest, Stumbleupon, Facebook group, Google+ communities, Tumblr, etc, they are all popular and your audience is out there just find it.

    Be sure not to think anymore about numbers, if you only care about numbers you will be getting the same results, forget about it completely, forget about followers, subscribers and focus on providing a real experience for your readers. Help them and try your best to be awesome with them, then you can check stats and see how you can scale or make money from it, you are getting addicted to numbers for no reason.

    If you want to make money, forget about making money, that's the only way to make money.

      Hi Nico,
      Thanks for your reply.
      But these 7K fans on facebook are not fake as i am sharing my FB page between two sites and these many fans i got for my site linensncurtains by organic as well as paid FB ads. It took 2 years to gain that much of fans.

      I am sharing my post once published to FB, twitter, and other sites using onlywire.

      I am taking this site seriously since last few months. i hope i have to wait more time to see results.

      Thanks
