      I have coupons and deal site. I am looking for a person who have exp. in this niche and can help me if I am doing it right or can mention steps to be taken by me to improve. I am not looking for any spoon feeding. I am just looking for expert advise to get going.

    I've ran a couple of coupon code sites (sold them on now) and written lots of content for different coupon code sites on Copify.

    What I would say is that most of the successful one's are all doing the same thing - optimising pages for the typical brand + 'discount', 'coupon codes' and 'discount codes' search terms. That way, they're already getting ready to buy traffic.

    In addition to that, some are using PPC to brand bid on discount code terms. In actual fact, this method isn't always as competitive as you'd expect.

    It's a competitive SEO market so your pages will not only need to be well optimised on site, you'll also need a good off page strategy.

    Looking at your site, the pages look terribly optimised.

    For example, I clicked on a Groupon coupon code on your site and it didn't even have 'Groupon' in the URL, Title or page Description. Just some generic text about 'get $25 off $100 - PickPanda'. That's not going to get any search traffic... Surely you want to rank for terms like 'money off Groupon', 'save $25 on Groupon voucher' etc... So you'll need those in the title.

    PickPanda shouldn't be in the title of any page on your site except the homepage. By having it on every page, it's diluting the quality of the title for SEO purposes.

    I also Clicked on the main Papa Johns page and the title was 'Papa Johns Archive' - surely this isn't the keyword you want to optimise this category page for? What does it even mean? Surely you want to optimise for Papa Johns Vouchers or something like that (Just off the top of my head, I haven't done the keyword research).

    IMO, what you need isn't a mentor, it's to learn how to do keyword research and execute SEO efficiently. It's going to take time because you're not going to get any organic traffic with the current optimisation - only direct traffic. But at least you have the basis of a decent site to work with.

    My two pennies...

      Thanks, But in coupon site generally there is not much content in coupon post. So should I need to optimize each and every coupon post? If so then how can I do this.

        You could optimise the category pages (ie Papa Johns) for the main Papa Johns coupon / discount code terms. From my experience, there's usually around 500 words of content on these page, along with a good internal linking strategy.

        The individual coupons don't need to be optimised, however by failing to do the most basic optimisation on them, you could miss out on long tail terms. So i'd at least include the offer (including the vendor name) in the key areas.

        Cheers,

        Nick

    Instead of optimizing all coupon post you should focus on most valuable, profitable and those which have long term durability, means that optimizing those coupons which have long time to be expired will helps and build good organic value.
