Hi,

I have a website where I review Amazon products.

I have good and exclusive articles, good internal SEO and no errors.

A few days ago I started to work on the backlinks.

The number of visitors since the site was created is 8!!!

    It will be very useful if you ca provide the url of the site for us to analyze and evaluate the website. Does the site pages answers your target audience? How good is your created content? What kind of SEO do you implemented? It seems that your website is not ranking in the search results.

    Your SEO techniques are either poor or they dont work. Share your site url so we can check it out. 8 visitors is not encouraging

        No mystery here. This is an example of Google's algorithm working exactly as it should. The site doesn't deserve to rank. Plain and simple.

        Not having backlinks isn't helping either, but you would never make a sale even if you did have traffic.

        Either hire a writer (a good one, not some crappy writer from Fiverr or some junk like that) to rewrite all of the content, or dump this site and create a new one, in your native language instead.

        I would probably go with the second option. There will be people that tell you to "keep working hard" and "never give up". They are just lying to you. You really should give this site up and start over.

    What kind of backlinks are you building? If spam links, you might as well not do anything.

    What i suggest is keep writing content, and look for anyone in your niche for guest post and have a link back to your site.

    Hope this help

    You need to make On-Page changes before all of that. Relevant title, description. Find keywords for your niche and start putting some in your articles (not too much, however). Backlinks is good but your main goal is to find audience to your website. So take a step back and find main source of your *possible* consumers. For example, you can find Amazon-related forums. Also, Unbox Therapy forums idk. If you really have different articles you think everyone would enjoy you can even post here! (but no spamming please)

    I guess i haven`t covered all the questions up but i hope you get the point

    Also, as deepakrajput said, effective SMM can also help. Not generic link posts, however. You need to interest your reader, find (again) relevant niches.

    The best way to have a starting point would be also finding competitors - just find who are you fighting against. Find big guys and small ones (that make unique content and you see real people in comments). Youtube search on keyword basis can help with that. There you will most definitely find a blog etc

    You can find also Web 2.0 blogs with generic or unique content. Keep it to unique ones and you can find trusted traffic to come to you. (keyword+"site:blogspot.com or wix.com or etc. You know that websites)

    Keep in mind, you need to expand your online visibility as much as you can. Facebook group, Google+, Youtube is really great way to find someone. Twitter, IG - you can start it from the beginning or after gathered some people for their better awareness. Get their emails, make some email marketing research and send them (weekly, for example) your top 3 reviews).

    A lot of work needs to be done here. I`m not talking about UX ,UI and design of your website assuming you have the best one. Overall, the time you could reach to someone just posting relevant content has been long gone.

    This is really a pretty pointless thread. Without knowing the URL, nobody can tell the OP what the problem is and spouting a whole bunch of generic SEO advice isn't accomplishing a thing.

    Of course, more than likely, since we have not heard from the OP since the original question (his 2nd whole post under a super generic Roger94 pseudonym), this was just a fake question posted with a fake account so that his other affiliated persona could spam the forum with "advice", thinking there is some sort of point in getting their nofollowed signature link in an answer.

    ^^^ what Mike said.
    Google and other search engines got this one right; the site is poorly written useless junk and not only won't rank, it will never rank.

    And BTW, if Amazon manually check your site, they will ban you for non-compliance with their terms and conditions (check the bit on using images from Amazon)

        You should get your $5 back.

        And make sure you leave them some lousy reviews so others don't get tricked into buying that kind of crap.

          I don't know if I'd agree with that. If you only paid $5.00, you got exactly what you paid for. Anyone who thinks they are going to get high quality writing for $5.00 is fooling themselves. Put a zero behind that 5 and you have a much better chance of getting something passable.

          Unfortunately, most of the people who are paying for someone to write for them cannot write (in English, at least) and don't realize how horrible the writing is that they are buying.

            I understand you are not going to get good writing in most cases for $5 unless you know where to look, and it certainly is not Fiverr.

            However, I'm sure the seller did not advertise for "unreadable gibberish that barely passes for English" either. I would bet their offered something much more high quality than what they got. For that reason, I would want a refund.

              Yeah, I get that. But you see it here on the forum constantly. People who can't even put three grammatically correct sentences together lecturing people on the importance of quality content. Bad writers don't even know that they are bad writers

              I guarantee you that you will get nothing even close to what I consider quality writing (which includes research on the topic you are writing about) for $5 ANYWHERE. We may have totally different perspectives on what we consider as quality writing, though.

              Some degree of due diligence needs to be done before you decide to hire someone who claims to be able to write. Did the OP get writing samples from the person before hiring them? Did they give them a test to see how well they perform on a sample writing topic?

              If you don't do that before hiring people to write - especially for a whopping five whole dollars - you deserve what you get. And seriously, it is $5.00. If you can't chalk that up as a lesson learned, you really have no chance at succeeding at anything in this business.

                I'll disagree with that. While they are few and far between, if you know where to look you can find writers who write extremely well, including research, for between $5-10 per article.

                You won't find them in the U.S. and you usually won't find them in the Far East.

                They won't write a scientific grade research paper at that price, but they'll write content as good as you find at a place like Wikipedia.

                But newbies shouldn't go looking hoping to find one of these writers. Just spend the money for a quality writer.

                  I guess my biggest concern is that many of the people hiring writers do not have the English language abilities to determine if what they have bought is good or bad writing, so they'll never really know that they have been ripped off.

                  So, a very good rule of thumb if you do not possess a full grasp of the English language is stay away from cheap Fiverr writers. The odds are extremely bad that what you buy there will be top-notch.

    This is a review site. I think you should write other helpful articles to attract more visitors. You are only looking for the buyers but you should get more readers that will convert into buyers.
    You have done SEO perfectly, you said that.
    But SEO is a big issue. For you, Keyword is really important.
    Find the great keywords using SEMRush and Google Keyword Planner.
    Maintain On Page SEO properly, optimize your title and other SEO issues.
    You will get enough traffic if you do everything properly. It takes time.

    I've been following this conversation and have to ask... How important are backlinks?

    If I buy a site/domain from someone else and it comes with a bunch of backlinks, is that worth paying more? I have my eye on a domain that has about 1200 backlinks already but I dont know if they are spammy or not. Does it hurt or help?

    Hi roger,
    In my experience, Social media is the biggest platform to get a lot of traffic. If you wanted to take the only visitor for your website, then you start Social Media Marketing. And if you wanted to take your website rank?, then you start SEO on your website. If you do that properly. I hope you will get much traffic.
    have a nice time.
