    Here are the various reasons why you are not getting that massive traffic you always wished to. After reading through this little piece I made for my fellow BHW members, you would not only know the reasons, but how to avoid this wrong things, so that you can get that Search Engine Traffic you Deserve.

    Reason #1: You are Not Writing Popular Topics
    A research into Adwords Keyword tools would give you a statistics on how how much keywords are search. With this, you can be able to know popular topics to write about, and this would improve your chances of getting search engine traffic.

    Reason #2: You Do not Submit Your Sitemap to Search Engines
    Sitemaps are just road maps for search engine bot. Submitting your blogs sitemap to search engines would help search engine bots to crawl your blog, and in turn help in quick indexing of your blog.

    Reason #3: You Don't Have your Keyword in Your Titles
    keywords are really what people are searching, if you can put say three of the keywords you are targeting into the title of your blog post, it would help your blog to appear in search engines for those keywords.

    Reason #4: You Post Content are Too Short
    Content is King they say. Search Engines like Google love quality content, writing a short article isn't what they likely need, as Search Engines want to deliver quality results to their users.

    Reason #5: You are Not Making Keyword Research
    the Google Keyword Tools is a great tool as I said earlier. Using it would expose you to a lot of most searched keywords to write about.

    Reason #6: Relying On SEO Softwares
    SEO is not all about Softwares. You have your on SEO activities to make on your blog. Work hard on your On-Page and Off-Page SEO. It would pay off in the long run.

    Reason #7: You are Not Linking Articles
    Linking to authority websites is a way of letting search engines know you are a legit and trust worthy site. It would build you trust on their parts. Also interlinking your articles is also a great SEO tactics.

    Reason #8: You are Not Optimizing Your Images
    You have to optimize your image names and alt tags. Someone might search for an image, if your image appears, it can lead the user to your blog.

    Reason #9: Your Blog is Not Yet Indexed
    If you are not getting search engine traffic, it is likely that your blog is not indexed. Try searching your blog on google. If it isnn't indexed, submit your sitemap to google to let them know you are around.

    Reason #10: Your Posts are Not ShareAble
    If your posts are not been shared on social bookmarking or social sites, there is a high probability that it would not rank highly on search engines. This was made known by from an article I read from Branded3

    This are the Various Reasons, Search Engines Like Google won't give you traffic,. Try to Optimize your blog and you would see the massive Search Engine Traffic you would Gain in the Nearest future.....

    I hope you can implement this tips and you would in less than no time get that search engine traffic you've been longing for.

    Great summed up facts.

    Also, for those who lack any traffic, is because they usually lack basic checks of proper title and description meta tags, good site menu structure, the use of H1 and H2 tags and other small things from basic SEO that counts.

    And, if the loading time of your website is high then there is a possibility that you are not getting enough search engine traffic.

    SERP=Search Engine Results Page

    When you type in a search term in Google, Yahoo, or Bing, the page that returns a list of the top 10-15 sites is the SERP.

    How long it takes your web page to load has an effect on high Google places you in the search results. They are not going to put a site with maybe some great content that has a 2.4 MB picture that wasn't optimized and take 37 seconds to load. Google's goal is to provide the best user (searcher) experience possible, and slow loading times will make someone either click back to the search page frustrated or go to Bing to see if they can get better results.

    There are sites out there that let you type in your url and it tells you loading speed item by item.
