    My blog is 4 months old. The niche is domain and hosting. Wordpress platform.

    Since last 4 months, i have added around 50 original SEO Optimized articles . The articles are all researched thoroughly, nicely written and copyscape passed. I am not getting even a single visitor till now. I have done onpage optimizations and link building, but nothing has worked. I just want my articles to be ranked in google and get some traffic out of it.

    Is 50 articles is too little content? Or have i missed anything?

    That's actually pretty strange. You should at least be getting a handful of visitors daily, whether you're building links or not. Check if your website is properly indexed first by doing a Google search for Site:yourdomain.com and see if your site and all those articles come up in the search.

    See the website is listed or not; it could also be blocked by robots.txt. If not then you can how many pages are indexed. Are they containing very competitive keywords or long tail phrases?

    I would like you to tell us your website and we'll see what could be the actual problem.

    nabeelt's advice are sound, except you shouldn't give people your sites for any reason.

    How do you post the content? Do you drip the content?

    Are they indexed completely by Google?

    Do you target highly competitive keywords? In some very tough niche, this happens even if you have 500 articles.

    Really strange ! For that many original optimized articles, you should get atleast few visitors regularly provided all of your posts are indexed in google. Get checked your site by any onpage-seo specialist, probably he can tell you if there's any problem.

    I'd like to checkout your website. It'd be interesting to see why does it not receive visitors.

    Cheers :)

    All 50 articles indexed in Google, Just checked it now again. Nothing is blocked in robots.txt


    Hey audioguy,
    I post 1 article/day manually. I don't Dripfeed the content. The niche is Domain and hosting. The articles are general stuff about Hosting, domains, securing website, etc.

    How many unique visitors do you get daily? Don't hesitate to say zero if that's the case. You seem to be operating in a very competitive niche of hosting and i see it as a big reason for not getting traffic. Is any of your page ranking anywhere in first 2,3 pages or results?

    I too experienced the problem of zero visitors. But then I figured out the problem was my CDN and performance optimizers I used. I disabled all of my in-essential plugins, plugged my CDN out of my network and then checked the result.
    I found the CDN at fault. It was supposed to deliver the Google Analytic code but did not show it to all users for some cause. But then I fixed it all and now its all running fine.

    Anyway, can I have your blog domain so that I can visit it once and check for any possible error that I can investigate.

    I think getting indexed in case of a competitive niche is not a big deal ..
    Check out the competitors rank and their authority in that niche ..
    This might be the REAL factor when it comes to even the UNIQUE articles not getting rank ..

    Try optimizing for keyword with lesser competition until the site gains authority .

    You're in a very competitive niche. You'll probably not get many visitors without doing some SEO and link building.

    you could be targeting not highly searched keywords and of course not being on the front page is quite the difference between night and day.

    Is that a competitive niche? even though you have 50 articles in your blog, you have to rank the sites to get traffic, Or you can try some social media marketing. .

    I do have couple of website and am doing the same.. posting as many unique written articles to blog by drip feeding method. Each articles contain user searchable titles, social shares, related images, etc.. But it seems fine. getting enough traffic and social shares.

    Its look pretty strange that your blog have no visitors even with 50+ SEO optimized articles.
