    so, I started to make some articles on this site, some have 1 month others some 1 week but I am not getting google visits on them.

    All my articles are unique and well written (actually I just translated some articles from portuguese to english)
    but I can't rank them on google ....

    how long do i have to wait on average to get visits? can anyone tell me?

    sorry my english, not my main language

    my stats

    First of all, make sure your account is not ghost banned ( for any reason.. They do this nasty thing often ). Try to visit your article's url from another pc/mobile.
    Second, if everything is fine, are your articles indexed? ( if those are well written and unique, and good enough for the audience - very importan -, it should be ).

    Cheers!

    Medium is not a place for "low quality" contents, also you need a very long time to build relationships to get a massive readings.

    I suggest u either sharpen your English skills and learn how to write good contents, or learn how to do smart marketings, without self write contents. Start your own blog or hosted on wordpress.com etc would be a good choice.

    I use spun content on medium all the time and it gets indexed fairly quickly, I did initially post handwritten articles and then moved to spun content so it might just be the first few posts that get manually picked up.

    if you PM me your URLs I can have a quick look and see if anything is amiss and slap it in my indexers if you like?

    Edit: just noticed you said they were indexed - how are you using medium? as a parasite?

    It took time for some of my articles to index, maybe try waiting a bit.

    It is quite hard to rank your article without publication.

    my parasites have been around for quite a few years, I focus on "get X for free" type articles, and basically relied on having an article written for a new game/in-game currency/microtransaction/etc the same day the game released and at one point they just ranked naturally, nowadays they need a bit of spam to get them up there, but since its a parasite you can go hardcore and not be fussed about de-indexation. I've moved away from that sorta stuff and now use medium for clients, which works well.

    If you are translating articles via google translate, you might get some SEO brownie points by checking the articles with Grammarly, just to help clean it up slightly.

    Steps to create a Publication on Medium.com
    1. Click on your profile picture in the top-right corner of the page and choose Publications from the menu.
    2. Click New publication.
    3. Enter your publication's name, description, and upload your publication avatar. These steps are required to create a publication.
    4. Additionally, you can:
      Add a logo that appears at the top of all posts in the publication.
      Add contact information.
      Any email address or Twitter/Facebook link is public.
      Add tags.
      Add editors and writers to your publication.
    5. Click Next in the lower right corner to go to the publication layout screen. Under the Homepage screen, you customize your publication's homepage.

    I am using it daily, and know how improved is. Yet the content you are posting its not fine. Spend $5 for EN proofreader in Fiverr to check your articles. You will see.

    You are basically regard medium as parasite right? That why u posted there.

    Medium readers are all very high level educations and will never have a good interest to read your translated articles, there are tons of much better ones than yours on the platform. (the people there love reading tech, Internet, etc topics)

    If you are aiming the parasite power of the platform, then you have another good reason to not use medium. As you have to publish "a ton" a articles to gain some noticeable traffics, then one day, boom, your account gets closed, since you are spamming there. You will lose everything.

    All in all, I can't understand why you choose Medium, it is not a good target for what you are going to do. Wordpress.com in this case would be better. If you just build some pages and to gain some link juices, then its fine.
