    Notes: I’m starting to interact with other bloggers and I have received several followers from that. Today is Friday and my goal is to get to 20,000 word-count by the end of this weekend which should be 6/9/19 10 PM PST. I got 50+ hours to myself.

    Oh man - organic traffic is hard! But it’s the best one in my opinion. But at the beginning Reddit, Quora, and forums are great for links.

    Notes: I didn't write any new articles. I rewrote a lot of my older articles and was able to add around 1400 extra words. I made my articles more SEO friendly. Looking at my old writing style, it was cringey. I am going to continue now. Hopefully, I can get to 15,000-16,000 words today. I also wonder how long it'll take for my articles to get indexed.

    Notes: My goal to hit 20,000 words failed. My brain is fried. The good news is that I got 5 more Search Engine Traffic. I’m really impatient for results but I will continue until I get it. Also the good news is my Alexa ranking is now updated to top 7,200,000

    Wishing you good luck with the blog endeavor man. I'll probably start a journey thread soon, as I've seen a few here and discovered that it forces people to be motivated because they're under pressure to answer/keep the followers informed. Anyway, good luck. Based on past experience, I'll say that you need a lot more content than you currently have, to start getting decent number of visitors. I understand you going slow at the start but please get ready to post a lot more. I had close to 170 articles on my blog, published over a period of 4 months. Good quality articles, personally written. Looks like even you write your own content. Just step it up.

    Do the keyword research if you are targeting organic traffic and make sure that the topic gets some searches in Google. Otherwise, you might write article about something that does not get any volume in SE. Do not simply pump out articles blindly, hoping that somebody will find it.

    Also, do not get crappy backlinks from forums, blog comments, etc. Don't ruin the domain authority as blogging is long term.

    Thank you for your advice! I’m starting my new job full time soon. I was able to push in 5,000 words this weekend and will hope to continue to push 500-1000 words on days where I work.
    Yeah, I had bad experience with a provider so I had to disavow the links. I’m still learning about backlinks. Do you have any recommendations?

    In my opinion, there are three ways of link building that is worth it - anything else is either crap or used to diversify link portfolio - 1. outreach and guest posting (safest and most common in 'whitehat' world). 2. PBN - Private Blog Network built either by you or you buy links from a provider (gl finding 'safe' one). 3. creating the content that is linkable - which is difficult when you start out.

    You can PM me your website and I'll try to give you useful advice (or post it here, but I guess it's not allowed?). If you are asking about link building strategy, chances are your content strategy isn't great either.

    Do you buy fake traffic to boost ranking or which SEO technique are you using?

    Notes: I created a new way to capture emails. I got one so far. I started sharing a link on Twitter with hashtags and I got 3 visitors. I got a visitor from Yahoo and another from Bing. 3 from Google. Everything looks great so far. I brained stormed my next article that I’m going to write tonight hopefully adding another 2,000 words. I’m not sure how Alexa does rankings but I jumped another two million which is great! I saw that my job interview was an hour away from home, so now I’m searching for a different job to find my website.

    Sure I’ll give you a PM!
    I’m not buying any traffic to boost rankings. Somehow I managed to be on top 5 for Bing for a keyword but I doubt Bing gets that much traffic. I just put my effort into the content like how people recommended. Content is king I guess.

    It takes time and perseverance. If you are passionate about what you do, with motivation and work you will succeed

    Don't give up! I myself I've started a new blog back in December. I kept working hard for 5 months straight and currently I'm averaging 6/7k daily users!

    Notes: My 2,000 words article is almost completed. Even though Alexa tracks only engagements, I feel great that I’m ranking through organic traffic. Alexa might not be great for ranks but so far, everything I’ve done is legit which is nice for me to see results on Alexa.

    Woah! I needed to hear this! How much content did you have by the time you hit 6/7k daily? I’m inspired by many people like you!

    It's not really about the content, in my niche I got tough competitors, for easy keywords I get competitors with 20DA to 40DA. Until April my average was of 10/15 visitors then I started doing some heaving backlinking and then the traffic gradually increased.

    PS: Don't get me wrong content do matter a lot but when it comes to ranking also authority plays a huge role.

    Last question but what type of backlinks did you start with or recommend? I’m not knowledgeable in link building and also afraid to not be in favor of google if I mess up my site

    Started with DF blog commenting, DF links from different websites (Check the link building section you will also find some gems from @Rachmaninoff). Then also No follow links from Quora and Yahoo answers. When my blog began picking up in the SERPs then I started receiving automatic backlinks from other websites. Some might look spammy but I didn't disavow them since at the end of the day when your website gets higher in authority then you will obviously get backlinks from different sites.
