    Hey :)
    So here my directory site: http://venarticles.com/
    This is new for me and since this is not niche site, I have no idea from where to start. Site is 1.5 month old and it have 100+ articles. I plan to publish often, around 10-20 articles every day.

    Can you give me some hints how to start with the SEO ? At the moment I don't see ANY organic traffic. Even when I type my brand in google I don't appear.

    regards

    No one use article directories nowadays, because they doesn't work.

    You'll be finding it out the hard way then.

    Generic article directories which will be spammed by bots full of spun content serve no purpose at all.

    This is not typical article directory. No spun content. Only 100% unique articles. I block bots, it's only me who can publish articles.

    Quick tip to the OP.
    If you want to get traffic for your "article directory site" try searching for same terms in Google.
    Put comments with your article links. Also search on forums where has sections for new directories.

    This will give you some traffic but nowadays every one want to create backlinks from authority domain which your site is not having.

    I don't want people to publish articles with links that point to their sites. I just want to publish articles on every topic i can find. And wait for search engine traffic. Im the only one who will publish in this site. 4-5k articles will bring me some passive long tail keyword traffic after year ?

    It looks like you might be trying to cover too many topics at once; if you want to get organic rankings, try creating subdomains/folders for different niches and start targeting low competition keywords when you write each article.

    Well, depends what you want to achieve.

    If you are targeting marketers who want to submit to your directory, just go and find the top 100 most popular footprints that people use to scrape, and add them to your urls, titles, and page content.

    This will bring you some traffic and submissions to start with.

    As for link building, submit it in other paid article directories for now.

    Maybe think of an original way to get Social shares + traffic, sponsored ads maybe.

    **EDIT**

    Poorly worded threads = useless answers.

    "Well, depends what you want to achieve."

    I want to pull 1 person every day from the search engine for each article I have =))) And now for real: I just want to publish tons of articles and my goal is 3-4k from search engine daily with 1500-2000 articles. I know I target too many niches, but this is all i can do about it. I can't focus on same niche, because it's not me who write the articles ( this is other topic ). So i can have a lot of articles in many topics. That's why I created site directory ( but not really site directory ). Only I will publish there and content will be only unique. No spun or trash content.

    And my question is: with 1500-2000 articles, little SEO here and there ... can I achieve my goal: 3000 UV/daily from search engine ?

    If the articles titles are genuine long tail problems that people are searching for, then I don't see why not.

    Venkkata,

    I don't want to burst your bubbles so early.
    I reviewed the very first article I saw on the home page.
    Here's my honest-to-goodness feedback:
    - There are lots of subject-verb disagreements.
    - There are lots of missing commas.
    - There's lack of proper spacing in between sentences.
    - There are misspelled words.

    Sure you wrote in English, but the word choice in almost every sentence seems inappropriate to the message you're trying to put across. For example, you used the word "crucial" when you could have just used a simpler word "important".

    Instead of publishing 10 to 20 articles per day, why not work on the quality of your content?
    One high-quality content can knock-down 20 poorly written articles.

    This is true only if you are a blogger, trying to gain audience. Also it's not me who write them, my English is more than bad. I don't have a choice and I won't give 5$ for a single article for sure :) So i'm happy with what i can get. I count on random people to stumble upon on my site and click the ads. Nothing more.

    By the looks of your response, it seems to me that you don't like repeat visitors on your site.
    It looks like if a person stumbles upon your site for once, regardless if he clicks on an add or not, but doesn't go back to your site anymore, it's fine with you.
    You're paving the path towards a short-term success, brochacho.

    It's not like I love it, but this is all I can do. I need to count on thousands of articles, some SEO and luck.

    It's not really an article directory though is it? All the articles are by the same author...you. You haven't even used different pen names.

    Venk, I believe you can do better than that. If I were you, I'd save up so I can hire writers who didn't just learn English 13 days ago. It'll still go back to this conclusion: 1 high-quality article will beat 10 poorly-written articles.

    That's another point you've learned from Rita, Venk.
