    My pharma site has a blog area... with the general "share" this or that to social media. All articles are in some form or another related to generic medications for ED. Later on, we will be adding more mid-stream generic medications outside the ED category. Supplements, Vitamins.

    I really doubt any of these ED med posts will be shared on to social media. I am sure they are interesting reads, because we are pretty selective of what makes it to the blog. But still I dont see

    "check out this great article about tadalafil!" or "I just purchased from ____ my Sildenafil 100mg! Today!" share happening from this blog.

    so my question is, do I really keep this active? I assume the search engines love this stuff.. but my organic external links are very soft. My comments sections are so blocked to prevent spam, that they dont get comments.

    Do I sit there and drop in 500 fake comments per post? I am looking at my competitors.. and I see 600 shares of this and that.. come on really? Nobody is that proud of purchasing ed pills.

    To counter this, and to gain some traction on my blog... I drop in a dick joke or video. Maybe this will work? My links with the blog are mostly external to newspaper articles, youtube. Any ideas how I can get some pointing back my way?

    Thanks for any advice.

    That's quite a sensitive topic, and even if you have readers on your website, nobody will share a post showing how goof those ED pills are.

    Best thing you can do (as I see it) is to create another website, with another name and develop it as a man magazine.

    Don't include any ED articles, but also love/sex articles, or lifestyle ones. Do something similar to the Furrow of John Deere.

    That if you look into going the content marketing way.
