    I've got an eCommerce site that someone here on BHW has made for me. My site is roughly a month old or a little older by a few days and I still haven't got a single sale. I'd like to know if there is any potential if I were to throw some White Hat SEO at my site with me being able to bring in some sort of sales. I've also thought about running ads on PornHub.com to see if that would help any. Please share any and all input you may have with ideas as to how I could get some sales. My site currently promotes itself on FB and IG, as well as Pinterest. I have a really small amount of followers on all of those social sites.

    Since your site is new, you have to wait a bit longer for making sales through organic traffic. Getting links from high authority and niche relevant guest blogs will definitely help you to get good targeted traffic for sure. You can try them.

    Also try media buying only after you master the technique.

    Go black hat. Just don't over do it. Normally ecommerce is pretty competitive and to be honest with white hat (i consider white hat is mainly on-site SEO), it's almost impossible. You can't use content in the same way as blogs do (except on your shop's ... blog). Just build a couple of tier 1 properties and send some links to those, and after a few days/weeks/months point links from your tier 1 to your money site. That's what I used to do and it worked well.

    I have had some success making the on page spot on and also beefing up the descriptions a bit for each product so that each page has some unique content.

    You could also promote yourself as an authority in your niche - get involved in forums and so on - don't directly push your products, just link from your signature.

    Also, 1 month is very short time so don't expect miracles over night. If you get impatient you will end up blowing it.
