Hello, I have made dozes of blogs on blogger and none seem to be getting me anywhere. Nearly all have adsense, and I get a few cents per day and only a handful of hits. On Blogger, I am not sure if I pinpointed the problem or not. I want my SEO to be perfect before I blast it on social media some more. So, I did an experiment with a brand new blog. I made a handful of posts, using various tactics. Step 1: Keyword research using Google's Keyword Tool I chose 3 keywords that had about 2,000 searches per month with "low" competition. Step 2: Wrote Quality Content I made a blog post for my new site using the keywords. I tried to add meta data, but Blogger just deleted it. Not sure how to get around that. Length wise, my post is 650 words and uses only one Amazon affiliate link and a picture. Not sure if I can post a link, but the quality is there. Step 3: Some Social Sharing I pinned the link to Pinterest and shared it in my Google+. Total page views: 7 (published 2 days ago) I feel like I am missing a few steps somewhere. Usually when I make a new post, I get between 5 - 20 hits per day, and hit or so after that. I know that a few cents per day adds up over time, but that's a few cents over several blogs. I'm willing to put in the man hours to fix the others, but I thought I would start one with a "clean slate" and learn the perfect formula. Basically, I want to perfect my SEO, then form a social media strategy in order to get traffic. Any advice on what to do next? How do I up my traffic? I have been blogging for years. I would love to take this up to $X per day or $XX per day with just AdSense. I can build more Amazon Affiliate stuff later on.
