    Hi,

    I need your advice on how to get traffic to my website.
    I recently launched a website, the topic is a certain celebrity niche and users can access diet and workout plans of those celebrities as well as weight loss recipes. Everything is content locked, except of the celeb blog on the main site (so that users have at least something to read without having to fill out an offer directly).

    How I currently get traffic:
    -I have a YouTube channel with around 1,000 views per day- I put the link in the video description and as an annotation in the video
    - I use Pinterest, pinning celeb pictures and recipes with my link- Unfortunately I couldn't find group boards though
    - I use Twitter
    - I tried putting my URL in the signature of various forums, but all of them deleted my link saying I cannot post my own links in my signature

    That's it. Currently I get around 10-20 website views daily and around 10 clicks on a content locked file. I get one conversion every 10-15 clicks. Overall not so much.

    My questions are:
    - How can I get more traffic to my website?
    - Is one conversion every 10-15 clicks way too little? If yes, how can I improve it?


    Thanks a lot.

    Add more content to the blog and somehow link to the main page. Try to get long tail organic traffic through posts.

    get more pages for the part of your blog which is free to use. You can also get traffic from celeb related forums and news sites.

    Thanks I'll check it out!
    I don't know why but I just cannot seem to get a lot of traffic.

    I just started to post on related blogs- What's the best method to do so? Just write a comment on any post without mentioning your own website, just put own website in the 'website' field so people see your website when they click on your name?

    SEO must be your next step. Also Youtube has much more potential for you. Try to think how you can grow your fanbase and promote there for much more.
