So I own a sports website...it's actually a website related to the NBA. There are 20 writers writing for it as of now and the revenue is solid. The writers write for free and help with other stuff, such as logos, recruiting more writers and so on. The website looks very good, its mobile version is awesome and it also has an Android application with over 100 installs. It also has a Twitter account with 550+ Followers and a Facebook page with 25k+ likes. However...I want to take it to the "next level". Right now, I get ~8000 views daily. Sometimes it's 5000, sometimes it's 18000, but the average is ~8000 or so. I get ~400+ visits from Search engines, ~500-600 visits from many other sources, but the major source of my views is Facebook. I have a feeling that if I stopped posting articles on Facebook, I would be getting 1000 views or so, which is quite bad, of course. Also, there are over 1600 unique articles written on the website. Now I am wondering - what I can do to make it even bigger? Paying authors won't work, I tried it. People just get even more lazy and want to get paid for nothing. Facebook promotion might work, but I will avoid it since I use AdSense on my website and it's basically buying traffic...and still, it would be from Facebook. I want to create a website people will visit to check the news, and I only get 200-300 daily visits from direct links. If you have any advice for me, please post it. Thanks!
