Hi guys. I've been on BHW for ages trying to learn, but I think I must be a bit thick, I'm 56years old, that may have something to do with it I guess. Anyway. Last March I wanted to get into domaining and made a right mess of that, reckon I wasted £800 doing everything wrong, so eventually I moved into blogging. After trying to keep 6 blogs running on my own and getting nowhere fast I realised I'd have to concentrate on just one blog, at least until I learnt the basics. Unfortunately I still can't seem to get anything right. I do all on the on-page SEO, write what I believe is quality content, write long tail keywords with low competition. The only stuff I can rank for are useless keywords it seems. I've had adsense on my site for nearly a year and have made £3.64 ;-) in total. I've recently added Amazon affiliate and not getting many clicks and zero sales. my site has some backlinks I made but I really struggle interacting with people, just the thought of "reaching out" makes me want to puke lol The site has some minimal metrics DA 18 PA 20. I have a small social presence FB\Twitter\Pintrest\G+ but I don't get many shares or likes (only from my family if I beg) Possibly the biggest mistake I have made is not being in a small enough niche, I can't even tell you what my niche is it's that broad, art\education\entertainment\fun, I purposely made it broad so I could write about virtually anything I wanted to, seemed like a good idea at the time. I just think I should be doing a lot better than I am, but I can't for the life of me work it out and I was hoping for some pointers from you experienced guys, if you would be so kind. I am aware that I shouldn't post my blog address on here as it looks like promotion so if anyone wants to have a look at my site please PM me. I am willing to throw small-ish amounts of money on advertising to get the site going but I am wary after the money I lost being too brave as a domainer and learnt my lesson, any advice if facebook adverts would work or other advice to get genuine targeted traffic in? I have tried several Fiverr gigs and all have been terrible for backlinks and seo and advice, you get what you pay for I guess. I contracted 10 articles to one person and first 3 they sent me my 1o year old grandson could of done better. Where can I get quality for a reasonable price anyone? You can see why I don't post often, I'm a windbag. Regards Steve.
