    I don't know where i can write this thread but i going to do it here.

    After 3 years working in my spanish blog about tech, I think I'm over. I write every day, even my blog is a source of gnews, and my posts are indexed with less than 1 minute but no one is reading my posts. I don't know what i have to do, this situation is overwhelming, i don't want give up but i don't know how to improve..

    Sorry about my english

    If no one is reading your posts (assuming they're good posts) then you need a bigger social presence. The way of the internet sharing took a big shift into social media.

    You are indexed, but that doesn't matter if you are on 100th page.
    Work on your social presence - Facebook, twitter, Google+. That will get you some visitors for sure. Work on your on/off page SEO.

    Great to try.

    1. Poor quality of Content
    2. You never syndicate your content.
    3. You never spend with your targeted audience

    If you have quality of site metrics you can accept guest post. Join MBG (MyBlogGuest). You can get quality of content. Next, each content you need to syndicate to your targeted audience. (Scoopit, triberr, pageli, contently). Each post convert PDF and spread Docs distribution and engage with visitors. Try out Cheers :)

    Flip it... sell it to a competitor to recoup some of your losses... Just be sure to get two or more interested parties bidding on it... They will low ball if it is just you. But the fear of losing out to another competitor will start a bid war.

    From the sounds of it you have a successful content delivery platform. What you are lacking is the engaging content that gets people in the door and coming back.

    If you are looking for a way to not give up... then go social. Turn it into an email newsletter. Gear the site for email acquisition. Create a facebook page and a twitter page... buy likes until it can grow organically... Feed engaging bits via social that draw people into the site and ultimately email reg. Once you have a media kit of respectable numbers then you start cold calling places that would CPM ad buy to your audience.

    Then if that doesn't work you have something 3 times more valuable to flip.

    Are you doing keyword research dude? My advice is to check out the Google Keyword Research tool, it still works. Target yourself some longtail keywords, keep adding good content, the money will start rolling in. Trust me.

    Do you know even if you have the best content in the world no one is going to see or read it if posted on little to no traffic blog.

    This is very similar to blogging or article marketing. If you have a bunch of good articles and publish them on low traffic blogs and article directories no one is ever going to see them or at most the views will suck because the sites you publish your content don't receive any substantial content.

    First step is to optimize your blog and rank them for a few good keywords.

    This will help you to maintain a steady number of traffic and eye balls.

    As months roll by, you will be getting popular as new visitors pour in.
    Many will bookmark, make reference with your site and/or syndicate your content on their high traffic blog if your content is worthwhile.

    Once you have a blog receiving a good number of traffic the next thing is to consistently publish valuable content,
    the content must be well researched and seem like the breaking news type of information.

    Focus on specific, attainable keywords (long tail, low competition). Optimize the on page factors, update the content to include these keywords. Distribute the content through as many channels as you can find: social media, bookmarking, forums, niche blogs, directories, etc. Include media in your posts, schedule more articles to be drip fed, do some competition research and back link analysis to find out what you're missing, then match and exceed.

    Go for social media, look for social media like exchange and retweet exchange, this will get you moving. Join different FB groups and post your article (related that is).

    Visit Q&A sites and answer several questions a day, that will be huge in the long run too.

    I don't know are you using Wordpress, but plugins like Flare and Digg Digg add pretty social sharing buttons. This can drive additional traffic and improve SE rankings.

    Keep at it. A lot of good suggestions in here. I'm frustrated myself since penguin 2.1, but not giving up.

    You could write an article telling people they are stupid and they will read it....only if it is at the top of the serps. You obviously have a lot of unique content. Spin your unique content n post it to other blogs and point those blogs at your blog. Make sure you do a tier system. Main Blog <-5 other spun blog sites<-25 other spun blogs sites<-....well you see where this is going. You already did the hard part with writing some unique articles...
