    Hi everyone, so I have a blog with some inner pages.

    I was getting some hits to the inner pages via long-tail keywords.

    The more pages I was adding, the more traffic was going up. But, traffic started to plateau and now is even going down even though I am continuing to add content!

    Shouldn't the more pages I add mean more long tail hits and more traffic to the inner pages?

    It isn't a rule of nature that more content generates more traffic.

    If we are talking organic traffic, it is related to your rankings. There may be a hundred reasons why one page receives more visitors than another. The most obvious would be that the titles and the content of those pages just contain a better set of keywords (matching the way people search + have a lower cmopetition).

    Well I just found that impressions are up, but clicks are down. So I guess there is nothing I can really do about that?

    It's weird because clicks are WAY down(yet impressions are up slightly)...

    You can put some thoughts into your choice and use of keywords + link building.

    If you are talking about the stats in Google Webmaster Tools, it isn't so unlikely. A listing that ranks #10 compared to one that ranks #1 gets the same amount of impressions, but the one ranking #1 will most likely get more clicks.

    So if some of your original keywords are dropping while you increase the amount of keywords you rank for (when you publish more posts/articles), your impressions will go up while your clicks will drop :)
     
  7. Maybe your quality in your content went down. Pick better keywords and build some links.
    Good luck.
