    Did you do any keyword research with the articles... 0 visitors is low

    My sites with 30 articles still at least get 100 uniques a day.

    Are you doing any backlinking ?

    Are you on twitter,facebook,pinterest etc following and interacting with niche related people ?

    Depends on the niche I suppose. Most of my Authority sites take a while to come to life. Structure of categories, on site architecture and on site seo are very important.

    I would only consider 400 word articles as 2 minute posts. The bedrock of my Authority sites are a few 2000-5000 word articles. If you have 3-4 superb pieces of copy you can heavily promote them to drive a bit of traffic.

    For an Authority site you need to define your niche and break it down into distinct categories. From these categories you can have multiple sub-categories. On page optimisation is important. Content wise I consider 400 word articles as daily blog posts. People say you can get away with 600-800 word articles...Im sure you can but I prefer building something that I would consider an actual Authority and that means main category pages that lead with 2000-5000 words of key information.

    Spend more time on learning about on-page seo and dont be buying links on fiverr.. In time build your keywords out with web 2.0s you can point all the fiverr links you want at them.

    I've never just posted articles on my site and not done any backlinking. Are your articles targeting any keywords? Do you have a list of keywords you're trying to rank for?

    Regardless of what some on other forums (and sadly occasionally this forum) without backlinks you will not gain any meaningful rank. Without any ranks you will struggle to get much traffic at all.

    25 profiles on high PR sites is not like having high PR links, in fact generally I have found profile links to be about the lowest form of backlink. Profiles without indexing will usually go unnoticed and profiles are generally on inner pages that have no links to them so won't count for anything.

    Make sure you have your ping list setup in WP because usually just pinging your new content will result in at least a couple of visitors.

    Also make sure your stats is setup correctly as this all could just be a case of incorrect setup of your stats tracking.

    Oh really? Well, I guess everyone on this forums have a couple of authority sites then. You write 3 articles (each 400 words!) per week.
    You got your site connected with FB and Twitter....well, I guess you have authority site, it's just people haven't heard about it yet. Their fault, they don't know what they're missing

    Is your website ranking for any keyword in Google?
    It is shocking if your website gets zero visits as it is likely that you're visiting your site so it should be at least 1 UVs :)

    Are you sure you don't restrict traffic in some way? Geo or something?

    I was shocked one morning when I checked one of sites which receives about 700 UV. It was on 0 UV. I just forgot to comment some lines in htaccess. :)

    there is no such thing as an authority site with 0 visitors, 0 visitors = 0 authority, you need traffic, is your site even indexed?
