    So I've created a blog 2 weeks ago, optimized it and set up correctly for SEO, all with the intent of monetizing, CPA in mind. Then I started writing articles targeting some keywords, all of them with less thank 6k views per month. My articles are all above 1000 words and the longest ones around 2000 something words, following all the current seo rules that apply to written content, uploading at least 1 per day and only missed 2 days cuz of an illness.

    The blog however is not that specific, I mean, it's about a general topic; lets say it's about vehicles. The articles are all related and talk about vehicles, on day 1 the post was about cars, on day 2 the post was about bikes, day 3 hovercrafts and so it goes. I don't know if this is the correct way to approach this blogging thing or if it's too vague going through the many sides of a topic.

    Going back to this case, I barely get views at all, some of my articles have 0 views to this day and others around 10 or 20 views, it's annoying since I spent like 2 hours writing each post. Im going to try social media promoting these days but what else can I do?

    It takes more than two weeks to see ranking results from a new blog. Your on page SEO, if it was properly done, will take 2-3 months to show results, and even only if the competition is not too high. You should try to publish guest posts, or relevant comments on highly visited sites to get more immediate traffic.

    @Darth Orko is correct... it's going to take a LOT longer than two weeks to see results. If you're expecting to make any significant amount of money within the next few months, you're going to be disappointed.

    Also, it sounds like you haven't really planned out your content. That's a mistake. Come up with a solid content marketing plan. Then it's just going to take consistent effort and patience on your end. But expect not to make much money the first year, and anything you do earn within that time will be gravy. Just don't give up.

    Well I've seen guys get good traffic in weeks but then I saw they were advertising so no wonder they did

    And yeah I haven't got a thoroughly written plan, that's something I need to get my head around. There's just not infinite amounts of content to write over something, it would quickly turn into a re-wording of older posts and im not talking about my case but generally, no idea how to do this. Will take time to think this and if I cant progress I guess I'll ask here

    Im taking notes to every post here though, they all have been helpful to me
