    Hello, I am a graphic designer in uni and have some knowledge of design but I know very little about SEO. I recently created my first blog and I really want it to get some traffic so my project will be a success. ^^

    I have created the theme myself and I am steadily adding content. What I would really appreciate more than anything else would be some suggestions from the members of this forum on how I can improve the traffic and SEO on my wordpress blog. Im also keen to learn more and become more active around this section.

    P.S. I guess this also counts as an introduction huh.. So pleasure to meet you all. ^^

    URL: *oh it appears i cant post links lol... The link is in my profile under contact info. :3*

    I have had similar issues and it took me contacting my hosting about fixing it.

    In the header a working Search bar, + LOGO, (instead of the color) and a NAVIGATION BAR after that

    In the Sidebar, A subscription box or something like that with social links.

    and Popular Post and recent post widget.

    Good that you've changed the hosting. I was about to tell you that and found your blog post. So, congratulations and work more on the blog.

    Search bar at top not working
    change permalinks url structure. Don't use the default wp one.
    create a sidebar, open your accounts on twitter, facebook page etc
    align the stuff perfectly and long way to go my friend :)
