    My domain authority is a pitiful 9.
    All of my backlink attempts have been ignored - people don't care about any of my stuff and content marketing isn't getting me anywhere.

    My SEO is sad, it's not getting any recognition from Google

    My pages have been getting deindexed by Google up until recently due to a http/https duplicate content problem (I kept the http URL despite getting an SSL certificate, it might not be the problem - but then it would mean that my stuff got deindexed for no reason)

    I don't use duplicate content (aside from an HTML registration form to my list)
    I don't scrap content
    I am doing most of the things that can be done right.

    I posted this question in other forums (Warrior forum etc), but they all pointed out some problems with my website, none of which were relevant to the fact that it literally doesn't rank for anything at all.

    Nor for the fact that I am just failing at building backlinks time and time again.

    I am hopeless, I got nothing to show for all of my work.
    Is my niche really impossible? The only competitors that I could find are some hot-shot medical websites, but why can't I even rank for long tail keywords?

    I keep failing and all of my efforts are worthless - the fact is that I am not getting any results.

    What can be the reason for that? My situation isn't normal.
    What else can be done? Why can't I beat some of my competition, that makes obviously inferior content, even on low-hanging keywords?

    Forgive me for ranting, I am pulling my hair out at the moment.
    If anyone has something, anything, that could help me I would be forever in their debt.

    It will probably depend on the keywords you are trying to rank for. If you are trying to rank for single words or two word keywords then you may struggle but if you type a couple of your titles into google you can find your posts.

    If you are not getting visitors or they are not sticking around then you might want to look at your site in general. It does look pretty bland.

    I'm no expert on SEO so someone else may need to provide some input though.

    Read up on on-site SEO. Silo linking structure and on-page optimization. Each page should target one specific set of kw's. Make sure the site is mobile friendly and FAST. Get the low hanging fruit first, only then proceed to links and offsite.

    Check your onpage, have a look at verifyseo.com

    Plus it might be an idea to remove your url from your post too, not everyone on here has morals / ethics.

    I ran some of my articles on this website, my on-page SEO seems to be pretty tight
    Anything else? Why am I failing so damn hard?

    I posted my link in the beginning of this page.
    Feel free to check it out

    Like I said, if you can give me an "aha" moment then I will literally cry out of joy.
    That's just how frustrated I am with my website.

    I'm seeing like zero backlinks. 1 forum thread, 1 Whois site and a nofollow. If you can't earn them buy them. You won't rank for shit like this.

    First of all calm down and relax, no need to pull your hair out. You haven't really built a lot of links to your site that's the problem. Keep building links until you have at least 2k results when you google your site with commas. Right now you have "About 203 results" and most of them are your own pages + a few free .cq and gq dorway pages/redirects that are hot-linking images from your site. Anxiety is a very competitive niche with great rewards, you just need to work more that's all :)

    Ohh got it.

    What type of SEO/links have you done for the site?

    Anxiety/depression is a profitable niche and competitive also. The content on your website is good. So no problem with that.

    That's another thing.

    I see literally zero competition on the subject of anxiety/depression.
    I am an ex-sufferer that wants to share some of his data, as well as programs/tricks that helped me get better.

    It makes me feel as though my niche is worthless, some of my competitors make ultra-thin content for super general keywords, yet they still kick my ass.
    I mean, have a look at this: anxietycoach dot com/ panicdisorder dot html
    Or maybe even this: calmclinic dot com/ anxiety / symptoms / extreme - clumsiness

    These are some of my biggest competitors in the anxiety niche (I don't really have any when it comes to depression).
    I make it a point to produce higher-quality content than them yet when I try to reach out for backlinks I get ignored. Time and time again.

    I fail at building backlinks - I tried everything in Backlinko, Neil Patel and a bunch of other marketers. It. Just. Doesn't. Work.

    And I don't know why

    Is there any profit to be made here? Is there really?

    My SEO is okay, but I haven't been able to build up backlinks.
    Like, at all.

    I tried everything in Backlinko and many other white hat resources.
    Nothing.

    I get ignored when I try to approach other people and other backlink opportunities just slip by me.
    Like all the time.

    And...
    Could you please read my answer to that other guy? I am not entirely sure that my niche is all that profitable in the first place (and that's another problem)

    self-help for anxiety and depression for people between the ages of 30 to 40 just doesn't sound all that sexy, you know? Not to mention that I don't have enough competition, which is a huge warning sign now that I think about it.

    Most of the websites that discuss anxiety/depression are non-profit.

    Why all these domains not indexing let exam the truth.....

    Have you done a site map?

    Have you done all the meta tags correct?

    Have you in any way touch the htacces file?

    Did you manually submit your url?

    Did you do onpage seo linking to a wiki?

    Did you add url to exzisting web pages that are already indexed?

    Have you cheeked for broken links?

    Did you submit url to any known directory?

    Easy route.....

    If you notice your link not indexed after a week , i use a indexing service, and there indexed within days .

    I'd recommend you to purchase some starter SEO package here on forum, which gonna help you with start. Also don't forget social signals, which are literally 0 on your website and try to build your social networks. Actually one of my projects gets bigger amount of traffic from social networks than from google itself.

    Anxiety is a multi-billion dollars industry. Think about xanax, prozac and other anxiety or depression pills and the profit they bring to pharmacies. If you have experience about this subject and think you could influence others for the better, you should write an ebook and publish it to amazon or clickbank, this way others can promote it and you won't have to worry about ranking.

    Yeah, but is self-help/do it yourself profitable at all? Anxiety and depression sufferers seem to only want to take their pills and catch up on forums.

    Most of them don't really *want* to help themselves, y'know?

    Well, if you are passionate about the niche and you don't do it only for money, don't give up that easily. You don't have to be top #1 in google search to get a legit traffic, just keep learning and improving your website and it will work sooner or later. As I said, I recommend you to start building your social networks, as it is a part of SEO nowadays.

    1) What keywords are you trying to rank for? A quick look at your site in semrush, i see no keywords you are ranking for.

    2) "I see literally zero competition on the subject of anxiety/depression." Not really...
