    Hello Guys,

    i am new to this forum and would like to take some advises from the experienced users over here.
    i have run a new shop and did too much SEO using the services of some users in BHW, i bought backlinks, social marks, wiki and edu links
    also i've ran a campaign over google adwords but they disabled my ads and not accepting me again by reason: misuse policy.

    i didnt get any sales in the past 3 months and dunno what to do. can you help me?

    Well start advertising on ebay and amazon, lower your prices and i think that this would give you the desired product. Also make a page on facebook and share it everywhere and put your products on the page too :)

    You can't just buy a ton of seo, backlinks, social signals, etc. and think you are going to get sales. Dive deep into your niche and start doing a lot of split testing and analyzing your competition. Once you start finding patterns which works for you then scale it up and keep optimizing. Pretty much ever niche is different and requires a different twist on marketing so that is why split testing is key. Never set it and forget it.

    It is not easy to just get a sale when your shop is new. I have 1 month old shop and got 3 sales only.
    And it all depends on competitive market is for your products. If highly competitive, you need to work from small steps, such as blog/forum comments, social media.
    Content marketing such as running a blog may help, but all these need times.
    If you have fund, go advertise through another adword account or use Bing or facebook, or even PPV.
    If you do not, then work on manual traffic building through participating in community/relevant blog/forum.
    Best of luck!

    SEO is the end game not the immediate goal. It should be your long term strategy especially since it is a legitimate business and not a churn and burn website. Be wary when it comes to automated backlinks.

    Think differently, and try to get new traffic sources that works on the short term.

    Here is a post i did 2 years ago and should give you some ideas on how to get traffic on the short / mid term :
