Hi all, I have a wordpress blog about a good niche that I expect to become much bigger over the coming years. My homepage URL (forgive me for not kwowing the correct term) contains a very relevant keyword to my niche's main keyword. The site is now almost 1 year old. I only started applying serious seo to it since about 6 months. The site is now PR1, with Alexa rank getting better each week. So far I've focused most on: - content (quality articles written by myself, and using a third party for the past few articles) - look & feel (the site looks pretty okay I guess, running the twentyfourteen wordpress theme... it could use a custom header though) - article placement (I tested various placings, but I can't be sure; I'm not getting enough traffic yet for doing proper a/b testing)(site is also showing relevant ads to the niche. So good, right?) - creating and maintaining the social media ring around it (the 3 big ones, and pinterest; I added pretty share buttons to my blog, and they're getting me some subscribers) - commenting and backlinking (I don't like doing this, but I noticed placing comments on big blogs drives instant traffic. I also got good no-follow links from a busy relevant wiki, and I have placed some high pr(4-6) do-follow links in wikis... now I'm just waiting for the PR-update The problem: For the past 6 months I got around 30-60 unique visitors per day. Last January number the numbers gradually went up to a peak of 120 uniques. That day I was #1 in the SERP for the main keyword of my url, but now it's back on page 2 of the serp What could be going wrong? I've added more content, did more linking, my bouncerate is steadily going down (normal: 60-50%, today 45%), I cleaned up my tags (investigated which ones were driving traffic and which ones were just junk I shouldn't have created), cleaned up some dead links with a few 301's... the site is responsive and looks good on mobile (don't know about tablet, but they're not bouncing much so I think it's good).
