    Hey guys.
    I have a new exact match domain (age: 2 months).

    Niche: "Movie Streaming".

    Website: Fully automated, a page for every movie with a lot of scraped content form other websites like IMDB (description, pictures, trailers, etc..).
    No pirate links/streaming on the website.

    Moneytization: Ad-center CPA offers.


    I've invested in on-site seo and the content is 30% unique.
    But still no google rankings - only 10-30 visitors from google daily.

    I think the problem is the "session time" and "bounce rate" which is bad.
    People come to my page, then, they click on a link to the offer, then, leave my website.

    Avg. Session Duration
    00:00:34
    Pages / Session
    2.55

    Do you think this stats are related to my poor rankings?
    Do you have some tips to improve this to get better ranking?
    what should I do?

    Thanks! :)

    make better website.

    Not sure what you mean by investing in content but apparently it's shit.

    If your only goal is to hold users a bit longer – use gifs. There are gifs for almost any movie out there andd a bunch of those to the movie page and people will stay longer just to watch some gifs.

    You're getting visitors, but you're focused on rankings.

    What's the point in more rankings and more visitors if, as you've spotted, they bounce off straight away?

    1. Check they are human visitors.

    2. Be honest about what is on the pages they land on. Is it crap or engaging?

    Have you checked in your logs that the 10-30 visitors are even people. It looks like they are just bots scraping your site.

    It's kind of crap because right after they come to my pages they are get a "Fake player" with the movie and being redirected to an offer.
    This is my way to convert.. i don't offer pirate links.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    I doubt you could make much with such a site, try targeting low comp keywords and add more unique content.

    Content is king for rankings.

    You are using duplicate content and automation scripts, you cant expect to rank high without a decent % of unique content.

    If google even smels an autoblog you will be penalized in a heartbeat ( assuming you already arent ).

    Since you don't have streaming movies, that's going to be an issue.

    If I were you, I would create multiple pages for each entry.

    This way you can drag the visitors' eyeballs from page to page.

    You might also want to put excerpts from Youtube or small legal clips posted publicly on Youtube for the movies that you are featuring.

    Of course, there's no magic bullet solution.

    Every website is different.

    Every website has a particular set of circumstances. but by playing around with these elements and also adding pictures and stock photos, you might be able to get people to stick around

    longer to your website.

    With that said, you have to understand that SEO is just part of page elements.

    It seems that your obvious focus is primarily on page elements.

    You might also want to consider the quality of your backlink footprint.
