    I own 2 sites I would love to post here but the forum will not allow me and both are not getting much search traffic - basically next to none.
    I would love to get the forums advice on items I have overlooked to optimizing the site for search - are there server issues, coding issues, or other things I just am not doing right. Send me a private message to get the URLS. Or explain me how to post them here.

    I focus on White Hat techniques and hope to avoid Black Hat techniques to gain better rankings.
    At this point I am lost and frustrated trying to understand were I am going wrong.

    I use gtmetrics, woorank, google webmaster tools to check for issues
    and google keyword tools, google analytics to study keywords and keyword phrases for my sites.
    I gain my knowledge from reading this forum and google crawling forum daily but still feel I am doing something wrong.

    Thank you in advance for your advice.

    As far as I know I have done my onsite seo well
    title, descriptions, keyword/key phrase placement, not over stuffing, rel=author.

    If you've used one anchor building all the links, google doesn't like it. you have to diversify text on your links.

    Is this all unique content? (nothing spun)

    To answer the questions
    - I don't pay for SEO services do it all myself.
    - As well I do not spin articles, it is unique.
    - I don't believe I am using one anchor text for link building - but could be wrong if you see something I am not seeing. . I try to get links naturally people linking to content they like.
