    Hey BlackHatWorld,
    I've made a Luxury / Mentor "Magazine" Style website with Cool Tips and Tricks and such, I'm using Keyword planner with low competition keywords from 500 searchs to 5k. I've got really decent articles hand written by me with 1200+ Words but yet I only get around 8 Views per article.. I don't understand what i'm doing wrong.. And the whole facebook thing is not working for me either i cannot seem to get likes naturally. However instagram is doing really well i'm gaining around 500 followers a day currently at 6k Followers on IG. If anyone can give me some tips on how to start driving generic traffic into the site that would be helpful. I'm using a really professional looking template and the site looks amazing and user friendly.

    Try to share your content in target place like in the related sub reddit, buy up vote if needed on fiverr and start a quality link building

    You need to start link building like Byron said. Article quality is important, but SEO is equally if not more important to actually get eyes to your articles. It sounds like you did a good job with low competition keywords, you just need a little push to start ranking.

    seo is the slow game - keep at it. for now stick where you're good at - instagram. and work on your facebook - read and learn. you're doing well. no one gets it first time. so just keep pluggin away.

    I Share all my articles on facebook, I only got around 17 Likes, I tried joining groups related to "Luxury", "Inspirational" and so on but there are few groups and most of them are arabs. I cannot find Legit Groups with high amount of active followers that i can post in..

    Instagram is doing great, I will keep pushing with that!.

    I've honestly never used reddit before, I did try posting a few links on reddit back to my site but that doesn't seem to be doing much.

    That's my question, How do I "Push" The ranking, What am i NOT doing? I Have about 13 Articles in total, I Believe 4-5 of them are really great articles with interesting titles.

    So besides posting great content and trying to expand my social media reach as far as possible, What else can I push for? :)

    Very interesting, Can someone give me a little more about "Link building" And "Backlinks" I know generally it is getting another website to link back to your website but that's all i really know about Backlinking, I'm not too familiar on where else other than reddit or to pay for some service to do it for me.

    The whole forum is about link building, begin to read the "parasite link" by T0mmy and start to be familiar with reddit because I think your niche can have tons of traffic on the right sub domain, one days I have put a link and with the referral traffic I have earn 240k visitors: in 3-4 month but you know what I mean, and it make me a big boost in my SEO for this keyword

    I'm on the health niche but I browse few time by week site about luxe and design because I like a lot, send me your url in PM if you want I take a look, and for reddit no need to pay someone for up vote but if you do that you can have XXK target visitors + SEO for around $5, and these guys can come back few day after for read your new post

    I would question your niche if you can only find Arab groups for your keywords in FB. People make groups and pages on Fb for things they are enthusiastic about. If there aren't any then your niche might be just something that people are interested in but aren't ready to buy. You should also get someone else to read your articles. It might sound great to you as you have written it but does it give the person the answers to a solution, does it leave them wanting to get more info, does it make them want to get their wallets out. I know you will think yes - but that's because it's written in a way that appeals to you. I'm not sure what a luxury/inspiration/mentor niche can be but you should look at the top 10 results in Google and look at what you offer. Do you think your site would stack up well against the top ones. Are any of the top ones from big names. If the top 10 are all big names and brands then the chance of breaking into the top 10 will be hard. Good luck.
