    Do right now, my blog gets 2-5 views from Search Engine per day.

    Do I continue writing new articles

    or should I stuff the articles with more keywords or does the article slowly climb up in rankings by itself from the search traffic?

    I’m trying to maximize my search traffic

    How many articles on the site ATM?
    Updating blog often is as important as to have each article optimized. Do not stuff keywords or make articles just because of specific keywords. Better to target a variety of keywords where you have a couple of keywords per article.

    Sharing links on social media will be good for both SEO (as signals) as well as traffic as users will click the link and directly land to your website.

    Personally, I don't go crazy over SEO and in most cases, it comes naturally with time.

    ALWAYS! Never Stop regardless whether your site is getting 2-5 organic visitors every day nor it´s getting 20,000-50,000 daily visitors, never stop increasing your website value.


    NEVER! I don´t know what is your process when conducting keyword research nor what is your website structure right now but i would focus on very small/long tailed keywords and build a s**t tons of articles around them. I rather do this than keyword stuffing.

    Besides SEO what other traffic sources are you focusing on?

    Depending on your answer this was going to be my advice to you.
    Developing a social media presence and building up an audience there is almost like a MUST DO for any blogger these days. It´s free/cheap, high quality and targeted traffic that has insane value. USE IT!

    Couldn´t agree more!
    But don´t stop working SEO. Make it a habit. Just let it work by itself while you focus on other ways to drive traffic to your site. In 6 months your website will thank you!

    I have 17 articles. Let’s say I find like 20 long tail keywords that matches the article, I can place it around the article as long as it makes sense and I’ll have higher chance of ranking correct? So the more I find the better?
    Thank you! My traffic is quora and BHW!
    Usually 6 months is when traffic starts spiking right?

    You should do keyword research BEFORE you write the articles, not the other way around. After that you should try to rank for those keyword you chose.

    As long as it makes sense - is the most important part here. Don't make it as an obvious kw stuffing, the final goal is traffic, but the traffic should be happy with the content and bounces can affect your SEO.

    Focus on where to place it, rather how many times.
    E.g. Title, URL, description, alt-tag, etc.

    Are you using WP? If so - check SNAP plugin, it can help you distribute your content to dozens of social media sites with a single click.

    Can be 6 months, 6 days, or 6 weeks, I wouldn't put any time on it as SEO unpredictable :)

    Your tag keywords are most likely going to be indexed on each specific post if using Wordpress. Just focus on main keywords for big traffic and let the tags index and do the rest!

    Is the domain brand new? Is the domain authority low? Are the keywords you're trying to rank easy? Is the content long enough to rank on Google?

    I myself I struggled the first 3 months. But then after some backlinking Google, started slowly trusting my blog and currently its threating it as a mini authority website. Ranking my content for relatively easy keywords in less than 24h.

    I suggest you write more articles based on main keywords with LSI.
    It will help your site to save from keyword cannibalisation.

    Depending on your niche, I might suggest you publish LESS and promote more.

    How?

    Write LONGER blog posts-these can pull more traffic from SE's

    Focus more on building links to your content

    How?

    Link outreach / broken link building / finding people who linked to stuff like yours and get them excited about your stuff

    A big chunk of WHITE HAT SEO is all about OUTREACH

    YES, you should, As G has shown a glimpse of love towards your site's content.
    Instead of stuffing kws, try to build relevant links and wait to get ranked

    It’s others way to generate traffic then search results from google.... social media promotion is one of them And of course media buying. You also have to be realistic and game plan for growth of your site fully.

    Even my best articles take about 6 months to rank.

    I wrote an article in March of last year and it ranked in the top 3 beginning around October.

    Same with many of my other articles.

    Don't expect it to rank immediately. Even if it's an aged authority site (which your blog isn't yet), it takes a few months to creep up the SERPs.

    I published a dozen evergreen articles a month ago and they're now in the 2nd or 3rd page for their primary keywords. I expect them to hit the 1st page in 3-5 months.

    first you need to regulalry write an article and make your website active as possible, second try using repetetive keywords it works most of the times.
