Hi all, with all these G updates, I completely lost what strategy I should go for, it's ~ three months old new site I start write quality contents for it a month ago,
I write an article almost every day, it was indexed in ~3 days, but last articles didn't index yes, since 5 days ago,
I was only using reddit to get these article indexed, but I stopped 10 days ago to reduce it links profile since it still new website and I don't want it to get penalized.
Should I keep focusing on contents first and waiting for G generosity and start sending me visitors form e.g. long tail KW's, or go to next move and start building links?

Have you connected any social media accounts to the site as well? That could (although unlikely), help to index the new pages. If it's approriate though, having a strong social media presence can help the site to no end.
I'd definitely keep on adding fresh content to the site, but maybe schedule it so fresh content is being added every other day.

Personally, I would wait another month or two and then start to look into the link building. Depending on what your budget is, I would either go for PBNs, or for niche edit links at the start. For new sites, I always take the slow and steady approach if I want to keep them in the long term.

I have Facebook page I can use, but all my tweeter account banned or required phone activation, TW were helping me in the past for indexing,
The links I'm planning to build are high quality ones, but I don't know when should I start build them, is it different if the site is new or not

Yeah I would say keep adding new content, long tails. Rack up those low volume traffic and it should start to add up. Your articles should start to get indexed gradually since you aren't doing anything blackhat related. Hold back on the links for now

Keep adding content to the page and once you've got an indexed page that ranks decently, build natural looking backlinks and internally link from that page to a page that hasn't been indexed. This should help boost the rankings together.

You want to say that after some point, the articles stopped getting indexed ? It can be a penalty .
TBH, G bots (at least from GWMT) stopped visiting my site since four days (last URL indexed)
In GWMT I got 2 new pages showed as excluded from indexing (crawled and excluded) since 6 days a go, I resend it manually now.
+ G bot didn't revisit my site sitemap.xml file, only indexed 10 of ~30 pages on it, I don't know why, I used very simple WP sitemap plugin to generate it and the sitemap is valid, I got ~10 none indexed pages now.

Focus on adding content. Then do the backlinking. Of course you can do both at the same time but if link building takes more time than you can handle or it feels like a hassle, just focus on getting good content.

You need to keep adding content. In most journey discussions here on BHW it takes about 180 days from when content is published to get material traffic

Currently in SEO, content is a King. So just publish more article every day, google will bring the traffic to you with organic traffic.

Alright, today I notice almost month old article got two visitors from G, which is the second article I published
BTW I'm person of trial, I made multiple sites before and almost each one had different approach,
On my first site ever I didn't know anything about SEO, and I didn't even tried to promote it only on couple web forums I already member of it.
Anyway it tokes from me ~6 moths before trying to build link for it, I can't remember how many articles I wrote, but less than 100, and I was getting around 70 visitors/day naturally from G, but after a week from creating BL's for it. The visitors count jumped to 600/day and later 800UV/day,
After that I start reading about SEO specially on-Page SEO, after two years G put it in major KW that brings to me about 7K visitors a day, but that site penalized spammy host I moved into(because my Cc expired and only had BTC that time) victors declined in two weeks from 7k to 700 and at the end the site were completely wiped out the web.
On other site I did the opposite I promote it from first day even without many contents, I was creating the BL immediately after article published I ranked only one page off ~60 only got ~50 visitors/day, since then I stopped creating websites until I back this year, I hope the experience will be better .

Indexing problems are pretty common nowadays, so it's not surprising that your last article isn't indexed yet, it will solve in a couple of days. As for your second question, I would say that for now, you should stick with working on content and start sending visitors forms as it's better to do that properly first and then to move on with backlinks, once the indexing situation is stabilized.

Alright guys, G deindex (drilldown) the website since 11 days now all new pages are not indexed at all ,
This looks like automatic penalty against what's G called thin affiliate site, I know the niche I compete at are spammed to hell (like a diet niche) looks like G in last couple years lucked down this niche to prevent new sites from getting indexing easy, What's make thing worst most of these article wrote by other writers, now I just discovered how bad their SEO experience are.
What's should I don't now delete all non-indexed these pages, start writing them over, or change the title and remove the KW's from the articles? and resubmit it .
