    Hello,

    I have created a SEO/Making Money Online blog about 3 months ago now. In that time span I have created 38 500+ word articles. However, I'm only getting about 30-40 unique visitors to that blog daily.

    I have tried all kinds of links, I have some blog comment links, some web 2.0's which are also blasted with thousands of scrapebox links, I have a twitter account which tweets each article, as well as an facebook that posts each article on our fanpage. We also are listed in the technorati blog directory.

    As you can see, we have some backlinks, but I'm not getting a whole lot of visitors. It would be cool if I could get my blog to a 1000 unique visitors per day, So I would kindly ask if you could give me some tips.

    I'm monetizing the blog with google adsense. I have registered the domain name for 2 years, and it is a short 8 letters .com domain.

    Are you trying to rank specifically for any keywords? Remember if you are trying to rank for SEO you have thousands of people that are probably more skilled than you at SEO going for the same terms.

    You're aware of course that meta tags aren't used by SE's? If you think good on-site seo is using meta tags then you definitely don't know anything about SEO.


    Why wouldn't you be trying to rank for keywords? It also doesn't make sense to say you're not ranking for keywords, but you're trying to get your articles ranking higher in Google.

    It's also contradictory on 2 levels. You say you've done good on-site SEO, but if you're not targeting any keywords, then how can you possibly have done a single bit of on-page SEO? That's like saying you've successfully planned a route to your destination, when you've not decided on your destination.
