12 months in - still no traffic - is something wrong?
My Site is now 12 months old 100% site trust and has 70 posts and pages on it.
I know that is not a lot for 12 months but its over 3 times my other site (Mothballed) and that gets plenty of traffic, and even sales, although minimal as It really need tons of work as I said it's mothballed.
But my main site is performing appallingly. I get between 5-10 clicks a day, and that's on a good day it can be 1-2 click. Obviously I will never make money with that sort of performance.
Obviously I have followed all Keyword training and targeted very very low hanging fruit. often below 10 QSR ( should be guaranteed PG1 right?) But my ranking are appalling. very few of my posts rank top 10, and even those that do are fluctuating in and out daily.
There just seems no rhyme or reason to any of it. Every few days google seems to like me my ranks go up and traffic begins, then it changes it's mind ranks go and the traffics gone.
I have been patiently waiting for this Google "inauguration" period to pass. In training we are told 3 months, more realistically we can expect 6-9 months nowadays and some people have seen it take 12 months. Well I am beyond that now and still seeing no consistency in my rankings.
It has me wondering if there is something wrong and it's not just Google messing around. Is there something on my site that upset Google? I am not an SEO expert of any kind so I am at a loss as to what could be wrong.
I really expected by now for my rankings to at least be stable.
Has anyone any ideas where I could be slipping up, things to check.
I'm just at loss as to how to crack this so I can't start seeing some decent traffic.
I had a single post pull 20 clicks a day with lots of affiliate click through's but it only lasted a day before Google pulled it's ranks, so I can see how I could have excellent traffic if only google would let me in.
Starting to lose heart :(
