Each time I post a new article on the blog and share it via social media I seem to get some traffic to my site, but after a while, the traffic dies down until I publish and sha

It depends on what type of content you're writing. Are you writing for low competition keywords? Are you optimizing your pages for search engines (SEO)? With SEO'd pages, they should be able to rank (assuming low competition), and that should provide a steady flow of traffic.

You can consistently add content to help

Great question and great answers

It sounds normal to me. Constant adding content. Share on social media. Reshare old posts. Get comments. Use a mail list.

By keeping a constant flow of content creation and sharing, by offering something to your visitors, a sign up or an ebook download perhaps, you can include a button on your facebook page.

At same time, you're building an email list, in which you can market to the list.

By asking questions, engaging community.

By offering a less discounted trending product or offering free shipping and handling.

By creating a video that you think would go viral.

And the list goes on.

How do you remove a keyword and a site from the site rank section within Jaaxy?

If it's in your history of rank tracking, then you can't remove it. You can just do more searches and it will eventually disappear.

What's your goal with this?

Thanks, Nathaniel, that's the answer that I was looking for.
I just had some links on there that I didn't want anymore.

Ah, glad I could help!

I did one post the other day using Gutenberg and actually found very it good and useful, is anyone else here using it, what are your experiences with it?

Gutenberg is a friendlier User Interface if you are new to WP. If you are already familiar, you may actually work faster with the old editor.

It has the concept of blocks, which is good as you can edit the blocks individually. It does overlap a bit with the functionality of page editors.

I use both as Gutenberg does have some compatibility issues with some themes.

I use it on one of my websites. It's actually growing on me. I still find many things annoying about it, like there's no easy way to scroll to the bottom of long post, or some keyboard shortcuts don't work, or I can't see the whole post as a text editor (just a block), but there are some benefits to it too.

I like that I can change the alt text of an image without opening it up, or that I can insert HTML without flipping to the text editor.

Hey Simon,

It appears to be WordPress' attempt at including a page builder. Like other members who have already commented, I too prefer the Classic Editor.

Having preferred working with HTML and CSS for many years, it took me a LONG time to FINALLY jump in and start using WordPress.

Hope this helps you.

Never heard of it. I write my articles in either Notepad++ or Open Office Writer. Then when done copy & paste them into the WordPress normal editor. Classic I guess it is called now.

What is the main benefit of Gutenburg? Seems like the classic editor has everything that is needed to format, style, decorate and publish an article page.

I like the Classic much better.

I was just getting a hold on the Classic Editor when Gutenberg came out so I stuck with Classic. Here is a great tutorial from MarionBlack.

I am not...I prefer the Classic editor. It's probably a comfort level/familiarity thing really. I'm used to it, it works well for me, etc.

#MeToo. I must be getting old. Old and wise is tried and true.
Change for the sake of change is folly.

Search Engine Optimization

If my keyword research results in Jaaxy are as follows

AVG 128, Traffic 22, QSR 0, KQI great, and SEO 98

is this a good result?

Yes, those would be great results Simon! I say go for it.

Hi - are you actually clicking the "get QSR" button, which is actually located in the KQI column.

Yes, I am.

It's a good result Simon but I wouldn't be to excited about the 0 QSR. Lately quite a few of jaaxy's results have been coming through with a zero. I'd check out the keyword on Google first to see if anything comes up. Jim

Ok, thanks, Jim.
