The cumulative layout shift on my site is poor, it is 0.39. How can I fix this? I am doing everything to have my site to rank, but have been unsuccessful. Maybe fixing this

You have fantastic responses; kindly let us know if you require additional assistance.

Hello Abie,

How have you been doing? I have always enjoyed reading your articles. Thanks for everything. Much success to you.

Hi - Google has recently said that Core Web Vitals only plays a tiny part in ranking.

I would be surprised if fixing your CLS suddenly encouraged your posts to start ranking.

There could be other problems, perhaps you could ask for feedback on your website.

Thank you Diane for your advice. Will it be alright if I send you my site url so that you can give me feedback? Let me know.

Hi - yes, of course, send me a Private Message.

CLS and LCP problems can be very difficult to solve. This is partly because, whatever change you make, you will know the result for sure only after 28 days.

In one site with all URLs that could not pass the test, I disabled featured images, and after that all URLs became green.

Hello JvRanjes,

Thank you so much for your help. I am going to try everything. Much success to you.

cls is where loading items on your page shift the lower parts after they have loaded ..
so an image holder at the top takes time to load while the text under it loads quickly - the image then displays full size and shifts the text down...

pagespeed insights should give you clues as to what is not displaying fully when loading to reduce this affect...

Hello Feigner,

Thank you so much for your help. I am going to check the pagespeed insights. Again thanks.

Keyword, Niche and Market Research

I have created 30 post on my website. Many have been indexed by Google, but no ranking. Should I start a new website in a different niche or continue with this one?

Hello my friend! I wouldn't jump to making a new site yet. I would say, try and find out why they are not ranking. Thiry posts are not that many, so I believe your site is probably not that old. Give it time and keep working on your site and building quality posts. That is important.

Thanks my friend.

You are very welcome!

You're just getting started :)
Work on why your articles aren't getting ranked. Is it the competition for the keywords you're picking? Do you need to be more thorough? Are your focus keywords solid? :) Keep it up!

Hello Eric,

Thank you so much for your advice. I am going to do just that. Thanks again.

You got this!

Hello Abie,

Thank you for that solid advice. I will continue with this website. I appreciate your help.

Continue on the one oyu have--you will need a lot of quality content, my friend! Keep progressing, Sten!

Jeff

Hello Jeffrey,

Thank you for your advice, I am going to continue with this site. Again, thank you for your assistance. Talk to you soon.

That sounds awesome, Sten!

Thank you!

Jeff

I would continue with the one and keep addressing more issues answering your visitors concerns and provide viable solutions to solve their issues.]

Why do you think you need to start a new website?

It is better to stay focused on the one focused niche website and see it to fruition IMO.

Hello Abie,

Thank you for that solid advice. I will continue with this website. I always appreciate your help.

Most welcome!

No they do not, however I come across ones that won't install on my WordPress, I reach out to site support going forward.

Thanks

You're very welcome!

There are some plugins that Wealthy Affiliate do not allow, but you wont be able to install them if that is the case. You can always check with support

Thank you so much, I appreciate your help

As long as they are WordPress plugins you can install what you wish. Just curious. Are you thinking of using AI. make sure you make it sound natural because search engines are very aware and can detect content that is not written by humans.

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question

No, it's your website. Install and activate any plugins you want.

Very much appreciate your in put. Much success to all of you.

You're welcome, Sten.

How long does it take for your site to be. ranked by either Google, Yahoo or Bing? I have 17 posts as of now on my site.

When a website will be indexed is hard to predict. Hopefully it will happen soon. Once your site is indexed then your posts can be crawled and indexed and raked as well.

Did you narrow your niche down to a specific audience and are they written to help those interested in your niche? The initial posts should be informational. (What is, how to, Why) You may like to use answersocrates.com to find some questions people are asking..

Thanks for that. I narrowed it down and I think they are informational. I will check answersocrates.com. Thanks again.

Hi - are you talking about indexing or ranking? They are two different things.

Indexing is when Google finds each individual post and adds it to its search engine.

Ranking is when Google decides which page of its search engine results to display your posts on.

Your website as a whole is not ranked. Each individual post will have its own ranking, but it can easily take up to 8 months to find its final position.

Thanks for your input. Yes, I am talking about ranking. Thanks again Diane

First your site gets indexed by Google meaning it was found by Google and now it is a good time to start adding content which you are already doing.

However, first your posts get indexed and often days later down the line start getting noticed provided targeted keywords are searchable, new websites can rank efficiently.

But typically "authority" for a website starts to get established through time, usually the 3-6 month mark.

They fluctuate up and down the scale till Google decides where to place them.

Not all posts will get ranked, thus the recommendation to keep updating blog 2 - 3 posts a week and that's for the foreseeable future.

Of course, onward sharing to social media platforms.

Thanks very much Abie, I appreciate your help

You're very welcome!

No one can say for sure; it depends.
But you can submit your post to each platform after publishing to make it faster.

Thanks for that, I appreciate your help. How do you submit it to each platform? Talk to you soon.

That depends on a lot of factors. Make sure that you have a sitemap set up with Google to enhance crawling. I know that it has taken a couple of weeks for some of mine early on.

Thank you so much.

You're welcome.
