You need to write more articles and then move them to the niche sites. That's where all the traffic is.
Honestly, I think it is all a matter of luck, but the higher the number of articles, the better your chances something will hit the search engines.
All I would suggest is that, write more articles (good quality articles) and get them featured. Be consistent with it and the algorithm will pick you up and soon you'll be able to get some traffic as soon as the people start searching topics according you your content. Don't try backlinking, it hardly works, the only way is to be consistent with your work.
Write solid content and appeal to the many, not the few. Your Valentine's article is from a Christian perspective. The many looking for Valentine's day articles are looking for heart-tingling writing, not sermons. Things such as this are points you need to consider. You can write pieces such as that to go in the Christianity section, but if you wrote from a neutral perspective you'd appeal to the larger market. I only skimmed it over and just the one article, but it's what I saw.
The piece is in Christianity section already. Valentine is all about Christianity is not about how the world interpreted it to be.
Am not talking about appealing. Am talking on how to make it reach to many.
The problem is... the 'many' aren't interested. Valentine's Day has changed into a commercial event.
Gwenny used 'appealing' in the sense that it means people are attracted to it. Not in the sense of 'pleading'.
You missed the point of what I said. Why write for Christians only? No matter what perspective you write from, you'll still be Christian. You asked about drawing traffic. There are others in the world besides Christians, is my point. Consider writing for others. I have no idea if all of your articles are from that perspective. Whether they are or are not, perspective should always be considered.
It's a large world out there. I am in the same boat. I tried to write primarily for those I relate to through faith or perspective; it failed me, so I speak from experience. I am branching out.
At the same time, I'm temporarily rather slow to post due to health issues and the wait for surgery being so very long here in Canada. I went to emergency last October and am still waiting for surgery, even though it was determined urgent. Shrugs.
My prayer is that the power of the holy Ghost will heal you from any infirmity in Jesus name. AMEN!!!!!!
Your question cannot be answered, at least not as if now.
If I have to keep it short I will say. Fill the content gap.Write which is widely needed or is in demand but no one is writing about it.
But is their any topic like that? Yes, you just need to do enough research for every article you post. Who knows your 10 articles bring traffic like for someone with 100.
You also have to remember that most of the people who read articles on this site are westerners, so taking the perspective of women being subservient to men is not going to garner a lot of fans. Even among Christians. Especially when you consider that women make up 50%, or more, of your potential readers. This is the 21st century and woman are generally seen as equal partners in a relationship. Different, but equal.
Oh dear, at what theraggededge said. North Americans, and I am going to go out on a limb and say probably most Christian females included, don't want to read that. Also, you come across as judgmental in comparing women to Satan.
No am not comparing women with setan. Women are wonderfully and fearfully made by God.
But am trying to talk on what lack of submission can cause. It is lack of submission that caused setan to be thrown out of heaven.
You asked for suggestions how to increase traffic to your articles. We are pointing out that material like this is a massive turn-off for readers.
"Is not a kind of family that the wife rebels against the husband as setan did against God."
That is equating the non-submission of a wife to the non-submission of Satan. That will not go down well with any modern reader.
What can lack of submission cause?
Why can't a woman be equal to a man?
Why can't a man and woman discuss issues and agree to compromise? Or maybe on some issues, the man makes a decision but on others, the woman decides?
Again, what is the case for 'submission'. You are referring to two adults. Why is one superior to the other?
I'm supporting you in return, and genuinely so
Well, I love my partner and my children, but in this house, the women are in charge That doesn't mean my man is a pushover or henpecked. It's just that he's hopeless at practical decisions. He knows his strengths, as do I, but running the house isn't one of them.
Edit: And neither is expected to 'submit' to the other. The idea of it is revolting.
I hear you. My husband through his own life experience picked up an expectation for women to bow. It has been a long road towards achieving success in changing that.
You are clearly defining that a man is not smarter in every matter, or necessarily in any matter, women either. We are the same in that sense (men and women). This is logic.
Mutual respect goes a long way. He's good at some things, I am good at everything else
Oh, and a sense of humour is absolutely necessary.
And wine. And chocolate. And crisps/chips. And dogs.
Lastly, the ability to dish out the silent treatment is paramount
Sorry, too much red wine.
Uhm you did compare women with Satan. You said that if they would not submit, they are like Satan fighting against God, which likens men to God energies.
That is odd, as Satan would be half of God energies. If God is all-powerful, that means he created Satan from his infinite self. Also, everything in this universe is dichotomous to provide balance, lest the universe would collapse. There is no up without down. There is no hot without cold. There is no north without south. There is no sun without moon, hot without cold.
Then, God is half female and half male, and half good and half bad. There is no other possibility. From ancient texts we know that God energies are no more male than female, and logic has it that they'd be no more good than bad, or vice versa.
I enjoyed reading this forum discussion. It really gained traffic...lol
As BevG said a sense of humour is necessary...
The world has been changed. Equality is everyone’s right
Mutual respect is the most important thing.
BevG I liked this statement of yours:
“Mutual respect goes a long way. He's good at some things, I am good at everything else “
GwennyOh I am happy that you managed it wisely as you said , “ My husband through his own life experience picked up an expectation for women to bow. It has been a long road towards achieving success in changing that. “
So the ladies won the match ... lol
