Hi! I think I got a weird SEO problem… A few years ago I create a small site and upload it on a paid hosting. Then I aborted that paid hosting plan and moved the content to a blogger blog: www.Fruitsandhealth.blogspot.com
The problem is the blog now is nowhere to be found on search engines… Before it was one the first page on Google using just “fruits health” keywords, no is nowhere :injured:
As I’ve just said in another message, Sitepoint (like most other reputable forums) is “nofollow”, so search engines will completely ignore any links in your signature or the body of your message. And I’ve no idea what “DP forums and warrior forum” are…
Create a facebook and twitter profile and drive traffic to your site by creating a following
That’s only really a good strategy when the website is under continual development. It’s going to be difficult to create a following or a community when everything that will ever be on the website is there already - what are you going to put in your tweets? I’m not saying it isn’t worth trying, but for this kind of site I don’t think it will give a great return on the investment.
could be that all your previous back links are pointing to your previous site rather than your new one. My advice is to start building backlinks again.
you could be onto something here, the OP didn’t say whether his old site used to be top in the Google rankings or whether his new blog was it. Could be that he made the mistake of not 301 redirecting from old to new and checking the backlinks.
Do follow forums and blogs like here at sitepoint - start by creating a signature in your profile page and post your new blog url. Thengo to DP forums and warrior forum
In other words, start spamming? No, I don’t want to get into an argument about this, but this advice isn’t spelled-out very well. And did you know that Sitepoint signatures are not only no-follow, they aren’t even visible to search engines. So that advice is pretty pointless in terms of SEO.
The first thing to do is to decide whether you want a blog or a website. At the moment, it looks like a website - you’ve got a load of content that you added all at once, and that you’ve done nothing to for four months. Now that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it isn’t what you could really call a blog. A blog should be a living thing, regularly updated, building a community - and that involves more of a commitment to keep it up to date.
Then you need to get the word out about your site/blog. Social networking and social bookmarking tools can be a good place to start, as well as trying to get links from other relevant sites.
(PS - your picture on the “honeydew melon” is a galia melon, not a honeydew!)
I’ll get back to you with a couple of possible explanations, but keep in mind, if you don’t actively do something with your site, i.e. promote it or add fresh content to it, you’re bound to fall behind your competition.
