I've been a webmaster for over 10 years. Three months ago, I launched my first WordPress site, thinking that it would help me get better visibility in search engines.
My new site contains audio comedy routines using text-to-speech voices and sound effects and features the Who's on first comedy routine of Abbott and Costello, The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, etc. (www.quass.com)
I find it hard to believe that nobody ever searches for audio versions of these classic comedy routines, but that's what my stats seem to suggest. I have received NO search engine traffic, for instance, for the comedy routine by Abbott and Costello and only ONE referral for my recorded reading of Edgar Allan Poe's Raven. ONE.
In fact, I have now created about 60 comedy routines for which I've provided custom meta tags using an SEO plug-in -- and I have received almost NO traffic for any of these posts from search engines???
I had thought that WordPress would help me make pages that potentially had better listings -- or at least would help me get organized and attend to my meta tags better.
But the meta descriptions and titles I'm using seem to make no difference whatsoever.
People say, you have to get links TO your blog to get better listings in search engines -- but how can I do that when my site has (almost literally) NO visibility online? People have to at least know my site exists before they can love it or hate it.
Also, what's up with the subscriber stats: I show 124 subscribers on my wordpress site but only ONE subscriber at Google -- to which I submitted the site three months ago.
Should I bring the site down and try something new? Or launch an advertising blitz? Or am I doing something wrong regarding meta tags and site organization?
