No hits on my blog

  1. No one is reading my blog, what am I doing wrong?

    The blog I need help with is hindsburyprimary.wordpress.com.

  2. You are not using tags or categories. You still have the default category 'uncategorised', you need to change that. A few of your posts have the same titles, and also there is no 'real' content as your posts are like updates, some posts have just one sentence, and so search engines will have absolutely nothing to bring up in searches.

  3. Are you actually serious or are you insane?

  4. I am insane and I am glad that you have noticed that

  5. I have a knack for it. Thanks for clearing that up.

  6. Judging from your photo it takes one to know one...

  7. @brewsterkathyann i gave you the answer, perhaps you should concentrate on working on that.

  8. @thegiddygoat my last two comments were not directed at you but at ardpete . I have deleted two posts already and will work on improving the others. anymore suggestions that you may have please let me know. Thanks.

  9. I know your comments weren't directed at me, but you came here for an answer and i gave it, the other stuff is unecessary. As for your blog you need to remember that 'content is king' you need to blog posts with plenty of content, maybe even an image or two, and add the appropriate tags and categories, and do what i first advised, then all should be well.

  10. And also, don't add posts with the same titles, or Google will ignore you.

  11. I like it, and you, you're funny. I'll keep on reading.
