Let me start with the bad news. The reason you are not getting more traffic from Google is because you are doing the wrong things. It's ok though, because I was too. Then I figured out what the key to Google traffic was. Sure, there are over 200 ranking factors, but most of them are not that important. And once I figured that out, my SEO results started to change. Big time.

I went through a lot of different reasons in my head, and then it dawned on me.
Have you heard about the Google Mobile Interstital Penalty they are going to roll out on the 10th of January? Yes, another big slap from Google is coming (I wish I did not have to just write such negative posts all the time! I have not even moved to HTTPS yet) And even if it turns out not to be that big, it's worth paying attention to it - because they have our visitors in mind! OK, So Wh.
I have some great news for you! SEO is going to get even simpler in 2017! Woo hoo, let's all do a little dance. via GIPHY Sorry, I was only joking. I hate dancing.

Do you also find Google is not delivering you the traffic you deserve? It is getting harder and harder to compete on the internet and only those who know how are really getting results.

Hand up if you believe SEO is a waste of time? You are certainly not alone. Most bloggers, small business owners or solopreneurs have given up on good ol’ SEO. And I certainly can’t blame you. It is not as simple as it used to be. But, if you follow certain steps traffic is almost guaranteed.
It happens every time you write. Your content is epic. Your readers are ecstatic. You get lots of social media shares... But you have no idea how to write and optimize your articles for SEO in 2016.
