Question Blog Issue! Need Help!

Hello all,

I had created blog in wordpress almost prior two months. I have optimized the blog. I have added three pages and various categories including post for each category depending on the theme of the blog.

What I observed that I am not getting much traffic from it nor the blog pages are getting crawled frequently. The pages have not been crawled from almost last one month. I have created many blogs before this but in wordpress I didn't found way to individually add Meta description, title, tags to the blog.

Please suggest me how to add Meta description, Meta tag and title to the blog. At present my blog don't has Meta description, Meta tag and title to the blog. Is this one of the reason that my blog is not getting crawled? What to do?

Frequency of indexing is primarily related to link popularity. The more popular a page/site, then the more frequent the spidering.

You should include unique title tags, but based on my experiences that is not the issue when it comes to why your blog isn't being spidered more frequently.

How many other sites link to your blog?

Regarding the title tag/etc, if you search google for wordpress title tag you will see detailed instructions/etc

A blog is like any other site you need incoming links. Try posting on other blogs etc.

The easiest way to add meta tags is to use a plugin such as Platinum SEO Pack. Boxes will appear somewhere on your edit page, so you can add your text.

It is always good to have the at least a meta description for every post or page that you publish.

Try approaching some bloggers in a similar category and see if you can do a guest post, or offer them something they can't offer their readers themselves (a guest post, contest, free consultation, etc) in exchange for some links.

I think your issue can be solved with frequent ad regular post with quality content as 3 months is not too long. Just try to focus on content you will get traffic soon.

If you have already covered the content, you need to visit other sites/blogs, comment on these sites and link back. After a while, you should start noticing changes. Consider three factors:

- relevance of content;
- regular activity;
- interaction with other similar websites/blogs.

I use Wordpress for my blog, and I usually use their tool for including tags (on the right-hand side of the page). Also try the SEO platinum pack for inserting an SEO rich title and trending keywords.
And I agree with the previous posters on the need of keeping fresh posts coming. Also, try submitting each new post to social bookmarking sites like StumbleUpon and Digg.

When i started my blog I had the same issue.

However once I started linking sites to my blog and the articles I posted went viral on twitter and facebook automatically the blog started to get many hits.

its simple.. do a favor and post/reply/review on other blogs and hope that they will return the favor. for the most part people do.

Also my blog is not specific to a particular category. I only post articles that I read and find interesting and share it with the group of folks that share similar interests.
