I'm assuming the link in your signature is the site you're trying to rank for, so if that is the case I've got a bit of advice. The pictures are nice, but you need some text content on the homepage that will match your meta-keywords. No search engine actually uses meta-keywords anymore - they're more interested in the visible content of your page. The images should also have alt tags that are readable to people rather than a list of all your keywords.

Let's see, the location of the site probably isn't doing you any favors. I don't know much about WiX but I assume they provide free hosting and website building... unfortunately, being a third level folder on a big domain isn't going to get you much traction in the search rankings. Look for your own relevant domain to register and experiment with different content management systems of your own.

If you use article marketing, you will need at least 40 well written articles (keyword optimized) before you start seeing results.

getting good rankings in Google is not as easy as it used to be. I own about 15 websites and my traffic got cut in half with the latest penguin update in April.

You need to get high quality links to your website in order to get rankings. Try asking your customers if you can cut them a deal on the price of your service in exchange for a link to your website.

Its also alot more important to be active in social media (twitter, facebook, G+)

And adding great content is essential for good rankings

Yes, adding back links may help.

Although by using more specific long tailed keywords in addition to the single commonly used words may help to bring your rankings up.

It would be a good idea to read the panda and penguin updates before committing to a new strategy.

Good Luck,

Social networking sites only helps to get visitors & traffic for your website. For getting good ranking on the search engines for your targeted keywords then you have to collect quality backlinks for your website with your targeted keywords. So apply link building techniques with the white hat SEO optimization

It really depends on the website. I have a new site and it ranked #49 in Google US and got PR1 in just 3months. I'm using the same strategy as you. Just continue what you are doing and wait for the results. Just remember not to spam.
