I started a Technology news blog last month. I am promoting the contents via several social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. Posting links to 10-20 related FB groups, Google+ communities, etc. But even after one month, it’s world ranking stood at above 4 lakh and getting 100 visitors/day only(if there’s posting). I am fed up with the process.
One year back, I started another blog in regional language. For that, I was able to get a world ranking within 1,50,000 by the first month.
I would like to know, what’s the error with my work? How can I drive more traffic to my site?
Any detailed guidance is appreciated
