    Need help with my blog.

    Hello all. I was wondering if I could get some advice. I have a blog (thewayofthedog.net) and I got up to 584 views. Lately I have got no views at all. my website is seeming like it dieing. I have Yoast SEO and am doing a lot of the things people say to do to get traffic. But I am just not getting traffic. Could somebody please take a look at my blog and try to give me advice? Thanks!

    Your biggest problem is that you are trying to compete against millions of other websites about dogs. Do you know anything about keyword research? Do you have an idea about how to find a narrower niche about dogs that you might be able to compete in?

    I have heard of keyword research.I just thought it was an SEO thing. I have Yoast SEO and it is really helpful, but I thought it helped you out with that.

    So, do you know any websites or stuff that would explain keyword research?

    Yoast can help with SEO but it's not magic - you only get out what you put in. You have to do keyword research and make sure your keywords are used properly. If you are using general keywords like "dogs" you will find that there is way too much competition - look into longtail keywords as a possible way to narrow down the search results.

    If you feel that someone's post helped you fix your problem, answered your question, or just made you feel better, feel free to "Like" their post. The "Like" link is at the bottom right of each post, along side the "reply" link. And if you are being helped here, try to help someone else - pass it on!

    Yoast is not a keyword research tool. It will help you target the keyword you tell it to but I suppose that's about it. There are very few quality keyword tools - most of those here use at least Google's Adwords tool and it does help some. Keyword research is an art (or science) and takes time to get the hang of it. Finding the best tools is not that easy. You will probably get a few suggestions here, but from those that take keyword research lightly.

    And is it an SEO thing? Of course it is. And so is nearly everything you do to build your website and online business.
