Now I am quite confident of my keyword research when it comes to niche sites that can do well in low competitive areas.
However I am not doing that good when it comes to research for keywords to be used in article titles that are submitted to third party article directories. These are some of the top (Alexa < 200) I am talking about. I am having some articles with over thousand visits per month while others with less than 50 visits per month. I am not sure why traffic is this inconsistent.
I could realize, few parameters like competition needs to be relaxed a bit for article directories as they bring visitors using variety of ways not just relying on SE traffic. If I relax competition I am not sure to what extent I should relax them. Also is there are some hot categories which consistently receive traffic ?
using keywords not only in title but also use in article. it will make better seo friendly to rank. any article addition to article directories cause, creation of new pages. and it takes time to get rank for new pages, so wait for rank don't hopeless
It may not solely be due to keyword research alone if you are not getting the desired traffic to your articles. Focus on (1) keyword rich title and 2) compelling introduction that makes people want to continue reading.
