7. You are not focused

“Jack of all trades” and master of none!

If you are writing for everyone and posting stories that are about everything you need to get focused. Write articles that are specifically about one industry, topic or niche. Know your market and stick to it. Don’t go off topic.

Do you just write an article when the mood suits you?  If you want people to become regular readers of your blog then you need to be consistent. 

10. Your headlines are not Attractive

10. Too many repeated heading tags

Whenever I analyze Speedyminds blog posts with no or low traffic, this is one big reason for almost no search engine traffic.

I used too many H2 or H3 heading tags in my articles.  I was trying to make my sub-headings stand out (size, typography, etc.)  This may have made my articles look great to my readers, but it adversely affected the SEO score of the articles.

 This may not be true of 100% of such cases, but for me, almost 80% of my posts with repeated H2 and H3 tags are getting no traffic.

Editing and correcting them clearly improved the visibility of the articles in organic searches.

Lastly, My suggestion for you is to keep improving your old content. Writing new content takes time, but improving existing blog posts is easy, and it greatly improves your results from those posts.

 Whenever I publish a new post, I go to my older posts that are related to the content, and I link to my new posts. This not only helps in improving the overall SEO of the old articles, but updated information always attracts more reactions from users in the form of comments and social media shares.
