Theoretically you could be buying traffic from someone who places the link to your website in some hidden way and potentially harmful for your business, for example let’s say you are selling ebooks and they guy whom you paid for that traffic is posting backlinks on website that have no connections to your niche, for example, some selling cars forum or something similar and he is basically baiting people into clicking to that hyperlink.
Harris then explained that he found the expired domain name 'ChristianTimesNewspaper.com' using the provider, ExpiredDomains.net. He paid $5 to buy this domain for his 'experiment'.

For our client: We rolled out a successful implementation of rel="author" for the three in-house content writers the company had. The client had over 300+ articles made by these content writers over the years and it was possible to implement rel="author" for all the aged articles.

I have been trying to produce more content because I believed the lack of traffic was to the small amount of content, but after reading your blog post, i’m beginning to doubt wether or not this is quality content. I will definitely do more research on influencers on my niche, now I have to figure out how to get their attention with my kind of content.
Aside from that, It seems like I’m doing much of what you listed in this blog post (*usually* great content, specific niche (I’m an Iranian fashion + social action blogger, so like ethical fashion…from an Iranian’s point of view haha) and have tried and tested so many SEO tactics but it still doesn’t seem to be helping grow my audience. I know that a lot of the visitors I’m gettting are converting into loyal readers, so I don’t think there is much issue with my level of content, but my blog seems to be hidden by search engines & I’m not sure why?
