    Songquan,

    I am also diving back into Pinterest.  I am trying to get in front of more potential buyers.

    Songquan,

    If I were to guess – based on my uneducated opinion – I’d think those dead lists hurt you.  Getting them fixed should help get you back into the SEO game soon.

    Spend some time on your About page, too.  Make sure you get a Yoast green light on that page.  (It actually amazes me how some of our fellow artists on this platform are not creating About pages. In today’s world, would you put your credit card information into a web site that does not tell you where the person is located – including what country they are in – or anything about the person?)

    Songquan,

    From my experience, you do not need to hit that 300-word count with every post.  I post a daily photo of the day, and I never hit 300 words on those daily posts.  I add that post to my Facebook business page, Twitter, and Google+.  I will soon be posting it daily onto Linkedin, too.

    I would suggest you continue to feed your blog and try to hit those300-wordd marks from time to time. And do lists.  They will help you get better search results. But smaller “photo” posts work too.  One thing I noticed is that I get listed in those Google Images searches.  Sometimes, I am high on those pages, other times not.

    Mark,

    Since you’ve already tried other reviews plugins, perhaps someone else will have another idea for you.

    Hi Mark,

    I searched Google with these words “wordpress plugin product reviews woocommerce” and found some plugins.

    Hey Chris,

    Are reviews the same as comments?  I was thinking reviews are things like where you put a rating )stars_ and recommendations, likes, etc.

    Mark,

    I do not recall seeing any setting to turn reviews on in Products.  What I might try, if it were important to me, would be to change the theme temporary to WordPress default.  Then I’d check to see if the reviews were there.  That would tell me where to look for the solution.  Don’t know if that helps or not, but might be something for you to consider. Perhaps someone else will have a better answer for you.

    Mark:

    Do you mean in the products?  If so, I don’t think or know if that is possible.  There might be a plugin for WooCommerce that would allow that.  However, would you want anyone to post anything there when you are trying to make sales?

    If you want comments in posts, that is a WordPress thing and can be easily turned on or off.

    Songquan,

    I’d submit to you that it is great to get just “lookers” at your site.  And for a variety of reasons, too.  Just as a store doesn’t mind browsers, you want to keep people coming to your site.  Remember the search engines are watching. And they are going to position you on search results – so the more traffic you are getting, the more they are going to move you up the list.

    Lookers or browsers could become customers, too.  Are you selling prints?  Or fine art?

    One other thought for you – get as many travel bloggers to your site as you can by linking and friending them.  They might become clients or might mention you – and spread the word about your amazing work to an editor, client, photo buyer, agency, etc.

    To help with your effort to increase traffic and sales, I’d suggest you spend some time with the webmaster’s tools:

    Google

    Bing

    Tip: Bing seems to really like Yoast’s sitemaps.

    Steve,

    Despite several issues I see, I am still optimistic that 2017 will be better than this year.  It has been a lot of work this year, and I am currently planning 2017 (equipment, social networking, shooting schedule, etc.) . My traffic is improving weekly, and other opportunities are coming in – for example, I was just asked to be a judge – which is a paying gig.

    I agree with Chris comments.  I do think keywords is so important, if you want your images to be found.

    Jean,

    The wrong version of Woo Commerce could be a real issue for you.  I believe Robin has said the later version uses a different database structure.  That is if I recall correctly.

    Hi Vassia:

    Your code looks like something generated by Microsoft Office, to me.  I suspect your issue with the Symzio widget is likely in the WordPress theme you are using.  Since one widget is working for you, go into the WordPress Dashboard, then Appearance, and then Widgets.  Position the widget where you want it.  Be sure to “open” it and fill out the info – (sizes, number of images, etc.).  Save that information in the Widget, and see if that fixes your issue.

     

    George
