    Not Getting Referral Traffic


    Hello Guys

    I came again with new problem. I am handling pianist project last 3 month. When I started there is only 2 unique backlink. So I have started to create backlink. Most of the backlink I have created in Niche directory i.e music, musician and wedding pianist site. Apart from this I have done business listing in most popular sites of usa, but I still not getting any referral visits from these site. Generally we get traffic from yelp, yellowpages, hotfrog ..... directory, but whenever I checked referral traffic, we just got referral visits from spam/bot site....................

    Please help

    It takes years of dedicated effort to hone your abilities and JUST SEO isn't all that useful.

    Hire a gifted pianist that can tell a story... Someone with ENORMOUS PASSION for the piano, who can provide massive understanding to Schnabel's Beethoven, Kempff's Brahms, Rubinstein's Chopin, Cortot's Schumann, Richter's Prokofiev, Laroccha's Albinez, etc.

    You'll magically acquiire what you desire without doing any SEO.

    Why are you expecting to get referral traffic from these sites? What are you offering on these sites that is going to drive the traffic through to your website? It's like trying to sell a car by the side of a busy road, if you don't put a for sale sign in the window nobody is going to know it's for sale. You need to draw these users in somehow, these directories are all great to be listed on but they aren't the holy grail of traffic UNLESS you offer something unique.

    Why don't you try participating on such subject related forum/community sites? You can also use sites like scoop.it and storify.com

    Also there are specific course/tuition sites that list local tuition providers, where real people look for lessons. These sites would be better in offering the right kinds of people looking, even if they cost a little bit.

    Posting unique ideas on my blog and sharing them on social media has also been quite good for me.
