RE: Steemit.com Dropping in Alexa Rank - Write Posts Reflecting Current Trends to Catch SEO Traffic!
The issue is the lack of feedback and gamification for people going out and doing so.
I love Twitter because I know my impressions, link clicks, profile views and so on. It’s fun when I can see I’m getting 50k impressions and look at the conversation rate into other metrics.
I could not tell you how my content on Steemit is performing outside of what metrics I see on where I share it on other sites and, upvotes or comments. I need more information and it's frustrating not knowing.
I even tried using a dapp that had google analytics so I could better understand my traffic. Sadly that content was seen as duplicate t and hidden/delisted from results. I had several Cornerstone content pieces I wrote that where very time consuming and while I could see the short term massive spike in impressions and clicks it was short-lived when it got hit for being duplicate content on that dapp.
We also have all these other apps and frontends getting their own traffic. Steemit the website itself is not that great of user experience. While I still promote my Steemit URLs to the outside world I’ve considered using Steempeak. So many are already use it and it’s just more enjoyable to use.
