I started a news website about 15 days ago and have been getting on average about 7 clicks a day from google and bing haven't even indexed my site... It have many categories and it is kinda big since I have about 1900 posts since the lunch... Google have so far indexed 3500 links to my site (posts, pages, categories, tags, etc) or of about 5000 total submitted. I get between 150 impressions and 450 search impressions per day and have had more than 500 unique visits since the lunch and 34% are organic. The thing is I am not sure I am doing it right. I mean I don't know how to optimize my website for search engines. I always optimized small websites but not a website this big. On average we are having between 150 to 300 new posts per day.
How can I build my back links? Is it different from building links for small sites?
Is there a special way to rank for keywords? I really have no idea how to optimize such a website. So please help me out and i will be most appreciative and will be very ready to return the favor if you pm me or post it as a reply.
Thanks in advance.
