Great SEO, but no one reads my post.
So, what went wrong?
I made all the corrections
They said would make my writing strong.
But my Search Engine Optimization didn’t bring the web traffic along.
I put in the right amount of tags
And categories too.
I crunched the numbers perfectly:
Not too many, not too few.
Yet, obviously my post was not
Among the chosen few
That get more than two hits at that.
Tell me, what did I do?
Did I make my poetry too long?
Were my search terms not “all that”?
Do I want too much recognition,
And does someone smell a rat?
To covet fame or glory
Does not behoove one such as I,
Who has pledged to honor Christ
And on His strength I do rely.
Yet I believe my SEO
Has somehow lied to me,
Leading me to think that
Perfect writing is the key
To getting readers for my posts.
I think there must be more,
Something that I have not been told
But I should not ignore.
For it doesn’t seem to make my page views
Go up much if at all.
To see my site’s statistics
Makes me feel rather small.
Perhaps there’s just too many people
Trying to be heard
On social media’s many sites.
Each wants to share a word.
They do their SEO research
And yet their posts don’t fly.
Perhaps a flaw lies in the system
On which they do rely.
For programs don’t do miracles,
But what’s impossible with man
Is possible with God.
To trust in Him is my best plan.
