Improvements of our Motivational Quotes Site TheQuotes.Net



We have started our Motivational Quotes Website TheQuotes.Net around 2 years back. And, we are working hard to add lot of Motivational Quotes in various formats (Images, Text, Calendar App, Facebook App, Twitter App, Gallery, Videos, Quote of The Day Email,  etc) and adding many Inspirational Articles there. 

 This website is becoming popular among Motivational Quotes related groups in various social media websites including Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin Group, Google plus communities, Reddit, etc.

It got Google Page Rank PR3,  and mozRank is also improving. We made this site SEO friendly, and most part of the site is mobile-friendly now.

But, TheQuotes.Net is NOT getting visitors from Search Engines, especially it is not getting any traffic from Google. It is really very strange. I already contacted Google Team from Google Webmasters Tools, and they confirmed that there is NO manual action for this Site. So, it might have affected by any Google Algorithm changes  like Panda and Penguin. We are not doing any black-hat SEO. Anyway, I used Google's "Disavow Link Tool" for removing suspected bad backlinks including our own websites that are not relevant to TheQuotes.net.

But still there is no improvement in search traffic.  I have asked about this issue in various SEO Forums. Many people suggested that the excessive keywords may be the reason for the search problem. So, I removed repeated author names from various Quotes pages.


 
I tested the entire site for broken links, and there is no broken links there. And, I set this wordpress-based site with all SEO related plugins (WP Super Cache, All-in-One SEO pack, XML Site Map generator)

From adsense score card report, I came to know that I need to improve the page loading speed of TheQuotes.net
And, few days back  I have implemented cloudFlare which will deliver the pages quickly using many data centers and by implementing cache. I hope it will help the users to browse TheQuotes.net comfortably. From Google PageSpeed and Yahoo YSlow, I got many suggestions to improve the page performance further. I replaced the synchronous adsense code and Google Analytics code with Asynchronous version so that users can start reading the content without waiting for the loading of javascripts used by Google Adsense and Google Analytics.
And, I have updated the  Wordpress Theme to stop generating  unwanted headers. I de-activated the Adsense manager plugin and placed the asynchronous adsense code directly in the Template files. And, moved the javascript codes from header to bottom of the page, as YSlow and Google Pagespeed were complaining about rendering blocking scripts. All these things helped to increase the Google Pagespeed Score.
I am planning to wait for few days to see the impact of these changes, before start making any further changes. And, I am not sure whether these changes created any other issue. So, let me know if you find any issue when viewing TheQuotes.net website. And, let me know if you have any suggestion to solve this search rank issue.

And, for promoting TheQuotes.Net, we have created a Motivational Quotes eBook. You can download it freely from here. We plan to release Android app. and Wordpress plugin soon.
