Hello. I have a question about the site in the essay niche. The site is six months old, but there is no traffic from the search, what could be the problem?
The link to the site is in my profile, I will be grateful if you look at it and give good advice.

Many thousand words.
You need hundreds of thousands of words to start to rank, unless it's a low competition niche with very low search volume, which yours isn't. Quality of articles also matters, of course

the education niche is very competitive. And the paper (essay) writing sub-niche, in particular, is even more competitive.

I tried promoting a similar (almost identical) program to yours last year, but I couldn't rank it. You need strong backlinks to rank content in the education niche, lots of good content, and even to win google's trust, which is a different matter in itself.

Either this, or go black hat. When I tried promoting this program I contacted their support team for advice on how to rank and get traffic and they told "forget white hat! This offer works best with black hat" :D

When I asked what black hat methods I should use they told me doorway pages, which is a term that I never heard of in 14 years of SEO until that point. Well, it's true that I never showed interest in black hat either, which is probably why I've never heard of this term before. But anyway, the point is that I checked on Wikipedia what "doorway pages" are and to create those pages you need automation software, which is something that I didn't have... well, I didn't know how to create those pages, either, it's not just I didn't have the software, so I had to drop this niche in the end...

My recommendation for you is to swap this niche for an easier one. Education, health, finance, travel, and business are very tough niches... or industries I should say. And it's not that they're competitive, but they're also heavily regulated by google, newbies like you and me can't penetrate these niches without strong brands, authority domains (which require a shit-ton of links), or big budgets for content creation (or automation software if you're going the black hat route).

I'm not trying to put you down by any means, all I'm trying to do is prevent you from wasting your time and money on something that you have no chance at succeeding... in the beginning anyway. If you're newbie to SEO and making money online, in general, I recommend you start with niches that are easier to rank in than the 5 I've mentioned above. I would say go for self improvement / self-help, arts, crafts & hobbies, pets, or technology... or any sub-niche / branch of these main topics, for me it's been easier to rank in these industries than the other 5 big ones
