NO-1 UK MRI teaching website but low search visits

I've read the FAQs and searched the help center. 
My URL is: mrimaster . com 


    We are a group of six highly qualified medical professionals (two doctors, two MSc MRI radiographers and two general radiographers). We designed ‘mrimaster’ to teach radiologists and radiographers all around the world. The site was fully launched with high quality contents in August 2013 (the only MRI teaching website ever made). We are receiving an average of 500 visitors per day. Out of which more than 250 are direct visitors and approximately 180 from referrals, adwords and bing traffic.

    We are hardly getting any visitors from Google. We employed a SEO company to do our business. Unfortunately, they have not done anything except from making some useless back linking. We managed to clear off almost all the SEO links that they built. Our site was not on the first three pages neither before nor after the SEO. We are technically very poor. Could someone help us to find the mistakes in our site?

Hello Ritu_singh 

A few things in no particular order that I notice:



Pages such as this have no indexable text content. Add content and see Image Guidelines and Tips for helping bots and people with sight issues to 'see ' your images.


re We are a group of six highly qualified medical professionals (two doctors, two MSc MRI radiographers and two general radiographers).

Where is this shown on the site? I didn't see an About Us page.
 

I find it unusual to have adsense ads interspersed with medical procedure content. Medical information is held to higher standards.


As for traffic dropping, it could be the Google Honeymoon, the time when new sites are given an artificial boost in search to see how users like them, is over.

Any SEO link-building done would likely do more harm than good as you discovered.


Also read through SEO Starter Guide for more tips.

The coding looks good at a first glance. Can't see any obvious signs of masking or bad coding that could cause problems.
VERY bad backlinks.

Try networking. Talking with people in the medical education field telling doctors who are in that field about your site so they can direct patients with questions to you.

Non-SEO matter, you may wish to move the History of MRI section off the home page and into its own page. It is about 7 1/2 times more information then the rest of the homepage.

Hi Ritu_singh,

I would like to point out that buying links or participating in dubious link exchange campaigns is against our Webmaster Guidelines: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/35769

After spending a few minutes trying to find the root cause of your site's problem, I stumbled upon a few pretty low quality sites that all have an anchor back to your site with the anchor text "what is an mri". I don't know who placed them there (it might have been your SEO) but this is really bad and if I were you I'd spend some time cleaning up these kind of links. 

Hope this helps.

Hello again


That is sort of a 'bots view' to see the text content on a page.

Google is a text based bot, and pages with a few images or text in images cannot be 'seen' by bots and humans.

That is why I linked to Google's guidelines on working with images. Alt tags are very important for Google images as well as for people with vision problems who may be using a special reader.

Go  back to that link and near the top right, in the grey bar, clcik on Full Version to see the cache of the page.
