Background about site : I have a website which is similar to question and answer site like StackOverFlow, but NOT user generated content and only one answer. Me and a few friend create the pages / posts. And this site is for programmers.

Example Page of my website:

How to Add your WordPress custom post types to your sites main RSS feed by default?

Registering a custom post type does not mean it gets added to the main RSS feed automatically in WordPress.You need to use request filter to add custom post types to main RSS feed.

// Add 'books' custom post types on main RSS feed
function add_book_post_types_to_rss($qv) {
    if (isset($qv['feed']) && !isset($qv['post_type']))
        $qv['post_type'] = array('post', 'books', );
    return $qv;
add_filter('request', 'add_book_post_types_to_rss');

Currently we have 75+ posts and we hope to add 500+ pages within two years. Almost all pages are very similar to above page.

The problem we have faced

We targeting mostly SEO traffic for this site. But we have very less organic traffic even our website is one year old.

We thought following reason is the main reason for it.

  • Lack of content in single page / post : As you already see this page has about just 50 words and we don't like adding some garbage words to just increase word count. We are focusing on adding more pages/ posts and make big resources collection about WordPress, PHP, JavaScript, etc.

Is there any solution for overcome this problem?

  • I will think about my keywords position not about traffic. If only few people search query is matched with my page, then how I can get more traffic on it?. So add your site into search console and look into search analytics reports. The less content also rank very well, SO is example of that. – Goyllo Aug 17 '17 at 5:06
  • @closetnoc I think this is not a duplicate question for it because I have specify what is the problem in my website. I am finding a solution for that specific problem. And this is difference than webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/107356/… also because I am asking about 'Lack of content in single page / post'............. – I am the Most Stupid Person Aug 17 '17 at 5:14
  • @Goyllo We have already research about it and problem is not that.... I mean there are good search queries, but our site in 2-10 pages most time.......... – I am the Most Stupid Person Aug 17 '17 at 5:16

    While shorter content can perform very well in Google, this content only performs well when it can answer questions. This is because the answer engine picks up on content that can answer questions from the knowledge graph. The format of your content, or at the example you provided, does not allow for inclusion into the knowledge graph. You will need to study this. Your content, less code, is not enough. Remember code does not make for good searchable content and often fails. So what is left when the code is removed? Not much. This is where you answer questions. Work on that. – closetnoc Aug 17 '17 at 6:10
