  1. If you want to attract traffic to your website then apart from applying good marketing strategies it is also very important that you create valuable and good content. You should also be adding content on a regular basis and do not fall behind just because you didn’t get traffic. Patience is the key to content creation and marketing.

  2. WordPress can be either very easy or extremely hard. If you don’t want to do programming and happy with a plugin 80% suitable with your needs WordPress is for you. but if you want to tweak a plugin to become 100% what you want it is far easier to develop the whole website from scratch in php and laravel and jquery.
    So i say WordPress is easy if you don’t want to do the programming or want someone else to develop the plugin for you and you want to do only some simple modifications.
    So if you are the programmer stay away from WordPress.
