you'd be surprised at how little of common sense is applied in the real world.

maybe common sense was the wrong phrase. It seems like many of these solutions are just basic answers to really simplistic problems: Why is no one visiting our site? Because it is outdated, not optimized, and has no content = Make some improvements

This is part of what hindered me in getting started. "But these advices are as obvious as Sun Tzu's Art of War, everyone does it".

What I got reading the groovehq blog post that was posted here was that you should be spending little bit of time on multiple strategies until you find one that sticks.

More importantly keeping experiments cheap, fast and not so time consuming to put out in the wild. I liked that <10hr approach from the other HN comment.
