My site was verified on Google, but I do not seem to be getting any traffic to my site.

Hi @We buy all k,
If you have your website connected to Google Analytics, that solves your inquiry.
Now you are wanting to know how to get on the first page of the SERPs (search engine result pages).
This is a rather complex issue generally not covered here, but since I do have expertise in this area, I will provide some basics to get you going in the right direction.
Once a small business creates a website, they must work on making that website a great user experience for visitors. How do they do that? They provide a well-structured website with relevant content presented on a fast-loading and mobile-responsive, modern website. It also must not have errors or issues that harm a visitor or that prevents Google from crawling your website.
Once Google Search Console is reviewed, let's check up on your site speed, mobile-friendliness and some SEO (search engine optimization) stuff. Search Console will also show you error pages, which is where your old page addresses will be listed. Any of those should have 301 redirects set up for them. You can check this as often as you like to catch them all... or you can go ahead and set up 301's for all of the old pages and redirect them to the corresponding new page address, respectively.
1) Visit Google Search Console.
2) Use the Google Developers Speed Test and work on fixing the issues so that your score is 89 or higher for both mobile & desktop.
3) Rerun the Google Speed Test but use this tool instead. Make sure you have a mobile score of 100.
4) Run your site through this SEO score checker.
5) Visit Google Analytics and setup your website.
Utilize the steps as they are outlined. Visit #1 and dig into your website actions with Google. Use #2 to bring your score up and get any optimized content to download & use. Complete everything and then go to #3. Complete everything and go to step #4. Now go to step #5 and dig into what is actually happening with visitors and your website.
From here, you need to have a strong and consistent social presence that is updated with content related to your products & services. And you need to utilize a local online presence by being listed on local directories (YP, BBB, etc.). And all of your online information needs to be consistent and correct.
All of this will be a continual process of repeating the above steps 2-3 times per month for the life of your business.
Tip: If you are not wanting to do any of this, do a search for a SEO company near you or one that you wish to work with and task them with it. If you want near instant traffic while you further "develop" your website, put AdWords to work.
Please have fun and enjoy the process.
