Does 1/ln(x+1) converge or diverge?

I've tried the nth term test, limit comparison test, and integral test. All I get is inconclusive. The other tests I have (geometric series, p-series, telescoping series, alternating series, and root tests) don't apply. What can I use?!

As x-> infinity, 1/ln (x+1) approaches zero. That means that it converges.
Is that the limit you had in mind?

As x-> -1, it converges to zero
As x-> 0, it diverges, since ln 1 = 0
ln (x+1) is undefined for x<-1

No, I wondered if the sum converged, not the sequence. Sorry

    If you have a geometric alternating series, and you prove that the series is converging by doing geometric series test, and NOT alternating series test, then does that allow you to say that the series converges ABSOLUTELY?

    find the sum of the series of (-2)^n/3^n+1. This is an alternating series... what if we rewrite it as an= (1/3)* (-2/3)^(n) Divide any nth term by the n-1 term and see if you get a ratio term r. This might be a geometric series.
