Diary (and questions) leeuwtje ranking money site from #8 back to #1
Hello, first of all this site is amazing! I highly appreciate your work.
My goal: One of my money sites www.dutchkeyword.com (google.nl) was ranking #1 till one year ago. First I was thinking I got bad badlinks, therefor I removed some bad backlinks in Google backlink removal tool. But I don't think this was the problem. Competition rise, and I made a stupid change to my onpage SEO. So, now I am ranking #8 and I want to rank #1 again. Of course I changed onpage SEO perfectly.
Month 1: I did everything of the topic http://www.rankersparadise.com/cheap-seo-packages/.
I indexed all the backlinks (tumblr backlinks) and the day before yesterday they were all indexed and I was ranking #5 or #6!! Unfortunately, at this moment two days later almost all of the articles are de-indexed again and I am ranking back to #8.... How is this possible and do I need to take some other actions for example index them again with a new gmail account and ip (1)?
I am planning to proceed to month 2 beginning april, but I got a few questions:
(2) The cheap seo packages article refers to http://www.rankersparadise.com/free-backlinks/ for building the 10 tier 1 and 10 tier 2 links. When I check the "This is what my web 2.0 link wheel finished up like:" excel example and go to the URL all sites (tier 1 and tier 2) are linking directly to the money site. I thought tier 2 is linking to tier 1 or am I wrong?
(3) Since I want to rank for a dutch keyword, will it be better if I write my articles in Dutch?
So, I really hope to get some answers since it's almost the end of month 1 and ranking did go up but also down. Thank you super much and hope to hear.
1. as i understand, those 5 tier 1 web 2.0 will link to your money site and to the other same tier web 2.0 while the other tier 2 will link to your money site, tier 1 site and to tier 2. this, as what i understand. you can take a look at this service if you want it to be done by someone else: http://a.seoclerks.com/linkin/561460/Web20/504768/10-Site-Two-Tier-New-Web-2-0-Link-Wheel-Backlinks , i believe this is the same service that nick uses for web 2.0 link wheel.
2. yes i would say to use a dutch article since your keyword is in dutch and to make it look more realistic although using a dutch keyword on an english article is ok.
hope this helps.
I just ended the second month of the 3 month plan: http://www.rankersparadise.com/cheap-seo-packages/
Unfortunately I am still 9. I started at #8 / #9 and one day in the first month I reached #6, further there is no improvement. Two years ago I was the number #1 for this keyword and when I look to the top #8 they are far less optimised for this keyword than I am. I am very affraid I got something like a penalty or something else that is wrong?
So after month 2 no improvement, I do have to say the site was hacked for a few days which is solved now. Also before the hack after month 2 no improvement. I used the exact gigs from the post. Probably start with month 3 but I am affraid I won't improve, while (this is very interesting) in BING.com I am the #1 spot. And if I am honest, I feel like my site needs to be the #1 spot in google as well, it is a keyword.com site. In the top 7 are sites without text at all.
Please help me, is there someone I can send my site to? I just don't know what is going on, why I won't move up and I tried literally everything from the post.
As I understand you have 1500 social signals, 15 High PA Tumblr backlinks, a 20 site web 2.0 link wheel and doc and video shares and blog comments?
Have you copied the anchor text profile of the top ranking site?
In month 3 try to get your anchors looking like the anchors of the top ranking site....
I would definitely use this strategy:
Use long tail exact match anchors on tier 2, that will do the trick 🙂
The thing is the top ranking sites does almost have none backlinks, so that is why I found it so trange I am not ranking higher..
I will start month 3 this month (40+ high tumblr backlinks) do you suggest to write a link wheel myself this month besides all the tumblr backlinks?
Also, can you please take a look at my site maybe you find something wrong: http://zwangerschapskussens.com (ranking for zwangerschapskussen in google.nl)
Well, I finished the full 3 months (DID EVERYTHING!!).. Waited long enough and I can tell you my site (low competion) DROPPED one place. From #9 to #10. I can tell you there was a little increase in DA/PA. They rised from DA=23 and PA=27 to DA=24 and PA=30. Unfortunately - although it is low competion - no movement at all! I am very disappointed, I feel like I waisted three full months.
The moment I found this site sharing all these great methods I was so happy. Finally something I trusted and something I was looking for for so long! And this great support forum.. Turns out the technique is not working (for me) and most of my questions (even after sharing the exact url) leave unanswered. But I get it, you are probably super busy and this is a free forum - the thing is I don't know what to do anymore and I am even willing to pay for advise based on my url
Sorry for the late reply.
Your keyword "zwangerschapskussen" has a Long Tail Pro has a keyword competitive score of 27, which is very low, and has a good search volume of 3600.
The web 2.0 3 month backlink strategy is enough to rank you top.
I have a few questions:
What anchors did you use?
I had a quick scan over the content, do you have any internal links in the post or outbound links to authority sites? Doesn't look like you do....
On Long Tail Pro the top ranking site for your keyword is showing to have 17 external backlinks "https://www.voedingskussenwinkel.nl/product-categorie/zwangerschapskussen/" and is showing your site to have zero backlinks.
You need to check to make sure your backlinks have remained in the index.....
Are all your backlinks indexed?
That will not be a problem to knock the top site off, the content on that site is poor.
SEO SPYGLASS is showing that the top site has 59 backlinks...more than long tail pro shows, 39% of their anchors are exact match.
Some of the backlinks are from niche related link exchange sites. Your target should be to get 60 backlinks using exact match anchors and open url anchors. Go and get some nich related forum links and niche related PBN links. If you want me to source you some good niche related PBN links for you just let me know.
You do have a bit of work to do here, there is more to be done than just web 2 backlinks with this after a little research has been done.
SEO SPYGLASS is free and I advise everyone to get it.
If you need any more help just let me or Caroline know and we will help you as much as we can 🙂
Hi Nick, Thank you so much for your information! This has been REALLY helpfull and highly appreciated. At the moment I am building the 60 niche related exact match anchors. I will wait for them to index and come back here to post the results.
One question: You are talking about niche related PBN links. "If you want me to source you some good niche related PBN links for you just let me know." I would like to get more information, does this mean to find niche related sites I am able to get a link from? Or to build a web 2.0 link wheel?
