i have been doing seo for niches in Germany buy purchasing english backlinks. But after the penguin update it is just not as effective anymore. I need to purchase tons of links to see satisfying results for medium competitive keywords and at the end i am spending a ton of money and the sites just do not rank or at least they stay for a while in the top and then they lose their rankings, i have tried anchor text diversification but even then it seems like i always need a lot of english links to get decent results and you pay for our german links almost a lot more than you would for english links. Do you have some ideas on how to handle it ? I kinda lost my income after the most recent updates and i do not really know where to start now, since i have no clue about link building, only about purchasing and stuff.
Would be cool if some of you guys could point me in the right direction. Right now it is so that i am reading tons of methods but i do not really know where to start and what to do and if this is right for me and it is just so complicated and my mind is all over the place here.
