That's how competitive markets are nowadays. And you still shoot GSA spam and try to bullshit people you can rank commercial stuff 2017? Not really. However, client ordered, I guess from the typical flashy seo agency some article. paid 1,5k for that. guess he got the usual marketing fluff of shitheads that cant rank their site for "local seo agency" page 1... got a crappy article. not even targeting his main keyword in the title. got some shitty internal link in the article (what for???). page has OBL 37 and like 55 diferent internal links to other internal navigation. site is da 75 / DR 70. however, the article is burried so deep behind domain.com/articles/someniche/somedirectory/family/outdoor/8349234239,nameoftheartice,xyzdyamicbullshitbehindit I am more than sure, it wont receive any blip of linkjuice at all and some RD5 expired web.20 would have made a bigger impact.. sad, but thats "SEO" Reality. and the best: it's neither found in cache: nor site: nor ahrefs ... and it has been there since july.. I am really thinking about blasting some 20$ linkblast on it, to lift it up at least a bit.. I mean, dudes. really. there are a ton of good sellers here that give you top notch niches, postings and expired domains. so if you want to rank shit longterm, go for it. dont be cheap. years are long gone of ranking money keywords with craplinks.
