    Hi everyone, for my money site, when I added my 1st powerful PBN, it took around 1 month+ and I am on the 2nd page for my main kw, with exact match kw anchor text (home page).

    So last week, I added another PBN, with exact match kw + city anchor text (home page). But my ranking didn't increase and instead decrease. Dropped around 10 pos and now I am in page 3.

    Can anyone advise me? Should I give if more time and add more PBN link?

    Thanks!

    How long has it been since you added the link?

    Someone recently told me google has a patent that basically says google intentionally drops your rankings if you start getting high authority links. If you remove the links or stop building more links google knows something is up. If you keep building links then google will show your true rankings after some time.

    No idea how true this is but I think its worth mentioning.

    From experience, it's quite normal. I've seen my keyword drop (about 10+ position) and going up stronger after weeks. But make sure you diversify your anchor text ratio to make it looks normal. Drip feed the PBN links, and create some filler content to create more relevancy to the page you are aiming to rank for. I think Leith is saying the same thing about the filler content here. Same situation as yours (trying to rank for keyword+city)

    It is probably just the Google dance. Improving rankings is not always a linear process.
