All of this Google Updating is Driving Me Crazy! How Can I ever get ranked?

    Alright guys... I'm getting real annoyed with all of this Google updating stuff. I just got back into SEO the last few months and have started to get some of my pages on my blog ranked. One keyword i was at #1-2 for a long time, then G updated a year ago and it dropped me to #3-4 which reduced my traffic in half.

    Now the other day with the recent update that keyword is now on page 3! WTF?! Now my traffic is in half again!

    I'm doing all of the tricks I've learned online about putting keywords in title, description, 3-5% density, bold, underline, link, alt tags, etc. then trying to find backlinks for these pages, buying fiverr gigs, etc. To do all this work and get pushed down by Google is driving me nuts!

    I feel like all the hard work I am doing is for nothing cause they keep changing things. All the Google stuff I read seems to say "make a normal site, dont stuff it, focus on quality content, blah blah, put SEO aside."

    If that is the case and G wants just regular sites that are not optimized toward keywords then how will good pages ever be created and found. DO you know what I mean? If none are ever focused on key terms. Seems like they don;t want us to focus on a keyword and just by luck will your site ever rank, cause if you do focus on SEO then they will drop you in the index.

    What gives! I need some advice everyone. This makes me want to give up on SEO!

    For god's sake stop buying fiverr gigs. They are a public source of backlinks and have mostly been spammed to death. Develop your own ways of getting links.

    i think the future
    make a website for users
    advertise it naturally at related forums
    otherwise it will be probably waste of time

    on my site i write all of the articles and trying to be a real authority site for content. i want it to be a full time business one day. expert in my field. i think it sucks that google is penalizing me for that.

    i've only bought social bookmarking, one linkwheel web 2.0 and a link pyramid gigs from fiverr. staying away from all except social bookmarking from now on.

    Exactly what G want you to do. Pray on ranking high instead of giving hard work. They said about building a site for users? How can users find us when we are on the 500th position of SERP.
