    What I miss?
    From january I started to rank for a 4/100 effortless difficulty score keyword, dropped 5 PBN over the months (around 1/months), it's EMD so 4 Naked 1 generic as anchor. PBN are not bad, 20-25 DA and are all indexed fine.
    My main content is 4500 words, keyword density is 0,8%. I do have 5 inner pages filled with 700-800 words of content.

    Yet I'm still on mid page 3. What should I do?

    What kind of competitors do you have on the first page?
    4/100 on which keyword tool?

    Was it a fresh domain? Maybe just give it a bit more time, I would bet at least 2-3 of your PBN links weren't able yet to utilize there full potential.

    Are you counting your EMD in your keyword density? All other occurances of the keyword, or just your in article occurances?
    How do you link to your other content?
    Are these PrivateBN, or PublicBN?

    No I'm not including the EMD
    I link with a 700-1000 words niche related article... I don't have made other posts on PBN other than this though
    Private

    This might sound like a real newbie question but what do you mean by rank? Do you mean you're having trouble getting google to show your website when someone searches your keyword at all or do you mean on the first page of google, or something else? I'm asking because my site just got indexed by google and while I don't have any keywords in the 1-3 spots of google I do have some on the first page no backlinks yet.

    You EMD inner pages, how do you link to those?
    How did you get these PBN domains? So much more than DA needs to be factored in.

    i feel u OP. They could devalue sites which have unnatural backlink profile and on easy kws instead of #1 they are #10. I have more link juice than i had before but i lost my serps on v. easy kws i was #1.. probably need more branded urls (in my case). Need to check it out.

    Also backlinks are slow. If you were to get a decrease in serp from undiversified anchors it would be probably be very quick after indexation of them, but if you want actual link juice they probably have to be much longer in the index.

    before it was something like you get some link juice immedietely after index and then regullary after a month up to 6 months, but it probably changed. i do not really see any instant (or even after 2 weeks since backlinks were indexed) positive change in SERPS, other than stuff related with anchors. These feels like its the next day, but link juice comes much slower(?)
