    This thread is a poll & discussion in continuation to this thread- http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...aiting-period-after-may-14-payday-update.html , many people are having issue to get top rankings and according to them, the ranking get stuck to page 3-10 no matter how many links you build.

    Please only vote if the keyword you were targeting has atleast 10k monthly searches. This will help us get an idea on how many people are able to get page 1 rankings after the 15 may update.

    Lets see, its pretty close right now.

    To all those who voted yes- Was your site indexed with content before 15 may? (it plays a huge factor)

    To all those who voted no - Did you ever manage to rank top 10(in past 1-2 years) with the method you were using on these sites?

    Im even having trouble with pretty easy terms for some reason everything feels so sensitive right now if you do any link building, even check like mozcast so random ever since.

    I am having trouble ranking some easy terms as well,stuck at like 10-15th page for 7 days!
    But my main search term is like 4k searches (US) Per month .
    Other long tails with less than 1k monthly US searches are at 13-14th page

    I wonder how many people will click yes who have never even ranked a site in their life. I can't see this poll being accurate or useful to be honest.

    Well, you can check my stats if you like. One of my sites (my SEO site) is normally in my sig. That get's around 160,000 UVs a month and is one of the newest sites I run.
    Not saying I haven't had some failures... I certainly have (some massive failures in the past) - just adapted and tried again :)

    I am in the middle of setting up 10 churn and burns, most of the normally do well, some don't. My churn and burns are always based on the same set of keywords, and I use the same methods to rank them every time I make new ones. They will all be ready within two weeks, I will come back and let you know if they all flop.

    Seems like most of members rely on churn and burn and simple update kicking them from game:p

    isnt that site a bit older though?

    I think it is more recently that people are experiencing this "issue", if we want to call it that. Even for their own brand name.

    Actually I am sure it was yesterday / day before when someone outed someone's new churn and burn in a competitive niche. So what would Google gain by having a waiting period? Big deal use old domains, buy domains in advance.

    Aged domains are also having the same issue, using aged domains is not the solution to this.

    Even those aren't working as well. Tony_d has tested them quite a bit, it's 50/50, not immediate rankings like it used to. The SandBox is real these days, the guys at NoHatSEO.com tested and documented it before the PayDay rollout. The higher # of exact monthly searches the keyword gets, the longer the delay seems to be.

    Aged domain,keyword has around 25K monthly searches (very low competition),I put content on site (700-800words) yesterday,indexed it and it jumped instant to page 6 without any links/social signals.
