    I'm asking for some help.

    I've done very well in the past but was hit in early December by unnatural link penalties with my primary money site. As in the past, I moved the site to a new domain/host and did a 301 redirect to the new host. I used various services from the marketplace here - concentrating on high PR backlinks.

    For over a month, I saw no movement on the new site. Nada. So, I had each article re-written and created a NEW site on an aged domain and switched many of the backlinks to the new site. It's been about a month and still no movement. It's not on Google at all.

    In addition to the other sites, I've also created my own private blog network which is backlinking my money site. Each article is hand re-written or modified articlebuilder. Each article has backlinks to authority sites, graphics and video. Each article also gets social bookmarks and social signals.

    But, I'm still seeing nothing.

    I'm at a loss and I'm running out of funding - the services I'm using aren't cheap and it's biting into my nestegg.

    At this point, I'd welcome any advice.

    Hey man,

    What you're experiencing is perfectly normal. And honestly, if I was you I'd STOP using multiple services on the same site. I've been using the same guy for 2 years on all my sites. These days sites don't rank as fast as they use to. Even with high pr links. Like just a few months ago he was getting my keywords #1 in 6 weeks. But recently its been taking a bit longer. And the first month I don't see any action at all.

    Around month 2 is when I see the action happening now. Then by month 3 he usually has my keywords #1.

    However, he can not rank super competitive keywords. And if he can't rank your keyword he will reject your campaign. There are actually like a dozen reasons why he will reject a campaign. I don't typically share my sources with anyone, but if you'd like to know who he is pm me.

    I've spent over $10k in testing just to find him. And this isn't an open offer for anyone who sees this thread. Its only for the OP. So anyone else who pms me your pm will be ignored.

    -SB

    I would expect to see some movement within a month, but it depends on how competitive the niche is, how good your on-page seo is, and a whole load of other factors. I wouldn't necessarily scrap a project after just such a short time though.

    BTW If you get a site slapped, it's best to just move the content to a new domain and not 301 redirect it as well.

    I'd imagine that you probably wont, but if you want me to take a quick look at the site for anything obvious that could be holding it back, then feel free to PM me.

    So are you saying it's just taking longer to rank now? Perhaps you're right and I have unrealistic expectations based on my previous experiences.

    As far as onsite/onpage SEO, I've tweaked and tweaked it on the original page - and it was ranking VERY well. The new site is very optimized as well. Each article optimized - no keyword over-saturation, etc.
