    Hi,

    I try to get on the first Page of Google for my website with a long tail keyword (3). My site and keywords are the same. My site is a .info created six months ago. 500 searches per month (Exact match type) on G and the competition is low. I posted 4 articles on EzinesArticles (backlink in the bio) and 2 for Goarticles. My site was on page 3. Three weeks ago, I reposted on EzinesArticles 4 articles and 1 other on Goarticles. But my site is on page 3 of Google again!

    I do not ping my articles or my site (no RSS or nothing). All my articles are indexed on Google. I changed the content (unique) and photos on my site 3 weeks ago. I also changed my meta (description and keywords). Every change I make has not been indexed on Google. The old description still appears in the results of Google searches. Normally the changes are made 1 or max 2 weeks when I put articles on EzinesArticles.


    It seems that backlink no longer affect the SERP for my website. What's happening?

    Thanks

    Maybe the websites ranked ahead of you have more backlinks.. But it looks like you are doing all the right things. Try taking those articles you are submitting, re-spin them, and submit them to 2 or 3 more article submission directories.

    Submit your articles 2 times a week to 5 different directories and that should be enough to get you ranked well within a couple weeks. That's 10 solid backlinks per week, and high profile content pointing to your site.

    Also, just be patient, sometimes google is quick at indexing, but might take a bit longer to "update" something that has already been indexed. I think in couple more weeks or so your website should start to climb up the ranks.

    Isnt it way too early to give up and jump to that conclusion?

    It´s not likely that backlinking does not affects your serps anymore.

    It´s either your backlinking campaign lost its value due to footprint tracking (A) OR your competition is a little ahead (B) comparing to the boost you gave on this last one. Sounds stupid but the higher you climb, the tougher it gets. Don´t expect search engines to be robots and you can program the results you´ll obtain. I mean, to a certain extent you can, but expect margins to be huge, so don´t try to fine tune it too much. I´d even add assymetry is the key here. I know this sounds even stupider, but that´s just how it is, or rather how I like to see things. I like to think of the web as a lively place rather than crude algorithms, afterall, they were conceived/coded to mimic human behaviour of liking/disliking/valuing or not something and triggering pattern abusing flags.

    Sorry I got off the tracks. Lemme catchup:

    In case of item A, don´t expect search engines to index VALUE AND CREDIT you all the links you created in a very similar fashion in the last campaign the same way! Link diversity. I could go on and on about that. ;) However you say all your links are indexed, even the last ones. Which brings us to:

    In case of item B, I would keep on doing backlinks, but of course adding and tweaking it by combining with item A.

    Do not stop building links doesnt mean do a lot of links pointing to your site, that´s a KEY factor.

    It means do more, do better, do smarter, more diverse, interlinked in crazy ass random patterns, in tiered structures that only you could think of/execute it this way. Help the search engine by giving it the change to navigate through the whole structure multiple times and starting from different locations(think bookmarks, learn the rss tricks, then bookmark the rss, then rss the bookmark and then do it again babe =D and then, and only then, rss ping everything.) You´ll drive them crazy and because you´re all over it, yet you´re protected. There´s plenty of crawl budget so dont worry about what that fag cutts say. Uncle Google´s a very, very rich man. That´s the beauty of it, and mastery definitely pays off in this area. Don´t get me wrong It´s not like I´m Seo jesus christ or anything, I always get somewhat carried away when talking about stuff I know a bit or two lol.

    Also, I noticed this might be one of your first sites so it should be new, and it´s never enough to remember to build your links in tiers, to funnel link juice while having protection(think forum profiles, comments and then blogs and then articles who link randomly to each other and then to the money site) To get both a healthy link juice vein for your site to suck on(while being closed on the backend, to hold on to the juice) and get you that Sandbox-out free pass to your site straight away. To sum it up, you can have 50 links to your site that have the power of 10.000.

    And may god guide you into performing all those tasks by pointing you to the direction of the right automation tools.

    You also need to diversify your backlinks, not just from article directories... bookmarks, blog comments, forum profiles, web 2.0 properties etc...

    thanks all,

    Can I expect search engines to index VALUE AND CREDIT me if the content from the articles and website (and tag) are similar ?

    Article spinning says yes. But that needs mastering as well.

    ...sorry, not the content but the subject/categories. The content is different.

    Can I expect search engines to index value and credit me if the subject/categories from the articles and website (and tag) are similar ?

    I would put up some better content and get some high pr. back links. Don't spend a lot of money.
