    Is this normal? The components of the linkwheel (web 2.0 pages) are ranking well for my non-competitive search term.

    But my website itself, which used to rank on page 2, is no nowhere to be found for the search term.

    What size linkwheel did you get and who from?
    Did you do anything else or just the linkwheel?

    25 spoke wheel from contentyogi dot com.

    Didn't do anything but the linkwheel...kind of afraid to anything else now.

    that sounds weird, does you site index in other keywords?

    Yes.

    I just noticed that my website does not contain the keywords I bought the link for. :eek:

    I need to change that ASAP.

    Keywords should appear as 1.5% of the content on EACH page of the site, or just 1.5% of the content of the entire site?

    Don't fuckn worry about stupid keyword percentages..thats SEO for n000bs. Just change site/page title to the exact keyword phrase, nothing else...and just <h1> the keyword phrase. Keyword density of the content counts for shit.

    You can pwn the SERPS with this exact code for shits & giggles even though its 100% keyword density...which proves that ppl who quote %'s have never really tested & are just parroting some other n00b

    How long have you been out though? It will more then likely come back fairly quickly. Usually i do 3 days of linkbuilding or so. Then i spend 2 days of nowhere to be seen. Then i wake up one morning on page 1.

    As for keyword density. I usually dont pay much attention to it nowadays. In the time it takes you to word your article around a 5% density you could have got a dozen backlinks.

    This has happened to me quite often too. However, my "money site" is rarely any better or more important than the surrounding sites. If any of them rank, I call it a success, as long as the sites which rank can be converted into sales platforms. Usually, they can. Even wordpress.com and hubpages will take an affiliate link if you use tinyurl and do it right.

    Update: I'm now on page 1, spot 6 for my target keyword.

    I can confirm that the linkwheel WORKED.

    Just had to make sure my keywords were in my title, meta description, and <h1>.

    How long after your site disappeared did it take to come back?

    My linkwheel worked for about a week or two, I went from #80 to #15, then my site dropped out of the top 100.

    Your main site could be caught in the Google dance.

    I kind of doubt it. My impression is they offer a temporary boost, then that boost fades. Perhaps you have to just keep doing it over and over, but I have not tested that. I have heard that google has caught on and the wheels are a lot less effective then they used to be.

    Is it a new domain? If so you probably build links to fast. Anyway if you get cought in the google dance or even if your site get sandboxed, keep building links and in about 3 month you will suddenly appear on the 1st page

    Try not to close the wheel. You can also try to randomize your linking which can be found on some of the more advanced link wheel reports here in BHW. This way it's getting harder for the big G to find out about your wheel.

    As we all know, Google are VERY smart. I'd always randomise linkwheels a bit. I have no doubt that G will already have taken steps to put linkwheels to bed.

    Well if google has taken "steps" it will be included in the new caffeine datacenter update. here the IP for the google servers running the new algorithm of caffeine that will be rolled out after xmas. Run your link wheels thru this and see if there are any changes :)
