Hi guys , i've been reading a lot all this forum in the last months, i learned a lot and i'm still learning. I bought 5 micro niche sites on this site and got everything set up like a month ago. After some time when i learned to use some tools online i discovered that CPC was far under 1$ the seller promised. Anyway i got x senuke trial and blasted all my sites , after some time reading here i learned that wasn't a great idea as it's not that simple. Then i decided to work hard , learned more stuff and focused on one domain only , i added 4 unique articles , opened like 10 web 2.0 blogs with same theme as my key word , i put 4-5 posts on every blog putting some personal information , photo , videos and put 1 article backlinking my money site. After some time i finally jumped on page one but position 8-9. I decided then to buy 2 gigs on fiverr , 600 bookmarks and submitting a spunned article to 7k + article directories , the quality was really shitty but you can't really pretend too much for 5$. Now after some dance i jumped to page 4 and after a day i was back at position 8 and i'm stuck there. So i got Market Samurai and started to learn how to analyze the Key words. I found that the 7 sites i have above me are domain age from 5 to 14 years old , pr's are 0 to 3 (one of those is wikipedia), the strange thing my index count is 0 and also all the backlinks page are 0 too. I never indexed my backlinks as i have read here that is best to leave the natural flow when you have new sites . So the question is am I doing something wrong? What should i do to improve my ranking? Or maybe the competion is so strong for me and i should focus on another key word? I'm sorry for the wall of text but i worked really hard to learn much as i could here but all this SEO world is really a lot of things and i need to learn much more , a good advice would help me a lot . Thanks in advance ps: so far i 've made around 4$ till now with 6 sites but only one is ranking 'good'.
