    Hi All,

    Maybe some experts can tell me what is wrong with my webiste.

    It is ranked on page 2 now for 3 month's between # 11 and # 15
    The website has lots of quality backlinks, little unique content and good onpage seo and a PR2

    What i did last two month's is building quality content related backlinks.

    The site has more backlinks then the website's ranked from #3 to # 5 and has also better content, but it is stuck on page 2.

    Is there someting like a small penalty like google is holding the site on page two and will release it the sooner or later?

    Note:

    The site is not dancing, it is for months now between pos 11 and 15. (our it must be a small and very long dance)

    One of my sites has the same problem, think it's one of two things.

    1. Over optimised onpage/articles
    2. Over optimised anchor text

    Currently working on number 2. Number 1 would be a massive project :(.

    It's more about the quality of the backlinks rather than quantity. Try mixing up your on-page SEO a bit as well?

    Hi,

    I was thinking of your number 2.
    My linkbuilding is the "old fasion" way for this site, i have only one high/competive keyword and i build lots of links (70%) with the same Anchor tekst.

    ( i did change this, and order the Lion mane package by Sarkar, it finished 1 week ago and.......... nothing changed)

    Hi,

    Thanks for the help / advice.

    What i did:

    Folowed advice and mixed up the Anchor text.
    Blog / news / article submision with different keywords.
    Added about 8 high PR backlinks whit different anchors like: keyword click here, online keyword, more info, etc.

    And now what..??

    Damn last week it did hit the top 10 now and then.
    End of last week it was steady in the top ten.
    And today YES it hits the #5 spot.

    And now i will try to get it in the top 3, but there are huge company's like Philips, LG, and wikipedia, i will try and go for it.
