Dramatic Decrease in Rankings after PBN Posts - Freaking out!!

    Hello,

    u2mijoim.png

    So as you see in the picture, there is a dramatic decrease in the rankings.
    I have ordered about 20 PBN posts and they started delivering by 12th till 22nd, which is where I am seeing an extreme rankings drop!
    I am afraid really, been waiting for some while now but I am not sure what to do next.
    Should I remove the posts? Wait? Is this just a dance? I'm honestly freaking out.

    Any advice will be really appreciated.

    Edit:
    I checked the PBNs, not that shitty to be honest. Plus, I already have my own small PBN (15 sites) and I got links from the guardian, bbc, 2 .gov's and tons of .edu. Besides, everything is dripfed so slowly. It is not even a hard keyword, and the top 10's are TF 5 or something (I'm TF 30 now, and yeah, can not get anything decent).
    Honestly, I do not know what to do..

    If you order cheap pbn post then this will happen!!!.Happens with me to!!,First my keyword ranks in top 20 under 23 days then the ranks decrease suddenly. I ordered 250 pbn post .So Better to use them as tier 2 for safety. Now im using them as tier 2 and everything is going well!

    Hard to tell, tbh. Could be either. I would wait ~1-2 weeks. If no change, your panicking may be justified, lol. Also, I implore you to 'out' the PBN provider to potentially protect others.

    If it's not your own PBN than best is to remove those pbn links, if it's your own PBN's and no other out link there, than build tier linking.

    It could be con-incident or it could be anchor text over optimization. Wait for some time then either remove the posts or make some changes

    I don't know how you expect that people help you when we dont know how you structured web page, what your keywords density, how good pbn links or not, what your anchors... bla bla bla... many factors are important for rankings not just PBN or some other links... maybe it doesnt have anything with PBN links... You must prepare website before do some strong pbn links with main keyword if you wanna pm me details when I have time I will try to help you.

    I am pretty sure the posts fell off the homepages and thus lost most of the linkjuice from it. As you can see the rankings slightly improved if you compare it with your rankings before you ordered them. Try to learn how to build your own PBN's and make sure the posts stick on the homepage for the best linkjuice.

    Looks like shitty PBN work to me. Dancing should have stabilized by now i would have thought. Wait another few weeks & see, you never know.

    Just remove the PBN posts that you have recently bought.

    Could be over optimization on your anchors. I would give it a few more days and see what happens.

    It could be that other users who also have their sites posted on the PBN doing things like blasting backlinks stuffs. Wait a few weeks like they said

    There's not enough information in your stats to prove anything.
    It goes up and down, not just down. you need to wait to see where it settles.

    Yes still alive
    Keywords were either the website name, raw link of totally different anchors

    Maybe your overoptimized.

    Try building pillow links or lowering your on page density and wait a few weeks to see if you come back.

    If you don't come back, ask the seller to remove the backlinks and see what happens.

    theres so many pbn sellers here, you might want to publish some information for others whos service you used, so others can judge for themsleves if its worth the risk, also you might want to do a link audit on your site to see whats happened, best to do one before and after using such services
