    A month ago I made some backlinks from Angela's method. I was using some of here links from her package, and some links I could find with the method she is using. So profile backlinks, mixed with direct PR 3-5 Backlinks.

    I had 2 sub-pages ranking very well - on google.de I was on TOP 3, and on google.com somewhere in TOP 10.

    From time to time I also linked to other sub-pages, and varied the anchor, while backlinking.


    But now I see a big drop in traffic, and guess what, the 2 sub-pages are not ranking anymore that good. I now can only see my homepage on these 2 search-terms ranking on places 5-11, the sub-pages are far behind.

    Did anyone had a similar occurrence with these kind of Backlinks?

    The site is a 2 years old Blogspot-Blog (PR 3), having over 1.500 unqiue visitors a day. The 2 search-terms where the ones with the most traffic.

    Should I wait, and see if s.th. is going to change? Should I continue building different kind of backlinks? Could it be s.th. with the new PR-Update, that is coming the next few days/weeks?

    It depends on how much link building you were doing before. If you hadn't done any in a while and then added any backlinks you could notice a temporary drop in rankings.

    I can't imagine that Angela's baclinks are that great. The reason for this is simply that all of the websites will suddenly have about 50,000 new outgoing links - often to a lot of spammy places.

    It would be a much better use of your time if you took some of the old lists she has and worked out what platforms she was targetting e.g. kickapps and then went and found other kickapps sites she hasn't shared.

    That's good advice form squelsh... keep building, but don't only use Angelas.. the secret (or one of them) is a wide ranging array of links that continually grow. Angelas list is great, I'm a subscriber, but not only to her service.

    otobse,

    Search the forums here (use the search feature). There's previous backlink packets buried in the members download area.

    I don't really think that the backlinks help much as there's thousand of members using the same packets. Angela has sold it too low of a price and it's getting abused.

    I'd stay away from them personally, I have achieved good rankings without using them

    Just wanted to say that I'm ranking again on these 2 search-terms. But nothing really changed, the first one dropped 2 places, the other one is 1st.

    That's Google.DE, and nothing changed in Google.COM.

    I started building relevant Backlinks a week ago again; forums, blogs, etc.

    ..and I'm waiting for a 500 sticked Links, Xrumer Blast.

    Maybe it is just the google dance.
    I had great success with Angela's links...in the beginning..before the major abuse, and I too had my sites first drop in ranking before any improvement could be seen.

    that is usual.As new backlinks get found,the rankings go down but after some days you will be brought back.so really nothing to worry about.you will be back for sure.

    Yes. It is Google Dance.

    I've personally done thousands of profile links and this is not uncommon. Try bookmarking your backlinks, once they're indexed you'll notice that your sites will first drop in ranking before seeing any improvement like what green-tea has said.
