    I don't know what's going on. I've been building backlinks for the last 2 weeks and I haven't found my site in the top 300 yet... it's like 3 months old:confused:

    I've been doing scrapebox blasts everyday, 1000-5000. Majesticseo says I have nearly 6k bls. I thought you were supposed to get ranked atleast before you get sandboxed :s

    I read threads about people getting ranked into the top 100 in under a week.

    If I could rank in the top 100, it'll give me the slightest hope..

    If someone can help me figure out what's wrong or just examine my pathetic site, I'll appreciate it alot.



    Thanks

    Without knowing your niche, it's difficult to say if you should have ranked or not. If it's a very competitive niche, then getting in the top 100 maybe very difficult for someone who has just started doing IM.

    IMHO, SB is not enough to get you ranked. If you are doing SB blasts, make sure to get them indexed by an indexing service like PingFarm or Linkilcious.

    You may also want to start writing some quality articles and press releases and submit them to respective directories.

    Also, do Web 2.0 bookmarking.

    You can find information on all the above on BHW.

    GL and don't give up.

    Maybe your keyword competition is too strong.
    Be patient and as indianknight said, scrapebox blast is indeed not enough to rank well

    Try creating some Web 2.0 Properties linking back to your money site and blast the money site with scrapebox and buy some seo services (You can find many quality services in the BST section)

    Good luck!

    Is blog commenting the only link building you are doing? If so that may well be the problem. You need some variety in your backlinks (and some some quality as well) Blog commenting is a good part of a link building strategy but should not be the only part.

    3 things, one is that you probably are trying to rank for very difficult keywords, second is that you're on site seo may be very bad and third the backlinks you've been creating may have not been indexed yet (and most may never will).

    You should also verify if you didn't get sandboxed or penalized.

    In case you didn't got penalized, you could: improve your onsite seo, try to index your backlinks or try to rank for other keywords...

    2 weeks really isn't that long to sit in Limbo either. You've got that site for a year remember, you can't expect success immediatly.

    Everyone is concentrating on the links aspect of this, what about onsite?
    Do you have unique content? At least 400 words of unique content per page, with several pages?
    Are you building links to /all/ of your pages, or just your main page?

    Ye, directly blasting. But I was expecting to atleast see some ranking before I disspeared into oblivion

    The keyword competition :
    720 exact searches a month (I checked traffic travis and it says 702 daily, Market samurai kept freezing on me so I couldnt check it on there.) I also checked on compete and it says the first spot get 21k UV a month... um, ye, a little confusing.

    I decided to just go for it since I've wasted so much time already. The first site has 11k backlinks to the whole of the domain and 2k bl's to that page, with a pr of 2 for the whole site. It is a review site. 28 pages indexed.
    The rest of the posts are taken by 0-3 and spot 7 8 9 are taken by pr 4's.
    :s

    I wasn't expecting to get into top 10 anytime soon but I just want to get into top 100...

    Edit: Ye, I'm building links to all of the pages. So far I have 4 pages of content. I've added my main keyword to h1, h2, h3 and meta desc and meta keywords/title.

    Two weeks and your already complaining?

    Unless your building insanely high quality backlinks don't expect high quality rankings in a matter of two weeks.

    If your doing traditional groundwork SEO, which it appears your doing, you need to keep building links, and content and most of all WAIT. Patience is required in SEO.

    No no, I'm not complaining, I'm just wondering why I'm not even in the top 300 yet lol. I understand ranking into the top 10 will take some time, but I thought I'd be able to atleast get into the top 300 by now. I'll build some high pr links and add more content.
    thanks :)

    sometimes i like to just add content with no backlinks, good content sometimes finds its way into the top 100 without any links yet. thats a good indicator of difficulty.

    1. OnPage SEO:

    How many words is your article?
    Unique content?
    Good grammar?
    Keyword in title, description, h1,h2,h3 tag?
    Keyword in the text?
    What is your tld?
    Exact match domain?
    Or with suffix/prefix?

    2. OffPage SEO:

    How many links are alive? --> Do a scrapebox alive check.
    How many outbound links? --> the more outbound links, the less value you get
    What pagerank they have? --> some high pr backlinks are needed

    If OnPage SEO is good, then check your backlinks.
    Diversify your links, do web 2.0 and social bookmarks too, get some quality links.
