    So you have a site with 20+ posts, you obviously want to rank them all but you can't just make a few links targetting their main keyword without doing some links before to diversify the backlink profile, how do you deal with diversity when you do manual link build?

    First off, sorry you had to wait more than an hour for someone to respond to you...

    Unless you are churning lots of content and posting lots of posts at once, it's not too hard to implement similar linking strategies for every post on your website. Depending on the competition of the keywords on your individual posts, sometimes only a couple good links is all you need to make to get the article ranking.

    Well problem is finding those sources where I can post my new articles to while also being easy to index the links (or they're useless) and don't take too long to create these links or I'd be spending almost a whole day doing these links if I start writing a lot of articles.

    Well then, it sounds like you need to come up with a good effective backlink strategy for new articles. One that won't take a whole day to implement.

    TBH I'm trying to rank a 1k MS keyword and It's just impossible.. Currently at #7, the top 5 results are forum threads with only a few posts and mention the keyword at most 1-2 times in the thread and 1-3 backlinks max from other random forum posts yet my post is #7 with over 50 backlinks, articles, web2.0, blog posts, video submissions, blog comments.

    I just can't seem to get things to rank no matter what I do. People always told me to be patient and do things manually, all my links have unique descriptions unique articles, even got 2 guest posts for this keyword and its just impossible to rank, it's close to 3-4 months old now

    How many PBN sites did you set up for this and what are their metrics?

    None since I don't have enough money to invest 300+ in PBNs :l And honestly I don't think a 1k MS Keyword where top results are forum threads with hardly more than 1-3 backlinks should need PBNs to rank especially when I've already made so many manual links.

    I just don't know what I'm lacking honestly, if it's this hard to rank a single post for 1k MS I wonder how I'll rank the other 20-30 posts.

    It needs something and the quickest and easiest thing to do is to build a PBN. It should not take more than a couple of sites and that is not going to cost you 3 bills.

    I would be looking at a couple of PBN sites, some authority links like a press release or posts on some high DA sites (many are out there that you can post for free) and would use LSI KWs in those posts. I would care less if they were do or no follow but if a site with only forum posts is out ranking you, I am guessing that the forum has authority and you need to battle back with something along those lines.

    How many PBNs you recommend me to start with?

    Will start reading some stuff regarding PBNs and I'll search for some domain names in the next few hours.

    One.

    Set it up, give it a little social love and wait a week or two to see what it does for your ranking.

    During that time, add in some authority links from some free sites out there that you can write for (there are a bunch of them that allow that) and give your site some authority. I'm 99.9% sure that you have an authority deficient site based on what you are saying is outranking you.

    Alright, currently looking for a domain after reading some tutorials, just one more thing, how many random posts do you publish on your PBN's and how big are the articles when you want to drop a link?

    I recreate the site as it is in archive.org and make some very minor adjustmetns to get my link on the home page. I then make sure it is indexed and once in a while add a page or so to it but nothing out of the ordinary.

    Well, it's been a week now and not even a single keyword has moved =/ Sent a link to both of my sites from the PBN and neither moved, site 1 has same rankings and site 2 still hasn't pop up in top 100 =/ I even improved google insight speed for both sites and no movement either.

    Site 1 is like 4 months old, been trying to be patient with this site since I expected it to take time but I know these keywords are easy to rank so it's killing my motivation that it's not even ranking a single easy keyword after 4 months
