    Hello BHW friends,

    One month ago I bought a backlink and my site moved in the serps, but since 1 week ago my site is dropping and dropping.

    For example, of #30 serps to #70 in Google rank. This is normal or maybe i bought a bad backlink?

    Thank you

    Just 1 backlink ain't enough for your site to rank, you have to be consant and keep building links (manually/automated/bought) every month, depends in the competition for that keyword

    You need as many links as it takes to get #1.

    It depends on niche. In some niches it will be enough to get 1 good backlink, but in others you need more than 1K links.

    Try to get some social signals and few links from trusted sites in your niche. It should be enough to make first conclusion.

    How many backlinks you need depends on what you’re trying to achieve. The more you want to achieve (in terms of keyword targets, rankings and visitor numbers), the more backlinks you’ll need.

    I don't think it's possible to guess how many backlinks do you need now. But you can get an idea from your competitor.

    It happens. Sometimes I drop a few pages and I don't know why. Didn't build backlinks so it was a bit strange to see a sudden drop of 10-20 positions.

    Try with the recent backlinks that you purchase,

    #1 : Check all the backlinks that are cached
    #2 : And check all the contents are unique, if so try to get some social likes.

    According to my opinion go with high authority links according to your niche & try to build the quality links constantly.

    Building the quality backlinks from the good authority sites which are based on your site niche will help you a lot. Focus on quality links rather than the quantity will make you more changes.

    Thank you everyone guys, It seems to me that I'll need around 12 links to my first journey.

    We'll see the results of that backlinks!

    There is no exact quantity, you should track your backlinks and ranking change to define it.

    There's a new update happening. Google rolled back an update days ago, and they're changing things constantly. Give it some time before you add or remove links.

    You should continue adding links, cause your competition could be adding more!

    You should be constantly adding links. It's not just about getting to the number 1 spot. Is also about staying there.
