    Several sites in my niche have 0 backlinks and are ranking better than my site.
    maybe is because I have few fake anchor comment links, who knows, I used to be number one, now I am in 70 position.

    how to fix this, I cant use scrapebox anymore because of that

    It sucks, but crappy link blasts are working less than they used to. You can blast tier2 and 3 but not your main site, that's just asking to get hammered

    I've heard that web 2.0 blog sites like blogspot and wordpress is the way to go. I haven't enough time to test this theory but I can tell you that live journal does bring about 25 visitors a month. You could say that's not a lot but considering how comp my niche is, trust me I think is the way to go. Xrumer and scrapebox BIG no to your site, still trying to recover. After i decided to blast scrapebox to one of my sites. use them only for tier 3.

    Forum and comment links don't suck. But spamming links to irrelevant blogs/forums with xrumer is not really the way to go. Done right these link building strategies still have value. Guest blogging is a highly effective strategy if done right. If you see no value in guest blogging/posting you aren't doing it properly.

    If blogs with zero backlinks are outranking your site, it is most likely a combination of poor content and on page SEO which is seeing other sites rank above you.
