    So originally my site was like 80 in February, I did some complex backlinking (web 2.0s to money site, social bookmarks, articles, forum profiles to the web 2.0s and blast all those with 50K scrapebox comment blast).

    I went from 80 to 60 to 50 then since Feb. 14th:

    49, 47, 45, 46, 51, 51, 51, 52, 53, 56, 59

    My best was Feb. 16th and since then the site has been falling back to 60.

    I'm still linking building. I usually do the above once per week. The site is almost one year old... I'm targeting different keywords so maybe that will help.

    Thoughts, Google dance or bad SEO implementation?

    probably a dance from your information above. Just keep on link building in a natural way.

    If you want to win, disregard natural way. If your site isn't brand new and is somewhat established - just keep building links as fast as you can.

    I would highly suggest getting other links from high quality non-public sources. This includes:

    • Contact blog owners in your niche and ask if they accept paid blog posts or they would be willing to publish an article you wrote. Stop using BMR/ALN.
    • Get involved in forums in your niche and drop your link when its appropriate.
    • Build high quality sub-niche keyword specific sites. If you're in the dog training niche, build a site only about indoor obience, potty training, etc. If you don't have a lot of money, use blogger/wordpress etc
    • Create quality content that you can distribute. This is huge. Im just as lazy as the next guy, but if you truly want to succeed you need to start doing what other people don't. This means creating videos, writing real content with unique pictures. Pain in the ass, yes. Worth it? Absolutely.

    All of these links can be tiered with other links. Web 2.0 / profiles / blog comments etc etc.

    Good luck.

    Based on my experience with our 8 sites. Link Building is not just the factor to get into the competition. We've purchased private blog networks links, forum profile links, but all were not enough to stay on top. For the meantime, we decided to stop in purchasing links from the private blog networks to eliminate the fishy SEO way. Although its effective, but will not last long. :) White hat is still the best strategy.

    Thanks man! I got some plans for just this. Unfortunately I'm slowly getting everything put together. The chess pieces are taking a ling time to go. The good thing is that my niche can be broken up where a lot of smaller sub-niches exist. So small bloggers that own their own domain can do stuff.

    I have a blog together but want to get it more presence on the main page. I really intend it to be a 'Help' section for the main site giving suggestions and ideas. Maybe having people 'write in' or make videos on how to improve the usage from the main site. Initially I will hire some folks but after that - should be good. I plan to use some hottie girls which I think will attract the guys ;)

    Panda 3.3 was released this month and confirmed yesterday. There's something related to how link value is evaluated. Maybe it's related. Who knows.
