Ahoy there! Basically a TL;DR - My site which reacted well initially to only couple of links and pushed my two money pages to 2nd and 3rd page has been stuck there for a while. My final attempt to have it get to 1st page. History: Site is 4 months old, lots of high quality content and clean PBN and web 2.0 links. After the first two links it has refused to do anything. Sandbox: Even for the easiest keywords it refuses to be on the 1st page. Goal: Build authority to site without risking the domain. Solution: Requires authority to move. Plan: 1. Press release > Homepage on 17th. 2. Social signals > Homepage on 18th. 3. 5 Niche relevant PBN links from here > Homepage 20th 4. Social signals to supporting and category pages. > 22nd 5. 30 general PBN links from here targeting category and 1 supporting page > 23rd basically like this > 15 links/6+6 to category pages, remaining 3 to a supporting page. Key things to notice and track. Steps 1 - 4 are brand anchor text to improve authority. Step 5, each link has a unique anchor text and the seller has been asked to drip feed 2 links a day over 15 days. Also links will be randomized so there is no pattern. Hopefully the seller will make sure of it. Why I am starting a journey for this: Basically writing down my plan helps me stick to it. Otherwise I don't remember or focus. Also it is easier for me to come back and read on what has happened since. Thus why. Costs. 1. PR - $50 2. SS - $14 3. NRP - $50 4. SS - $24 (1x3 other cheap seller) 5. GPBN - $75 Total - $213 Approx/ Current rankings Lets see how it goes.
