So I've learned my lesson. My EMD domain has dominated my niche keyword for the last 2 years staying at #1 with no SEO work done. Then 4 months ago my site dropped to #10 and I was devastated: I spent hundreds of dollars on SEO, testing out services including a $300 package (Spam Gone Wild) many of which did not give me any results at all. After that, I had started to use AMR and submitted articles, and testing out other methods of my own. January: bought gigs from Fiverr: This dropped my rank from #2 to #5: February 1-14th: signed up for a senuke 2 week trial and started blasting the Full Monty. Mid-February: Collected all of my Fiverr linkwheel links, bought a $35 VPS and started running xrumer 24/7 blasting my linkwheel links. End result: I finally hit #2 again, and it will just be some more time before I hit #1! Conclusion: Don't stop building links after you hit #1. Also, IMO it's not worth spending $xxx on services for backlinks. Remember spending $300 a month on SEO = 10 months running a $30 VPS 24/7!!
