Hey guys, just to share some of what I experienced recently and also hope for some opinion from some of you guys who have similar experience or something to share. I had a partial matched domain (combination of 2 exact match keywords I wanna rank). I'm using the below as an example with some stats (not giving away my domain of course). Domain: beautifultopceilingfans.c0m Trying to rank for: 1. beautiful ceiling fans (global 3600, US local 1600) 2. top ceiling fans (global 1900, US local 1300) Both keywords after checking had rather low competition (check from google exact ("") and intitle). Site details: 1. Main page 700 words 2. Additional 10 posts of between 350 to 400 words each, backlinked to my main domain with 5 anchors pointing to each keyword I was trying to rank. As I registered this domain on 11 Apr while I was concentrating on another site, I merely did very minimum backlinkling and only used 4 fiverr gigs and another service from TP (200 web 2.0 to main site). Each fiverr gig gave me mix of tiered web 2.0, social bookmark and microblogging. They were spread out like over the course of 1 month each. After 2 months, I was ranked for BOTH keywords on page 1, positions 4 and 6 respectively. With the success, I thought that my site had "aged" and started a series of more backlinking and it did bring me to positions 2 and 4 subsequently. And with the success, I started to target inner pages and tried the same technique for them. It was then I noticed that mu rankings started to slide slowly downwards and I did a press release service recently. On the day PR was done, my rankings shot up (globally) and I had a very big jump in visitors and subsequently it went on a downhill (only US was ranked in page 1) and now both keywords are in page 2. I do not think that this can be a dance because from my previous experience, google dance brings my main keywords to pages 10 and beyond and the ranking URL is usually a inner page. Now it is the domain itself that has gone down. Any brothers or sisters here able to advise if there's anyway to bring the site back up again and what are good ways to maintain rankings (backlinking velocity) and also rank inner pages? In my opinion, I might have hastened the process way too quickly (I'm doing link building every 3 to 5 days or a week). But perhaps there are underlying factors or maybe it's the recent Google change? I dunch know. Hope to hear some advice. Hope I gave a clear picture of my predicament. Thanks BHW brothers.
