    First off i need to thank everybody on the forum, if it wasn't for you guys i don't think i would have had this success. I started making 30-40$ a day doing nothing! it took some time but it was well worth it! 17 and making more money then so many people i know.

    The problem is last month i was getting 250-300 hits a day on my website resulting in $100-$150 dollars in sales , as my hits a day dropped so did my sales, what can i do to get back on my sales
    (happened this week)
    i was ranked number 2 on two of my search terms and 6 on another,
    now I'm ranked 5 on two of them and 9 on my other, what can i do to go back up in ranks?
    I hadn't done much SEO before, but willing to buy services or programs if needed.
    Twitter pages are ranked above me!-_-
    what steps should i take to take my place back in the ranks, maybe even get to number 1 position on google?
    the competition is weak according to adwords, any tips?

    "the competition is weak according to adwords" - what do you mean by that? I hope your not talking about the keyword tool, if you are...uber fail.

    Typically people lose rank because they get in 'comfort' mode and stop doing whatever got them there in the first place.

    Analyze the sites listed above you (the links they have) then determine what you need to do. Obviously you need to add a variety of links to get back to the top. After the Panda update, certain links don't count nearly as much as they used to.

    After analyzing, pick a few services here on bhw or fiverr if you are inclined. There are plenty of great services to choose from. Add everything from Homepage links to profile links to edu/gov, to comments to articles.

    Try all of those and get back to us with results.

    Best of luck to you.

    Hi,

    Tip for you - adwords competition show advertisers competitions. If this is low, then there aren't many people betting on these keywords.

    When you want to make money you would want high competiton keywords according to adwords and low competiton according to website competition analyser (traffic travis or something like that)

    Cheers

    Thanks everyone for the responses really appreciate them!
    and Realign02 i feel like that might've been the actual problem that i got into a comfort mode!

    how can i analyze the sites above me? and yeah i believe i need some services just to get a upper hand and some more manual work.

    i got a .edu email now do i just comment random blogs with it listing my website and key words or comment my own page, idk how to use it effectively

    thanks so much!
