As some here who have been reading my posts might know I have been struggling with a competitive keyword for many months, I recently purchased AMR and have been scraping and building a good list of article sites to post to, I purchased a batch of five articles and span them by hand and did a huge blast over the past few days to buffer sites and a few blasts to the money site (domain is old enough) ?I now have 1000s of live articles, on top of that my Senuke links have been coming through and I have been using the drippable trial for a few hundred profile links etc, I also spend a lot of time indexing the links, creating RSS feeds, pinging them across multiple services. The result? I have lost 13 places and have slipped back to page 3, my link numbers increase my SERPS drop. I put this down to link quality? I am starting to learn the hard way that quality over quantity is the key in competitive niches, so my question back to you guys is how do you go about finding quality links? I was thinking about scraping high PR forums and doing posts and profiles by hand but that just seems like more spam to me, there must be a better way?
