    I did a few blast with AMR, and i noticed that my serp went down, due to the fact that my articles are now ranked even higher than my site!

    What should i do :(?
    Please advise. Thanks!

    I think my keyword might be relatively easy.
    Since not only they rank higher than my site, but also my other competitions.
    hum... whats going on. it seems like a big mess.
    I wonder if thats a good thing?

    Yes essentially is a good thing. G sees your articles are more relevant that your site. Build relevant links to your site and write another unique article or two and drop them on your site.
    The main thing is the links, additional articles will 'cement' your position.
    If the competition is not that hard look at a linking partners free service and choose partners from your particular niche. You should be able to crack in it a fortnight or so.

    If you can edit those articles go in and shorten it and ad a "Read More" hop link to your post on your site.

    Other than that see above....

    This is a very good thing.

    1) Your keyword must be super easy.
    2) You now have premium links from pages that Google sees an authority in your niche (thus they rank so well).

    Build more links but maybe not so many article links and don't blast these articles with links like you would a buffer site.

    Try adding more unique content to your site, Google loves unique content that attracts reader's interested so your site will rank higher as a result.

    Content is key :D

    Yeah the early stages with my Scrape Box projects indicate that back links can maybe only help so much and new content is needed to take the rankings to the next level.

    From my experience recently whenever I add new content to my sites rankings rise much quicker than when I build links.

    It's all about a healthy balance of fresh content as well as different types of links (profiles,blog comments,bookmarks,homepage links) whatever looks most natural to Google will be best.

    Also another thing to watch is how often your competitors update their sites, in highly competitive niches this is generally more often than others, but this may not always be the case.

    Just my experience anyway

    Yeah I think sites which have blogs that are updated regularly fair well.

    Especially if those blog updates also get people coming in from the likes of Twitter and Facebook.

    Google certainly seems to be falling in love with social networking and understandable really.

    In theory this is a good thing esepcially if you have aff. link in your articles.
    Why is it a good thing?Well lets say your KW was hamburger.Now when someone searches hamburger they will(in theory)see your page ranked multiple times thus getting you more targeted traffic.
