I wanted to start a thread to discuss ways of getting your money sites to rank highly in google, and to share my experience. Over the past 12 weeks I have engaged in an intensive blackhat link building campaign. My Method: Gradually and steadily, build up backlinks mainly from comment spam Concentrate on high PR ******** links from multiple sources (PR 2,3,4,5,6,7) Use keyword anchor text in all links Link different keywords to different sub-pages Basically, it's the classic blackhat linkbuilding technique. I have 15 main subpages. Most now have 200 backlinks, the top one has over 1000. Central domain has 300 backlinks. In week 11 (last week), I started to rank on the first page for most of my competitive keywords and started to make good money. This lasted for 2 days. Then, down to page 10 for 2 days. Then back to page 1 for 2 days. Then, page 10 again. All pages have been page 10 or below for 3 days now. I am concerned that they will not recover their position, and I don't know what to do. I would like to compare my experience here with what other people have been finding. What might I have been doing wrong? Basically what I'm trying to find out is this - does the classic blackhat linkbuilding method still work?
