    Im a music producer and I have been trying to rank my sites for certain keywords about 10 of them for the last year with no results...ordered SEO packages from BH and WF and still nothing managed to move my site....

    The last week my keywords have finally moved got 4 in the top 100 and a few others climbing I have been checking to see why the sudden movement and I cant find anything in my link profile on AHREF or Majestic

    The only thing I have done the last few weeks is

    -high pr blog comment from GSA to money site
    -I also created 4 more new sites with some of the keywords in the domain names of the new sites (new sites have no content or backlinks yet)
    -Each new site has a footer link that links back to main site

    I would appreciate any tips on the sudden movement going on so I can know what works and what doesnt at first I thought it was a Google dance but usually when that happens I lose my ranking in 1 day or even a few hours so I'm stuck right now I don't want to mess up what is happening so I havent messed with any of the sites in the last few days :(

    Could be the blog commenting, or it could be you were lucky enough to get an expired domain with backlinks still pointing to it. Plus your content and the social signals contribute to your rank.

    Don't be scared. Definitely it's the blog commenting.. Most of the blog commenting you have posted is definitely placed on the pages that are already index in Google. That's why people get more ranking this days with private blog network. Since getting links index in Google is hard this days due to heavy spamming of some random site many of us used. If you are able to get links on the site that Google hasn't considered spamming. You will be fine. Just as blog commenting.. Any question post here please.. Hope this help!

    Yeah I have a feeling it's the blog commenting they have been getting indexed pretty quickly compared to other links I tried in the past. I am going to build 2.0's for my new sites and send a round of blog comment to my main sites inner pages for now to see what that does. Also I will add images with alt text to see if that helps some more.
