    Is anybody else having a problem with movement this last few weeks? My website is basically stuck for most of my keywords on the second page. I know people say this all day long but its starting to really bother me. I have been building very high quality web 2.0 buffers like crazy, a decent quality PBN and social signals.

    My competition is pretty low but it is the health niche. Could that be the problem.

    What about your money site content - How many words in total, is it unqiue and written by native writer?

    Is it a brand new website ? Best would be if you post your site so I can have a short look and check :)

    Regards,

    Finn

    My site is pretty old. About a year and a month old. All my content is written by me and I like to say I write pretty decent content. I usually have around 1200 words per blog post. My on site is good from my research. Only thing I have been thinking about doing more of is interlinking in my website. I do not do much of it at all.

    I would rather not post my site on here just to be safe. Hope you understand.

    I haven't been getting much movement lately on the 300 keywords I track, +1, -1 seems to be the theme the last couple of weeks.

    The backlinks that you're submitting are indexed?

    I Can't believe I have not read this thread before IBrazzilan. Interesting, so I should write content related to my articles and link to them?

    I want to continue reading this entire thing hopefully tomorrow.

    Thanks again!

    I've got so many awesome threads like that saved that it took me a few minutes to find it.

    But yeah, that's basically the idea, to have related content(articles,posts) linking to that main article to push relevancy.

    Content is King and if your website has good content with high quality then I must say its easy to rank your website.
    So make your website content seo friendly.

    Have you personally tried this method before? I am going to try it starting today to see if it works.

    Concentrate on OBLs
    Make sure you have optimized images/videos because it affects the page loading speed.
    Check your backlinks whether you get bad backlinks it also affects your serp.
    Make sure your XML sitemap had no distractions.

    Same here, i am stuck at the bottom of 1st page for like 4 months. Build 6 extra PBN websites, some very high quality authority backlinks, social signals. One similar website i build and ranked 2 years ago and is still ranking #1, took like 3 times less work, resources and time than this one. Competition is similar... From my experience it should in 1st position twice already.. But it just doesnt want to move :(

    Then it needs more relative content linking to it, if no matter how much link juice you send to it and it doesn't budge, it just needs more related content linked around it on your site.

    Since I started the unstuck method I have been moving up quite a bit in the serps. If I were you I would give it a try. I have also just continued to keep building links.

    Actually it was serpbook, it's been good in the past but the sites gone down a few times in the last week and the rankings aren't moving compared to other trackers. I started using other trackers and noticed I have had some good movements. But that was an awesome unstuck method I got to read, seems like common sense but I don't really use that enough, so glad to see this post.
