    How do / did you overcome it?

    Back in the day we could spam a ton of links without much regard for anchor text percentages, volumes, and rank easily.

    Now one wrong move, or a batch of bad links / wrong anchors could put sites (in particular new sites) in the gutter, at least temporarily, for who knows how long.

    You put a decent amount of time into a site, you're rightfully worried it won't rank or you'll mess something up, so you basically don't take enough action to make it rank... because of overanalysis paralysis.

    Does anyone struggle with this? How did / do you overcome it? "What anchors? Where to place links? How many exacts (& how fast to build exacts / any kw-based anchors)? Which PBN's to use for kw anchors?"

    In the grand scheme of things, you can't think about these things when scaling (I've been at scale before). Decision making fatigue sets in quickly and nothing ends up getting done.

    It's usually better to go full "no fucks given" and potentially fail than to overanalyize. But it's also harder, especially when you've seen your affiliate business be completely destroyed 4+ times over the years from updates. Curious to see if anyone has been able to overcome it.

    Tl;dr - how do you turn your brain off (the part that second guesses things), trust your instincts (being you know what you're doing, obviously), and take action without worrying about the outcome of every action?

    Thanks

    so you are brand new to seo and you ask us what you should NOT do to not get his unranked site even more unranked

    you have to be very skilled to penalise your site while building backlinks. here the softwares are running 24/7 and i dont care about anything. I have mainly naked urls as Tier 1 with shitload of nofollow links as well so theres no way im getting penalised for what is happening on tier 3,4,5

    Do something small and start from there. That's how I got into SEO with low competition niches.
