    Hey

    I messed up with my backlink strategy (anchor ratio, some poor backlinks, and to many links from one domain because of 301 redirect which btw i removed like a 2 weeks ago but still see it in my webmaster tools so i think they still count it). I have got about 50 PBN links linked to my article, I stuck on 40-50th positions in google for a mont or longer. I started build my links in about 4 month ago (medium competition).

    What should i do know?

    1. play with anchors on PBN i and leave the article as it is?
    2. or copy my article and post it again with different URL (on the same domain) and start ranking over again only with high quality backlinks (i got 20 web 2.0 ready to be tanked with tier 2 links + about 50 pbn articles ready) and use mainly brand name, lsi and raw url as an anchor + couple of times my main keyword only on strongest pbn websites?

    please advice, thanks!

    First of all if you are going for PBN, never add GWT in your site.
    Get the complete ahrefs link report and analyze the backlinks and anchor text. If your main keyword has high % of anchor text then dilute it with web 2.0 and PBN posts (using longtail and generic keywords).

    Keep a close watch on SERP movement and see if it helps.

    I would start over with a new site, this will be safer :)
