    Hi,

    after the 6 March my rankings have been decreasing slowly. Most of my KWs drift around #50. I add 100% unique content everyday and try building links slowly on a daily basis. That's why I asked myself why my rankings are not increasing at all. I tried changing my on-site SEO by testing many different variations of titels, tags, meta descriptions, keyword density etc. but it hasn't done anything. I also checked my anchor text distribution but it seemed to be ok. But then I compared other urls and subdomains like ...mysite.com, http://mysite.com, www.mysite.com and http://www.mysite.com and I concluded that this mess with completely different (over-optimised) anchor texts on different urls and subdomains (see diagramms below) must be responsible for my rankings strugling.

    I only target one url and it's http://mysite.com. The rest was caused by 2, 3 services I bought. They were provided with my targeted url yet decided to add www or something like this to it.

    What do you think I should do? Dilute the anchor ratio on each url/subdomain?

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    When you decide if you choose www or not, just edit the .htacces file and make a 301 redirection from www to yoursite.com or the opposite.
    Also, try to make more backlinks with other keywords, yourdomain.com and using generic keywords.

    Is it absolutely necessary? I've always been trying to build links to http://

    What happens when someone go to the www version of the website? Are they being redirected to the non-www version? If not, you might wanna set a 301 redirect. The reason being, if you had both www and non-www version of the website being indexed by G, you'll have duplicate content all across your site.

    Yeah, they're being redirected from www to no www. I think the main question remains. Can the poor anchor text profile of the www. and http://www... versions of my site have a begative impact on the http://... version which I've been targeting form the beginning?

    Home Page:
    If you are forwarding non-dub to dub then yes, your profile is one.

    All links pointing to both versions will play a part in your rankings.

    Best thing to do is check your foodie with a tool like ahrefs, also check the top 3 sites for your target keywords and see what percentage target anchor they are using.

    I did both. You can have a look at my anchor text profile in the OP (pic).

    But if I'm building links to http:// and NOT www. then I'm doing the opposite, right? I never used any redirect. I simply started building links to http://. Can the www profile (the few links) harm my http:// link profile which I've been building links to?
