    my website is 3 months stuck on page 2.... I constantly building normal links and for 3 months it never came up or down... it's staying still on it's position, may up/down for 1-2 positions but nothing major at all.....

    Anybody on the same situation?? What's wrong?

    Have you reviewed the strength of your competition? What's the backlink profile of the page one sites? Have you added any new content recently?

    Yes i have added new contents recently and even do backlinking to those new contents.... I have the confident to rank this site now since I have ranked top 1 on these keywords few months ago with the same method but now I'm stuck.! Top sites isn't much to offer. Don't know what's really wrong...

    Maybe you should buy some high PR links.

    I have many websites stucked on 2nd page. Welcome to new google algo. It's "buy adwords or die". This is a black hat forum so what ? Get another domain and start again and again :) I guess nobody bielieves in this "content is king" and "make a good site, people will link to you" lies :)

    You didnt even check his site and presumed it sucks...Maybe you dont understand what the question is.. If you cant respect noob questions, I'm afraid, you will soon realise what goes around comes around

    OP: Its becoming increasingly evident that ranking now takes a lot longer than it would take before, Check this thread out http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...aiting-period-after-may-14-payday-update.html

    Dont be disheartened though, as long as you keep link velocity and diversity consistent, you will soon see movement. Ofcourse, this is based on presumption that your onsite seo is good, kw research is well thought out and competition is researched and so on...
    There is more than helpful advice here in the forum, pelase feel free to browse and ask questions. You will find some nonsensical responses sometimes but hey ho...more often than its by trollers and postboosters..

    what do you mean by "normal link" ?

    IMO, you need pbn / high pr link etc, to give extra boost. btw did you have already ?

    how do you check them ? how do you know ?

    Have you analysis 10 top competitors for your targeted keyword? There are many factors you need to know. e.g: page rank, quality of backlinks, contents of competitors, etc.

    After you get the data, your site must to be better than 10 top competitors, so you can overcome them. Maybe this process needs months.

    I'd like to echo the post made by "cloudyquasar" and also touch on OP's link build strategy.

    Since I'm not sure what "regular" links are and you haven't mentioned the keyword competitiveness it's diffiuclt to help you. That being said, what may seem like plenty of links may not be sufficient to boost rankings. Remember that your competitors also build backlinks and that to gain foothold you will need to outpace them.

    Until you provide more details I would advise changing up your BL strategy. Increase diversity, buy links from a different source, etc.

    Check out the top 10 or even top 3 ranking for your keyword, and have a look at their backlinks. Replicate them as much as possible, and out do them in other ways... you'll soon rank.

    normal links like, web2.0 (blogspot, wordpress etc) articles, social bookmarks, social...

    Haven't tried PBN yet, high pr link yes but some...

    Checked them with ahrefs... checked the top 3 they have fewer backlinks than mine and some high pr homepage links... what surprises me was the top 1, it has 100 total links only....

    It could be due to the onsite optimization. When I was starting out in the SEO industry, offpage seo seemed to be the primary optimization. I was wrong.
    Besides onsite optimization is not just about having meta tags, it goes way deeper.

    If you want I can do quick onsite audit of your website. PM me.
    PS. I won't steal your niche :p // I have more than enough work on my plate.

    Since no one has touched on this yet, are you competing against authority sites? There are a lot of keywords out there where no amount of links will help you overcome the authority of the domains ranking at the top.

    I guess so too...


    They are not authority, they're just like me... some sites on page 1 are 10x crappier than mine...
