    Hi guys,

    I have something that I have not seen before.

    The rankings for my main keyword has been dropping over the last few days and the other keywords are basically staying the same?

    Site is only about 25 days old with mainly 15 - 20 PBN links.

    Anchor text is reasonably split up into naked URL with a mixture of keywords.

    Anyone else seen this?

    Maybe I need to mix up my anchors more?

    Thanks
     
  2. Google will naturally drop your rankings if you build too many links too quickly. Its all in the Google patents.

    Check out this really interesting thread from Anton Jones from a few weeks ago;

    Here is the actual patent (with diagrams) filed by Google.

    I often see similar situation with new websites while i am adding links to inner pages. I always consider this a positive sign because after month or two of fluctuations the keyword gets in top 10.

    Cheers guys.

    I wouldn't think 15 - 20 quality links as too many for a new site? Maybe so though.

    Should I just keep at it and add maybe a few more links and then see what happens so?

    Cheers again

    Continue building links slowly.

    Increase link quality, increase keyword diversity and as visitors increase increase links. If that doesn't work it may be something else.

    Be slow and steady with link building. Or it will make you scream in pain. Good luck, OP.
