I've had a similar experience to scnonah who also made a thread about this. I found a keyword with 14,000 searches and a MOZ keyword difficulty of 9. I really thought I had hit a goldmine, and so immediatly bought a domain and hosting. I set up the website and decided I needed backlinks. I was really excited by this opportunity, and so I bought the same backlink service as him (the $15 version, though), and my rankings have severly dropped. I know this is a brand new site (I did wait about a week after registering), and it might just be a google dance, but after just setting up the website, I was on page 4-5. Now, I'm not ranking for anything anymore... I'm a beginner at seo and was enticed by the sound of the SEO package, but I think it has ruined my site. Here is a report on the backlinks from linkresearchtools (Free Trial) (Only shows a couple as it is a free trial, there are more than 50 links in total.) It basically tells how spammy the link is. As you can tell, most of the backlinks are not good quality. Now I'm worried I've completely killed my website, and so I'm thinking of disavowing all of the links in Search Console. Is this a good idea? Should I disavow these links and manually create web 2.0's? <-- I think this is enough for me to be on the first page, as some websites on the first page don't even have a single backlink! It is a CPA niche, btw. Thanks.
