    I have a website with 40+ posts on it, and it's 2 months old. This is my first I am trying to rank. Most of my keywords are in between the positions 40 - 180 in the SERPS. Only problem I am having is that I am building backlinks for keywords in position 40,108, & 200 but they are not moving in the SERPS. These keywords are not competitive by any means. Many of the top 10 results on Google don't even have a backlink to them and some of the keywords' top 3 in SERPS are yahoo answers and youtube vids, all with 0 backlinks or no more than 5 (and these backlinks aren't very high quality or PR).

    For each keyword (inner page) I have built more than 10 web 2.0s.These web 2.0 are high PR (i.e. Blogger, Weebly, Wordpress, etc..). My exact keyword anchor text for each set of backlinks is 10% or less. My backlinks are handwritten by me, and are unique content and high quality and related to the topic of my site.Each web 2.0 post is minimum 500 words. After building these backlinks I have put them in an indexing service and they are all getting indexed. On average I am building 5-10 web 2.0s for each of the 3 keywords.

    If you think it might be my onsite optimization, i just want to say my keyword density is 1-1.5% for my inner pages. I am using Yoast SEO and making sure all the indicator circles are green and that I am meeting the requirements. I also have My keyword in the H2 tags at least once. I made sure there's no duplicate content on my site, meaning I wrote excerpts for each post and made sure the categories pages are no index. I have followed php's guide to an authority site and implemented what he has said.

    Despite all of this, not a single one of those 3 keywords I am trying to rank has even moved up or down. Is there something I am doing wrong? because I have seen people going up the SERPS here on BHW, 7 days after them building a couple of web 2.0s. I have been building these backlinks for 2 weeks now and I have seen no results/movements whatsoever.

    Sorry If the post was long, i wanted to be as detailed as I could be.

    Beware of too much sameness. A backlink technique may not be questionable in itself, but considered unnatural or 'spammy' if overdone. Mix up the Web 2.0s with other quality links, diversify the backlinks.

    Hi there,

    I'll be assuming that your content is 100% unique and legitimately written but did you publish all the posts at once,or you've done it over time?

    How related are the keywords between them?I'm asking this because you should be focusing most of the articles around your main niche or keywords.

    For How long have you started building this links?

    Regarding Web 2.0s,what kind of content are you using on them and how much?There are some important facts that you shouldn't be ignoring.

    Regarding your 10% anchor text ratio twards your main keyword,I want to say that you're pretty much gambling with google.I wouldn't go higher than 1-3% in order to be safe.

    Yes,on-site optimization is a huge factor and you must be sure that your main page is actualy the best one.You should determine your on-site optimization by spying on your top 10 competitors.If they're on the first page already,than they should be doing it right.

    Feel free to add me on skype and i'll have a look over your site.

    That is strange. 2 months should be enough to see any results. What tools do you use to track rankings?

    I do recommend diversification of links.. Here, link building has been the recommended way to push your website higher in the search engine rankings. The higher your site is positioned the better traffic you will receive as a result. You could know a famous saying "Don't put all your eggs in one basket". It comes true in this case! Good Luck..

    I agree that you have to really do some competitor research and also make sure that you are not in a ultra competitive niche. I have had great results with the Yost SEO tool. Good luck bro-
