Hello, Looking for some assistance from the BHW community. Mail order bride website hired us and we commenced work back in mid October. At the time, they were ranked #12 and #19 for "mail order brides" and "mail order bride". They fired us a week ago for not achieving results. To be fair, their rankings hadn't budged after 3 months. They refused to pay us our outstanding invoice for January. Now their rankings have dropped to #28 and #27 respectively. Back on Oct 15, here were their site stats: Page Authority: 54/100 Domain Authority: 44/100 Total Links: 6,593 Total Internal Links: 910 Total External Links: 5,683 Google Analytics Code: Installed Ranking for keywords: Mail order brides ? 12 Mail order bride ? 19 In the first month we provided recommendations to improve their onsite SEO factors. We also changed their Title and Description tags to be less spammy and more grammatically correct. Our analysis showed that their site didn't have enough links built for inner pages; we recommended creating content for them and then building links to those pages. Our team wrote pretty good, original content for 2 new inner pages around "common myths of mail order brides" and "tips for online dating". About 450 to 600 words, with a few outbound links sprinkled in to authority sites. We also wrote 2 other new pages called "Ask Anna" that were like "Dear Abby" in a question and answer format. Client claimed Ask Anna was useless and a couple days ago told me they took it down, to our objections. Client also was mad that we were using target keywords that weren't the core ones they wanted, but I had to explain that over-optimizing anchor text is a big red flag. We mixed in long tail, branded, and ones like "click here" and "learn about" for more a natural look. We started link building to those inner pages, using a rotation of different keywords, not really wanting to rank those pages higher but just to increase the depth of the links to the site. Over the course of the next two and a half month, we did the following: -One Hoist Rocket from HoistSEO to the homepage -10 authority profiles on Linkvana -20 .edu links and pyramid push on Link Chicks -3 Link Pushes from linkpushing(dot)net, one for the homepage, 2 inner pages -purchased social media clicks -20 .edu links, .edu/.gov wiki links, 100 mixed links, bookmarks, 200 microlinks for inner pages from Link Chicks -3 Link Pushes from linkpushing(dot)net for 3 inner pages in January -dotEDUlinks(dot)com, 3 packages for $150 each targeting 3 inner pages in January -strategic seo blitz package from Warrior Forum for one inner page in January I realize some of the benefits from link building in early January shouldn't show up yet as it's too early. But any idea what I did wrong here? Even if the client fired me, I want to do right by them and figure out if I can help them in any way. Thanks in advance for your input.
