    Hey guys,

    my website dropped 7 positions on its main KW and 14 positions on secondary KW. I have been using various sources of backlinks, mainly outsourced from here.

    Majestic SEO says:

    Referring Domains 126 External Backlinks 2,408
    Educational Ref. Backlinks: 12
    Educational Ref. Domains: 1
    Referring IP addresses: 93
    Referring Class C subnets: 88
    Indexed URLs: 44
    Backlink Breakdown
    Images: 26
    NoFollow: 1,558
    Redirects: 1
    Frames: 1
    Deleted: 13
    Citation Flow 31, Trust Flow 13


    Among top 10 anchor texts, 5 is naked URL or brand. However, in Ahrefs, it looks like many backlinks have been lost:

    Is it possible to gain the rankings again? I have Article Kevo here so maybe drip fed linkbuilding from wikis and articles can help? What do you think?

    Some speculate that the new rollout isn't done yet. I've been seeing plenty of variations lately, some good, most bad. Not really concerned at this point as it's still varying lots.

    Hi,

    Same problem here, i aded social sigs, bunch of article's, web 2.0,s blog com, nothing help. All keywords are moving just one spots up and next day one down. Maybe google has set some website's tempory on hold. Maybe just give it some more time?

    What did you mean, Moosey? The quote went empty.

    I would recommend you to get some strong links from authority limited blog networks and put in some related comments. Try to focus on high quality backlinks instead of the very spammy ones. GL getting your rankings back, shouldnt be that hard.

    One of my sites that I haven't worked on in months dropped in a similar fashion. I got it back by mainly building naked URL links, MyDomain anchors as well as click me type of anchors. Start up slow and build up some velocity and I am sure you'll get there!
