    Ok, i was ranking no.1 for 3 keywords from Jan - May, but from June - Aug fell to no.2 for all three keywords after doing a small xrumer blast at my inner pages.

    My site is PR2, 10 months old with 7 pages. Yahoo shows 1000 backlinks

    I have done the below but still stuck at no.2:

    1) Added 1000 Social bookmarks
    2) 2 x 3 level high quality link pyramid packages + XR/SB Blast the links
    3) 50+ pr 1-5 contextual backlinks
    4) Added 3 more unique content pages.

    Competitor has 35k spammy/blogroll backlinks. PR3, 2.5 years old with 6 pages.

    Anything i am missing or can do to get back the no.1 spot??

    I have done very little SB/XR blasts at the money site as people say this is not wise but my competitor is obviously benefitting from these spammy links. He also has a some paid blogroll links on main page of other sites which i do not have.

    More Xrumer? Thoought direct xrumer blasts have less effects since panda and if anything you get penalised like i did by dropping from no.1 to no.2?

    I do not think you dropped from no.1 to no.2, i think he just move from to no.1. Its not the same. I mean you are no.2, because he do something and move in no.1, not because you do something wrong and dropped (well the xrumer direct blast is wrong, but i dont think G notice that, coz if he do, you must drop more). Just beat him with quality links step by step, take your time, do not push the process too hard with lol blasts.

    Thanks but i had been out ranking him for 6 months then i do a xrumer blast to inner pages and next day i drop to no.2 and never returned so maybe just a coincidence!

    Will just keep adding quality links and going to avoid blasting my site as cannot afford going into sandbox as these are valuable keywords...

    Time to give your content an update, new content and fresh links and all the other glorious things that you have been doing for so long should get you back to the number 1 spot. But make sure that you keep it legal.
