Hello guys, This thing is driving me crazy, so I thought I would ask you if anybody has some similar experince, or solution for the problem. I have two 3 year old domains, they hit 1st page and some 1st places even in google two years ago, but I havent't done anything to them ever since, so the rankings dropped to 2nd-3rd pages. I though I would reopen the projects, So I cleared up a bunch of HTML validation errors(I was quite newbie at that time), and started publishing, so that getting new links would seem more natural. I am building a silo for my original terms, so I am adding some content depth for the main topics. It looks like: domain / original-term -> this had the rankings a couple years ago domain / original-term / new-article1 -> freshly added domain / original-term / new-article2 -> freshly added etc.. I am giving some links to the new articles as well, but started linking again the original-term url, as main focus for my backlins, as those are my money terms. Strange thing is that for both two sites I have reopened and started linkbuilding, rankings slightly drop. Not much just 5-10-15 places but more drops than gains. I am extremely cautious with baclink anchors I have not used the same exact anchor 2 times, nor exact anchors for my key terms. I am backlinking with 100% unique 100% relevant and 100% human-readable 500-2000 character articles. So for me everything seems like I am doing things as they should be done, and I am expecting to see slight gains instead of slight drops, yet the opposite happens. Anybody had same experience?
