Hey Guys

I've been trying to rank a few sites for a med-high competitive KW.

The sites are stuck on page 3 for the last month or so without moving much.

I'm still building links via guest posting, related niche comments and web20s.

New content is added every now and then.

Any idea what else I can try to boost the rankings?
 
You probably have to add more high quality links like pbns or good guest postings. Nothing new.
 
Just check how many backlinks the websites which are in 2nd page and 1st page have got. Also check the quality of those backlinks.
 
When did you start ?
Age of the content ?
Why not try some PBN links ?

The site is about 7 months old...started serious backlink building about 6 months ago.

I've tried some PBNs. Just that I'm careful of what I link to my money sites.

Good PBNs are hard to come by
 
I too have this problem. Please share some expert comments here.
 
Your PBN links and web2.0s won't really help you. The PBNs are likely to get deindexed very soon and leave you stuck where you are. In these situations, I usually do a backlink analysis of the sties on page 1, using a tool like SEM Rush or Ahref. Then i would try to get links on those sites you see
 
Sometimes you’re doing everything right but rankings won’t go up.

Instead of advicing more pbn and links I want to ask you to check top 10.
Does it look frozen rather than volatile?

Some niches get locked for months and even 1000 of da60 links won’t do things.

If my guess is right then just keep building links with the same pace to get top10 instead of penalty in couples of months.

Good luck and never give up;)

Good tip. That's what I've been doing for the top 3 sites. They might be hiding some of their backlinks from crawlers so i just copy what ever i can scrape.

The top 5 are pretty much rotating amongst themselves...but to be fair those domains have been around longer than mine hence the top spots.
 
Still a weak DA since it's only 7 months old

Conerstone content are about 2-2.5k words.

Supporting ones are 800- 1000 words.
What is the actual DA? I’d higher the ”cornerstone” or pillar content to about 2.5-3.5 and aim for 1500 words for the ”supporting ones”.

It’s funny how everyone mentioned backlinks without even asking how your site is structured, what your content looks like, how you rank for longer tail keywords and if you have optimized it in the form og onsite seo but also speed and such.

DA is 17 at the moment.

I've paid careful attention to onsite. It's optimised for mobile and load speed is sub 3s.

I'm ranking for a couple of longtails on page 2 but not the main KWs that i'm targetting at.
 
I think your site may be lacking in its overall authority - try bumping your site with ultra high quality links from news sites, and when you gradually increase these type of links, you'd notice that your SERP ranking will inch up higher with every new addition.
Also, make sure that your site also complies with other on-page optimization as well, otherwise, with good links without good on-page optimization, that won't work either.

can you explain more about the supporting content where and how should we manage it. should we publish it on same website making internal link or different website linking back to the main contain.
