I hand created some buffer sites with about 5-7 pages of unique content on each one. I have one main article that all of the other articles link to. The main article is the only one with the external link. Each page on the buffer site was SEO'd for a specific keyword related to the main article on the same site. When I check rankings for the main page on each buffer site the internal page which is targeting a similar but not the same keyword outranks it for every buffer site. I've even seen where 2 inner pages are outranking the main page keywords. I take that back. One of them is the exception to the above now. Just checked one I forgot. All of the pages have been backlinked with around 150-300 links showing up in YSE for each buffer site. It's like google doesn't like the main page with the external link to my money site. I also haven't been able to get my site to budge for the keyword I'm targeting on these buffer sites. Each site is about 1.5 months old and all are indexed except for the stupid xanga site which just refuses to index properly. The SEO is near perfect for each site with img alt tags, bold/underline kws, anchor text links. Really the only thing I forgot to do when I set them up is have an external link to an authority site. Anyone have any ideas wtf is going on?
