    My website's homepage is PR3 and some internal pages are PR1. To be honest, my on-page SEO is garbage because I don't have much time to work on the site, but the content is 100% unique and well written.

    I have some Scrapebox comments and profiles done. I have SB comments also blasted to the profiles. I payed for Lindexed service to get my backlinks indexed. I have used a service that everyone claims that it puts them on the 1st page.

    I did all of this and when I search for my keywords on Google they aren't even in the top 200 spots. Can anyone provide me with any insight? It doesn't make sense that I'm PR3.

    The only traffic I'm getting is Yahoo Answers and SEO Booster PRO.

    Scrapebox ist not a whitehat seo tool. It is a spam tool. Its decent i own it myself but you need to know what you are doing. Also i would not use it on my main website.

    Apart from that, without knowing your keywords and websites its impossible to tell. Could be that the niche you are in is very competive.

    There are several threads on this forum discussing exactly what you are experiencing.

    As for the lack of effort, I'm surprised you are ranked at all. Panda is still doing its thing and several clients of mine and folks here on BHW are all seeing unexplainable changes almost daily.

    Once everything settles, I don't think you will need to worry about why you are a PR 3. :)

    You also need to read some white hat stuff. SB blast and profile links is not really the whole SEO process. SEO is more complicated than that. But if you have done your keyword research thoroughly (targeting very low competition keywords with EDM) and if you have an almost perfect on site optimization you can always rank with profile links and SB links.

    Hi, i'm repeating what they said but that's the truth, even if you blast your site with thousands of these links if your onpage seo isn't good, they're not going to make any diference in getting you rank, just take some time in optimizing your site and you will see significant improvement's in the number of your visitors.

    Your links are extremely low quality and like everyone is saying, your on-site can't be garbage. Those types of links are really only used to building links to other higher quality properties that link to you.

    I see a lot of sites ranking with "garbage" backlinks. it just takes months (3 months-5 months usually) of blasting them to get results.

    To the OP can you be more specific as in time frame. Is this days or weeks, how much time has this link building taken place.

    It sounds like you are experiencing a classic case of the Google Dance, where the site can disappear for days or even weeks at a time, before reappearing and ranking for it's keywords.

    Ok I'm going to follow up with some details. My site is nearing 5 months. Page Rank is 3. When I visited a 'check pr' site it said Yahoo found 88 Backlinks while Google reads N/A. When I went to check if my site was 'malicious' on Google it said 'no' but it also said 'Google has not visited the site in 90 days'.

    My on-page SEO is great now due to WP Easy SEO so I don't know what the problem is. Indexing services have not helped because Google doesn't see any backlinks and I'm not ranking for any keyword for some reason.

    I have over 100 forum profiles. Some on high pr sites and some on .edu but Google isn't seeing any of them. Something is not right...

    As for timeline, in the beginning of August I had the Authority profiles and edu profiles done.

    Google only ever shows a small sample of the links its finds (using the search operator), it wont show all of them. And in GWT tools they only shows ones they think of as 'quality'.

    I dont really pay any attention the link reporting from google.
