    I could rank for really hard keywords before the update in september. Since then I am having moderate success with my method. Can somebody tell me what changed since the last update?

    I.e one of my sites is having the same rank after building 900 unique ip backlinks as it had without those links. All my backlinks are unrelated but i see competitors ranking with unrelated backlinks.

    Any ideas?

    What changed since the last one?

    Tumblr lost its mojo. Blogspot is king. Spam still rules major money kw's. Amazon.com and Ebay seem to make up 99% of Google results, other than that it's the same old Google trying to push adwords down your throat and spreading FUD via their usual mouthpieces.

    900 ref IPs
    Anchor1 - brand name 40%
    Anchor20 keyword 30%
    The other anchors are random keywords all under 10%

    My backlinks come from decent sites, no spammy shit.

    This.

    The united directories of "Amazon and Ebay"
    Not surprising they give preferential treatment to their biggest advertisers. Given just how crap both of these are in terms of the quality on their URL's.
    Ebay and Amazon are stuck in 2002 in terms of content management and navigation. Until users place their own reviews on stuff Amazon's description and page content is a 100% lift from whatever manufacturers site the product is from. It adds nothing, it is not well organised, the navigation is crap, the colour scheme is just about passable, the image tagging is none existent.

    In short they break every fucking rule that Google tell us "mere mortals" to follow.. yet get top billing in SERPs
    Mind you Google break every rule as well. The archetype of "do as we say, not as we do"

    Wankers

    No doubt there are some extra kickbacks involved.

    Internal changes in Google go very frequently. It is not possible to tell what changes were exactly implemented because no one has access to their algos and what we can see are only the results.
