I've had a number of sites for over a year. I've used services, many xrumer 10k blasts, 1k blasts, other blasts, bookmarking, directories, blog comments, done mild scrapebox, some AMR, probably 10 linkpushes each, couple linkwheels each, edu, gov, angela, paul, manual, lol. You would think each site would have quite a few backlinks. But none of them have more than like 150 - 200 backlinks. I feel like I'm a part of some big marketing scam perpetrated by people trying to sell their services. My sites have had decent results with some of these services, but why can't I see the backlinks anywhere. I mean, my sites would have 100,000 backlinks each if all the backlinks showed up. But not one of my sites have more than like 180 backlinks. It sucks because i have so many keywords stuck around position number 12 - 24, if they could all just go to the first page, life would be great. But I can't get over that hurdle. I'm stuck in mediocre land.
