    You are not ranking because:

    1) you are using forum links
    2) you are using blogroll links
    3) you are using links from sites with bad quality content
    4) you are using links from penalized sites
    5) you are using links from sites with spammed hosts
    6) you are using links from a linkwheel or something like that with an obvious footprint
    7) you are using comment links
    8) your link velocity is wrong
    9) you bought something on fiverr
    10 you bought into the fib of permanent links
    11) you are concerned with tiers

    You're welcome.

    You know what's as annoying as newb threads asking the same questions? "Experts" and "Regulars" bitching about annoying newb threads...

    I think it's way more in depth than the 11 reasons you stated, especially since they are all about offpage tactics. I rank pretty well and my Competitors that are above me in the serps all use very high velocity spam (think porn anchor Tumblr web 2.0s without and redirects as s buffer) , I've learnt that links may be be the most important ranking factor, but ultimately it has to be pointed to a site which has very well thought out architecture, copywriting, metadata as well as social properties to it's name before links will really move the needle.

    Of course there will be those who still point out that despite having all of the above-mentioned still aren't ranking. Many of these people forget that keyword competitivity levels and the existing top ten results may have more relevant semantic copy as well as authority from PBN sites or legitimate blogs/sites , that's really most of it.

    The problem is: Everyone simply refuses to consider that their site is indeed lacking of the above simply because they assume that having invested time/money into what already exists naturally equates to being perfect or better than the competition.

    99% of people do NOT rank, because they choose crappy keywords.

    got a page that ranks for 30KWs...

    I just copypasted them in the footer of the article for a test to see if you can rank with "goold old spammy tactics" of keyword stuffing.
    well, main KW got a +40, the rest of the 3 word combos all got iinto top 10.


    oh. and as I dont sell 7$ WSO or 37$ monthly bullshitmembercrapsite logins, I can freely disclose: there aint NO COMPETITION.

    Many of your points are wrong my friend and on top of that you completely neglected the importance of on-site SEO.

    t-face can I just send this list to my one friend who complains the money isn't rolling in even tho he plastered the site with so many ads its crazy?
    This post is totally worth sending back a few years in the way back machine to the many hot-to-trot domainers with gogo Sherpa mentality. Caught in their own silo mentality, one might say.
