    I have a site that im trying to rank in the top three position for a dictionary word. Though it shouldn't be 'that' hard since it has been on television ....was getting around 50k UV a day for a while a 'few months back' and has the keyword in the url title from reaching the front page of a social bookmarking site.

    Here are some of the stats for the site


    • Currently getting about 500-1000 UV per day
    • 323 backlinks
    • 900 domain backlinks
    • 3 years old
    • all whitehat, linking never even really done by me, people talk about the site.
    • Haven't got a PR yet, though I think I should have... I have a blog half the age no linking really done on it and its PR 3.. Might request google PR reconsideration

    Backlink page rank stats

    PR 0 1 2 3 4 5
    318 1 2 1 1 1



    For a few weeks there I was ranking in the top ten for the keyword in the UK but on the fourth page worldwide (still in fact for that)

    I used market samurai to get an idea of how many backlinks my competitors had as I was sure they must have thousands... turns out nearly every single one of them has a lot less back links of a lot less quality.

    One site that is outranking me only has 3 PR 0 links.... and no in title.... no in description or anything like that... its just some random page with a few pictures on it.


    Can anyone tell me what Im doing wrong here? Should I just go all out and buy backlinks like crazy? untill I have more than the 10:1 ratio that I have now?

    Thanks

    Man... Drop much, much more high PR backlinks here...

    PR0 backlinks will not give you much power.

    Try some edu backlinks as well.

    You can use 101backlinks service from bs section to get some WH high pr backlinks.
    That should help.
