Why I fell down from 2nd page to 3rd page when I bought backlinks?

    Hello,

    I'm a newbie in SEO and I need help.

    I'm ranking for an easy keyword. Ahrefs shows that I need 0 backlinks to be on the first page in Google.

    I was on the second page and I've bought backlinks from 4 websites and now Ahrefs shows that I have over 2000 backlinks.

    Can someone explain why my page has fallen down to the third page?

    Is it possible that the bought backlinks were of bad quality and you purchased too many of them at one time?

    Perhaps you bought cheap low quality links. In that case, expect the site to drop again.

    You only need a ouple if quality links and good content to rank for low competition keywords.

    I've bought backlinks from my local country websites.

    If I rank for my local country keyword I have to use backlinks only with this country language right?

    First, if ahref tell you that you need only 4 links
    You should but if you have acquired 2 thousand link something went wrong

    Ahrefs and Google are separate entities, it can be also dance, but as my colleagues said.,if you paid for cheap/low-quality links, that`s what you got.

    You buy a blast, which we use on tier 2/3 links, I doubt you have 2000 quality links, only big brands got like that organically.

    Show us some examples (root domain)
    Ex: BHW have a link from https://medium.com/expired-tumblr-d...to-get-high-pr-pa-tf-tumblr-blogs-b60e91dbcff
    And you share just https://medium.com/

    Keep it rolling, welcome to the jungle! :)

    It may be because of low quality links. check with backlink quality and point only quality and relevant links regularly.
