    I've been getting into niche web sites and internet marketing, i've been doing it for about a month now and reading/working for 14+ hours a day. So far I've made $3 on amazon affiliates. I have one main niche website, with multiple micro niche posts under the same major niche.

    I have 0 ranking on google, but I have 4 web 2.0's 30 PA scraped tumblr's per post for like 7 different posts backlinking to my website. How come my website isn't showing up on google, even like rank 300?

    Thanks!

    PS: one other question: Is it okay to have a major niche website with multiple sub niche categories, and then send backlinks from web 2.0's directly to each sub niche post?

    There are a lot of reasons why your website probably isn't ranking even in the top 300.

    The main one is probably: Onpage SEO you can read up on Onpage seo here

    Another thing is just because a tumblr provider states that a tumblr account has "PA: 30" doesn't mean its a quality tumblr account that can pass decent link juice. It just means that Moz using their filters has claimed that it might have a "PA of 30".

    You need to see if the tumblr url has even been indexed yet or not, the best way to do that is by checking the "Cache" date. I check all of my backlinks I build or have others build for me by looking at the cache date of when google last crawled and cached that webpage. To check this you open up chrome and type in:

    Cache:%URL%

    Be sure to replace the %URL% with the url you want to check the cache date on. if it gives you an error then that means either A) Google hasn't crawled this webpage/domain yet or B) Google doesnt find said website/url worth caching into their servers.


    If they dont cache it, that means it isn't indexed.

    It depends on factors like the site's age , content's age , kws competition and a shit load of other stuff

    thing is that SEO takes time , keep building links and the rankings should improve

    Focus mostly on blog comments , web 2.0s and PBN links maybe a few video shares & social Signals

    Good Luck !

    You need a better links to rank higher nowadays. Simply using web2.0 won't do much on serp. Add more quality links such as guest post, PBN, contextual edu, etc.

    @LatteGrande Links became a LOT less important. Social signals do help though.

    A small roadmap:

    1) Get an aged domain from Flippa (>6 months old & indexed in Google before).
    2) SSL + CDN
    3) If Wordpress then Yoast + W3 Cache + Google AMP + reduce image sizes
    4) Try to get some Facebook/Twitter signals + google your competition and ask the webmasters for a link whom linked to your competition.
    5) Use Moz+SemRush
    6) Check Google Webmaster tools for errors. Too many 404 errors will make the Google (and Bing) bot stop crawling your site.

    You should pay attention On-page SEO. Try quality PBN links, Guest posts and Authority links.
    Share your site on social medias like FB, IG, and G+ etc.
    It depends on Keyword competition and try to target some Long tail keywords.

    And yet you forgot to mention about onpage. Smh

    If backlinks are less important than social signals then just keep it to yourself.

    There could be a ton of reasons. Really depends on what niche you're in and what keywords you're targeting. Getting a handful of shitty web 2.0 links for a pretty competitive niche isn't going to move the needle; you're going to need to up your game sir!

    It mainly depends upon keyword competition
    If you are using high competition keywords then you need to do powerful link building Liken PBN, web 2.0
    Use long tail keywords

    I would suggest if you are newbies
    avoid high competition keywords
    focus on low competition keywords
