    Hey guys, I have a pr 1 blog with a few anchor texts linking to my domain. My domain was in top page for 3 months and getting good bounce rate. 30-50% from Google. I had about 40 backlinks from my pr 1 property. Just a few days ago my domain hit #1. However, now I went down to #100 and climbing back up. So I started to dig into my competitions backlinks on the first page and copy theirs. Most of my competition is either .com/.org between 1-10. But I'm being out ranked by tumblr and blogspot. Further more the backlinks from those sites look to be fiverr gigs. Mostly crappy wiki, profile, comments. I don't want to spam my domain with crappy backlinks just to get back to the top.

    Whats going on with Google? I thought that good quality niche related backlinks were in and non related backlinks were out. This is just plain spam backlinks my competition has.
    My goal is to create more high pr properties but I'm wondering why this has happened.

    Looks like google doesn't see them as crappy ;)

    Get some good wiki links, do a press release or two, get some articles out there. Pretty much do all the basics, including the copying of your competitors links, and add some of your own links. Then link all of your links and you'll be fine.
