However...recently I've been boosting my backlinks and have seen nothing but negative results. I always make sure to have a very diverse backlink profile, and I have varied to anchor text.
I had a few of my terms in the very first position on the first page of Google for about two weeks. After adding more backlinks with the same anchor text and boosting them with backlink booster the page feel to position 8, which is really affecting my traffic and revenue.
I have had this happen before and I thought it was probably just google dance, but after several days now, its staying in that position.
I have a few possible explanations for this and I was hoping that someone could verify what could be making this happen.
1) My website has a very high bounce rate, so maybe Google is reflecting that in my ranking. However, how can someone have a good adsense or amazon affiliate site without having a very high drop rate?
2) Now that my site is actually aging a little, maybe it was just a glitch that it was in the first position and now its starting to settle a little bit.
Those are the only two explanations I can come up with and I was hoping someone with a bit more knowledge could help explain.
Should I continue to build more backlinks? It seems like the more I add, the lower my site has been falling recently. Very confusing and upsetting.
Anyone with some knowledge on the situation, please help.
