I have continued building backlinks to these internal pages and I even set up an internal linking structure on my blog because I read that having a good link structure on your website will help with your SEO. Still, my pages keep dropping, slowly but surely, and now my prize SERP result, the one that was actually making me a decent amount of referral fees is in the 10th spot, and the revenue has completely dried up.
Now, in trying to fix this problem I have continued building backlinks with the anchor text for that keyword in them, but the result continues to drop. Does anyone have an answer for this? The pages that are beating me out have less backlinks and the pages aren't even optimized as well.
I'm trying to find a way to fix this so I can get some of my traffic and sales back. My blog was getting almost 200 hits a day, and that has dropped to around 50 or 60 now without this keyword result.
Now, should I keep building backlinks to that page with the anchor text or should I just focus on building backlinks to newer pages on my blog? I have a few posts that I haven't backlinked at all, and I think that I could move them up to page 1 without too much trouble, I just wonder if that would help me other SERP result at all.
Anyway, I'm very confused about why this is happening and I would really like some help with it. The only thing I can think of doing is starting a new website and just wait for the current website to stabilize. I know new websites (and this one is only about 2 and a half months old) won't maintain good serps long because google likes them at first because they are new and fresh content, and after its been seen for awhile it drops...but I guess I'm asking if it will come back eventually or at least move up from #10 spot. #10 spot is terrible for traffic and rankings, at least for this keyword.
Anyway, I hope someone can help me.
Any advice will help,
