My seo strategy:

xrumer posts
xrumer profiles
scrapebox comments
sponsored reviews

20 anchor texts

unique content

over 1 year old domain

Each time i do the above my sites move up a lot, then no matter how much links i add positions are "frozen" or move just +-5 places, sometimes my sites go down -100 to - 800 positions !!!

Any idea what i'm doing wrong ?

    You'll find 20 different answers from 20 different SEO guys on here on what you are or aren't doing wrong.

    In my opinion I would steer clear of xrumer/scrapebox comments. They just aren't worth it anymore with the Panda update. I would recommend purchasing an up-to-date SEO guide (you can find several in WSO section) that'll show you step-by-step on what you should be doing SEO wise now that the Panda update is in affect.

    To break it down I have been finding the following are important now:

    -Content is king, backlinks are important but if you don't have great content for your readers then thousands of backlinks won't help you. 500 word articles aren't the norm anymore, I would move more towards the 1,000 word range (most will say it doesn't matter).

    -Don't keyword stuff your content articles, it doesn't fool Google anymore

    -Link your website inner pages to other pages on your website.

    -Link to authority sites in your content articles (Wikipedia is a good one) twice. If you are using Wikipedia then just search for the related subject your article is about and link to that Wikipedia page within your article.

    -Don't litter your website with PPC or affiliate ads

    -Social bookmarks are much more powerful now then thousands of xrumer or scrapbox comments on unrelated blogs.

    -If you like comment backlinks then only comment on RELATED niche blogs

    Hope this helps some!
