I have a PR 4 website which is almost 4 year old and many keywords are already ranked. But the keyword on which I have been working right now for 3 months not getting better rank only 3 - 4 position better but when I see next day it back to the old position it is happening since I have been working on this keyword. I am building link continuously on High PR forums, Blogs, Directories and Article Site. It is also well on-page optimized. I have also unique and quality content in the website. Please advice what can I do to get top position. All advices would be appreciated.

    First off I would make sure you are using an accurate way to check your website rankings. Just doing a google search will give you false results because your browser will show you sites you have visited in different rankings. I use market samurai to check my ranks.

    For the SEO If you are doing it all by hand and by yourself then this may be the problem. It also depends how much competition your keyword has. Maybe the site that is the next rank up is doing more SEO than you are and has more to show than your site does.

    You should outsource some SEO work or look into some software to help you build more links. Fiverr is great website to get lots of backlinks for only 5 bucks. Maybe have a couple different people do SEO for you on a weekly basis.

    Keep adding content and if your seo efforts aren't working then increase your efforts to out do your competition.

    I think you should give time to it and leave it for 2-5 days.let it stable and then you can come to the conclusion of its exact rank.

    As now after the panda update, google provide social media results more in the results it provided. So you should try to promote your content on social media. May be you have quality content on your site but it be unreachable by people due to mislead title. So social media is better place to promote your content and to get results through it. And then check ranking for your keyword, you will definitely get better results than before.

    It means you need to make more quality backlinks because if you have well ON page optimize website and also have unique and fresh content on it then you are lacking in link building only.So keep focus on link building and build more quality backlinks.You can analyze competitor backlinks as from where they are getting backlinks.
    Thanks

    Are you using your homepage for seo for all kwds?

    If all, that's wrong approach. Always use inner pages for new kwds, especially if your site is 4 years old and has some kwds already high ranked.

    This problem is caused due to the change of keyword of your site.It seems like your keyword is quite competitive so such kind of up-down occurs.You need to work hard for that keyword.
