No matter how many new links I add for the past 3 weeks my site is stuck at around #12 - #15 for my main kws. What's more as soon as i add more links i see a drop in SERPS and few days later pop back to where i used to be.

Any suggestions ?

    Links are not just instant gratification. They can take time
    have their effectiveness kick in.

    Your site may never move, due to competition
    and trustworthiness.

    Think long term. Keep adding content, links, etc.

    There is no guarantee in SEO.

    Patience is a virtue.

    What kind of links are you building?

    If they are low quality, your site will not improve in rankings
    Try to grab 4-5 high quality links instead of hundreds of low quality links. Remember, quality > quantity... But yeah, an example of you linkbuilding would be great to know what exactly are you doing wrong.

    It depends on the links you're building.

    If you're building nofollow blog comments then you'll be waiting A LONG time before you see any results.

    I've found that it doesn't take very long to see results if you build high quality links.

    What i did is this:

    Used GSA to build contextual links (article, social networks, wiki) with my main kws (10) as T1, T2 used gsa to build links to my T1 contextual.
    Bought some private blog network links (around 100) for my main kws.
    Joined FBN and posed 30 posts with links to my site.
    Used GSA again, this time 2 projects. 1 - social networks, web20, wikis, directory with 100 long tail anchors. 2nd project is the same platforms as 1st, but only naked urls and brand name as anchors.

    Number 1, it could be that the links you're building aren't powerful enough to push you up past your competitors. Number 2, links can take more than a month to get "acknowledged" by google. 3 weeks is nothing, we're playing the long game.

      acknowledged = indexed ? Most of my backlinks are indexed in Google.

        Indexing does not equal rank. It can take anywhere from 3-6 months. If you're are looking for instant gratification you are in the wrong field.

          I had been doing SEO 2-3 years ago, back in the days i just had to blast my site with many links and proper link profile and i was #1.

          The game has changed a bit I guess. Can You please explain more, why it takes 3-6 months ?

            2-3 years in technology is like dog years. It's always changing and there is too much to explain. The best I can do is point you to a few blogs to conduct your own research and maybe other can chime in.

              Nicely worded. With tech, there's a never ending learning curve. You never know as much as you think you know. Technology itself changes very rapidly, but that's because it's building on what's already there. That only means that for the people who are trying to follow and understand the technology, there's just that much more (complicated) info that you've fallen behind on. And as far as Google/search fits in, it seems many people are very impatient -- "it's been a week and I still don't see...". Quit hitting "refresh" every 10 minutes to see what's changed and instead get your well thought out long term plan in place and you'll see results. Over time.

    There's always a delay from when the backlinks are indexed and when they start affecting the serps. I don't know if it's a verifying script in the google algorithm or for some other reason, but there is a delay.

    Link indexing time depends on some factors. I suppose it's about the trustworthy of source, in the first place, or it's just my experience.

      Maybe wait for the next major Google update and see what happens. The next Penguin update is just around the corner according to Matt Cutts. Just be patient and hopefully you will see some major change whether up or down. Fingers crossed.

    Indexed links don't have any relation to G update.

    Seems like you are doing everything right but still it is not working. One major reason behind this may be the links are not that powerful or the niche is too competitive. And you are doing SEO for 2-3 years, so you should be knowing what exactly is the reason.

    Also make sure you are diversifying the anchor text of links, too much of anchor text concentration for a particular keyword is definitely not going to work now a days.
