I have a blog network of about 45 sites.
Each is on a unique A class IP.
The DA/PA of all these sites is 20+, and PR ranges from 0-5, but averages at about 2 or 3.
All of these sites are established and have been around a while. Many rank in the top ten in this niche.
I bought a domain Early august and started dropping links on the above network, ~5 per day, for about ~8 days.
On the 25th the site went from nowhere to Top 30 (page 2-3) for most of its terms.
However, the site has ceased to move up much since then.
It seems stagnant, and I have even sent more links at it (although I am running out). I have also gone in and added some image links to some of them, and tried to create lots of variations.
My question: Since this site hasn't moved much, is the party over from these links? Or will this site hop again?
My theory: I feel that this site needs more unqiue IP's pointing at it, and much more variation in anchor text, to really give it some good diversity.
After that it might need a few more strong links. I want to achieve this but I do not want to do it in a spammy fashion. Any suggestions on where to acquire good clean links for diversity?
I am just rather shocked this site isn't in top ten because its not a super difficult niche.
Please note, I do realize its only been about two weeks, but I just felt it was rocketing so fast and has now stalled, and even dropped a bit.
PS - maybe things are just stagnant because of that weird update that occurred on the 4th?
