I have a website with the exact keyword I want to rank for in the web address and last december ( so over 6 months ago ) with about 30 backlinks I was ranking in 10 th position of google for the keyword I am shooting for.
Over the last 6 months the number of my backlinks has increased ( I now have a bout 120 backlinks ) an all the backlinks are nicecly done, there is no error in the way they are done and I am still in 10 th position and I am not moving ( other than one or 2 spots here and there, I switch between 9 th and 11 th position.
My question : I contacted a well know website for backlinks and compared my backlinks the the website that rank in front of me and here is what I find it.
The websites that rank ahead of me don't have the anchor text like I do, don't have the keyword in the web address , don't have as many backlinks as me and rank ahead of me...
I am told that I don't have enough backlinks which I am 100 % sure can't be the case ( because i have another example of a website in the same situation )
I am also sure it is because google has had a major issues with their system over the last 6 months and hasn't done any update of anything !
Could someone confirm that because I am starting to go nuts !
