Sorry I meant 80% nofollow. I'm a noob, so I spent over 3k on attorney based websites that allow blog post and directory listing. I placed over 80 blogs between 10 of these niche sites. Only to find out that they are nofollow. I'm not ranking much, i was 13th position for a low search volume keyword but every IM is going for that keyword, now I dropped to 60th position and it's been like that for a week. I might just be impatient.

So does this mean I have to build out nothing but dofollow, even if the DA/TF is not that great, as long as it's niche related? Sad thing is, all the blog post I had to pay using textbroker, 15/bucks an article. And those post are not ones to generate traffic to my site.

I've only been with this company for 3 months and 60% keywords are dropping everyday. I keep doing ahrefs report to see if someone is doing a GSA campaign on me, but nothing. I'm I being too impatient?

So far I use yext for local citations and have been thinking about just buying huffingtonpost, business.com links. But wouldnt that mean I'm trying to game google?

Are the articles any good? Do they rank for anything? If so then promote them and try to get traffic from those sites to yours. Uphill battle, I know, but everything is a battle.

OR you can walk away and try to get natural links to your sites.

Good luck!

Wow I remember you under my old SN that I forgot back in 2010. A true pleasure.

I think the articles are pretty interesting, but like any legal niche, it's the same "10 Things to do after an accident" type of blogs, which are all over the place. I try to come up with interesting topics like uber lawsuits. A few weeks ago I had a topic about the highest verdicts ever and it did pretty well on reddit and I did get traffic, but i didnt see any improvement or jump in keywords.

I guess as you say, just walk away and get natural links. So I will now try to create awesome blog topics for my own site blog to get some traffic and hopefully that will give me a boost.
