    Hello guys,
    I am working on 2-3 seo projects for the last 4 months, daily i do off page activities for all the projects. Recently I also did a backlink audit and removed the bad links (pls note the site did not google penalty). But still the keywords are not ranking. I have also checked the competitors backlink which is very less as compared to my projects. Don't what is the problem? On page SEO of all the website is also okay. Can you guys help

    Have you taken into account age of the site, size of the site, quality of the content, freshness of the content when comparing to competitors?

    Thanks for the reply sarahk
    No i just checked the competitors backlinks. My site is 5 year old and the content is same from the beginning. So do you think changing content can do any good?

    Removing backlinks, without gaining any new links can not help you much. If you are sure, that everything in GWT says your site is fine, go for some fresh content/quality backlins

    Okay I know its risky to disavow links when GWT says your website is fine but I just removed some spammy links from the website. I think it won't affect me much. I am daily adding quality and relevant backlinks on my website. Do you think changing content of the whole website can help improve my website?

    Yes Rahul, changing content is very important.
    "Matt said you need to take a “fresh” look at your site and keep upgrading, tweaking, improving the site and the user experience.
    Otherwise, new sites that have a better user experience, may surpass you, as they should. In short, having an old domain doesn’t mean you will always keep the rankings you have today, tomorrow."

    Visit searchengineland, here you will get lots of information that Matt cutts pointed out about ranking.

    I can't think of a single field of endeavour where the information that was valid 5 years ago is still valid. I suspect Google thinks the same way.

    It is a eCommerce site that sells walk in baths and walk in showers. So y'all still think i need to re-frame the whole site's content a bit?

    No new product lines in all that time?
    No new finishes, attachments, resins, styles?
    Just a freshen up and revisit of the text might be all that is needed.

    These links are not very strong though. Try to focus on building links from strong pages. Build tier 2 links to your PDF's, Infographics, profiles etc.

    While doing off page I always make sure I get backlinks from high authority websites.

    You need to focus getting links from strong pages not just domains. If you build pdf link from high authority site it will not give you much power until you build links to it.

    You're right but I have noticed mostly inner pages don't have that much power as compared to the domain

    from observation, SEO nowadays, does not solely depend on the number of links. in fact it always has been quality over quantity. Quality in terms of the links that you are building and the quality of contents that the site is releasing.

    It's not problem in content links and bad links, go in Google webmaster tools and see under the "Link to your site", problem in past 2, 3 years Google's update on backlinks is a little slowler, (they clean very fast unsful sites, and for useful sites take times) and backlinks are under the action.

    Becouse today people make hundreds and hundreds sites in a 10 min.It' s impossible to take all .

    Someone say if your link grab a opurtunity to finds on some popular sites (Cnn, bbc, Bloomberg) they gona upear in 2 days, that's not true, you can get massive trafffic but you must wait for Google update and see your backlink.

    Yes GWT takes time to update the backlinks. I think its really easy to rank the website when its new but once the rankings are down its really difficult to bring it back up.
