Almost exactly a month ago I created a blogger blog with unique content and started a GSA campaign which I used basically every single backlink type, I posted to verified lists of mine. It took a few days after backlinking started but I seen positive movement pretty soon, and steady movement up for all the keywords. Till eventually I hit page 1 for every keyword, even yesterday I hit number one for 2 of the more important keywords. Then at some point last night everything dropped, not a single keyword is on page 1 now, most are like on page 7 or below now.
What really is confusing me is why, this is the same backlink strategy I have used on many other sites/bloggers and they are doing just fine still. This blogger has about 14k backlinks showing up in Ahrefs, it has nice anchor diversity. The funny thing is the main competitor of mine for these keywords (who also was using blogger) is still number 1 right now, now that I have dropped. But when I examine his blog in ahrefs, his stats are even more spam like then mine, and is diversity is not very good. He has 27k backlinks showing up in ahrefs right now also. I should note that this competitor is clearly using GSA SER to do his backlinking too, which really made me question then why my blog dropped but not his.
Could this all just be a dance, have I hit the spam filter, will my blog return to better than before ?
