I am stuck and have been for a long time in the middle of page 1 for 90% of my targeted keywords. I have done 90% of my own seo and have built some solid backlinks. I found an article about 6 months ago about the best rated SEO companies. So I called one of them and asked them if they could help.
They told me by looking at my links and everything, in theory I should have been ranked above my competition. They didn't know why I wasnt higher ranked. So I decided not to use them. I went and did more SEO. Got more good links etc. Even started a blog. Nothing. No movement in Google and yahoo and bing I am irrelevant.
So again, I turn to professionals. About a month ago, i researched a bit and decided I had found the top ranked company comparing many different articles etc. I called them and they went over my site with me. They told me they could not help me. My links were stronger than all my competition by a pretty decent margin and my problem wasnt links any longer but content.
So they directed me to a content writing company. I had them write the content and slapped it onto my pages. 2 months. NOTHING!!!! So I decided to do it myself again. I went to SEO MOZ and bought a seo kit. Again, Im higher ranked and have stronger links than my competition. Some of the links and rankings on SEO MOZ arent even close yet I am behind some sites. IN a few cased Ive been able to replicate every link some sites have yet still no dice.
So two SEO companies and SEO MOZ have basically told me I should be higher ranked but am not. Any ideas why Im getting the short end of stick ?
