Hi @daverider010

Backlink is not about quantity, it's about quality. I wager that a large chunk of your 1000+ backlinks are no-follow backlinks/ social-media backlinks or Directory backlinks - which have zero value in term of SEO. 

I ran your site on Aherfs and there are only 16 backlinks detected.

You might need to double-check your link profile. 

Let me know if my answer is of any help with a thumb up or like. Cheerio 😄

Hey @daverider010, It's not about the quantity of backlink you made, but it's all about how much quality backlink you made!!

Apart from backlinks, there are many factors which you need to keep in mind to rank your website!!!

I hope you get my answer!!

As so many before have mentioned, with backlinks what matters is the quality and not the quantity. Moreover, always make sure that the links used are do-follow.

Some others things you could try to improve your SEO visibility is adding a FAQ section to your page. With carefully chosen keywords, thorough answers and links to your own content can help out a lot and drive traffic to different parts of your website.

If you write more content, you've got a better chance at ranking on the front page of Google. The more you write, the more pages become indexed, and the more traffic you produce to your site. If you're writing five to ten posts a month, it's yet not enough.

Almost every aspect of your website has an effect on its SEO. One of the most important ranking factors to Google is your website’s authority in your industry and its reliability. In order to test these factors, Google surveys other websites and finds out which sites are linking to yours. When websites relevant to yours link to your site, it will help Google understand the content of your site, improving your ranking for your target topics and keywords. When your backlinks come from sites related to your industry, your ranking will be more positively impacted than links from random sites.
