    Question for you guys, how normal is it for you to see a dip in rankings about 2-3 weeks after a linkwheel has given you a boost? I got a wheel made for me and saw some very nice boosts after about a week, but soon after began to see it fall, eventually losing about 50% of the gains.

    This usually happens when you build links but don't update content on your website. Whenever I build links for a website with static content I will see an increase in rank, but unless I continue to build links I will drop down again. The trick is to go after quality links and update content on your site regularly.

    Ah, that could be. Though we have actually updated in the last few days so hopefully you're right and this corrects itself.
