    Hey!


    Before I started commenting with SB, I had like 100 backlinks, and i was in 24 position on google for local keyword. But now I have in webmasters 700 backlinks and Iam on the 28th positon. Other sites dont have that much backlinks...

    I would say that atleast 150links of 600 are ****************.

    What could cause that?

    could be sandboxed or bad links can do more harm than good sometimes just wait to see if its a sandbox it would be over soon.

    You could have 10,000 crap links and any site with 100 quality links could beat you

    You have to take into account that there are always other people trying to rank for the same term, so, they are simply optimizing their sites better than you are.

    Additionally, any time you add a large amount of links your site will have tendency to drop and then come back later on.

    Don't worry about it - Stop checking your rankings constantly and keep building links.

    If only 150 links out of 600 are do - follow, then you only have 150 working links. That is enough to shake things up in the serps though.

    I did something similar to you recently, though no quite as rapidly. I went down to around 20 for about a week, then came back.

    Don't worry, Google will respond to your linkbuilding efforts eventually. Focus on links without the nofollow attribute.
