Am I being paranoid or should I be worried?

    My amazon affiliate website is fairly new ( two weeks) I've been publishing articles that are ranking very low competition long tail keywords. The second day my website was created I was on the 4th page for one of these said keywords, I decided to mess around with Google search console because I figured instead of targeting global I'd target USA as that's my primary goal, get sales from USA. well in my global search my website dropped off the map. so I used moz bar to check my usa search and see if I was near the first page, I was on page 3, this lasted about two days and my website disappeared from Google search results. I signed up to what'smyserp and for every article I published I'm not ranking in the top 300 (global) I can't check my USA serp with their tool as it's not an option. Is there a tool out there that will allow me to check my usa serp that's similar to what'smyserp or does this matter? Should I just uncheck the US Geo targeting and start from scratch or leave it be?

    I feel like I'm freaking out over nothing but I don't want to fuck over my seo by staying geo targeted for the USA.

    Your site is fairly new as you said it. I've seen this happening lately with my sites: they just get indexed then get de-indexed back and forth for few days until it settles.

    If your content is quality & good, just keep doing what you do and it will come back to it's legitimate position.

    Two week old site??? Relax man. Expect heavy fluctuations and even the occasional disappearance until your site is 6 months to a year old, especially during updates.

    could you suggest a tool that would be able to check my usa serp? I feel like checking my global Serp would be pointless as I'm geo targeted for the USA
