    So today, while I went to work I let Scrapebox go for like 1k links. Not much, but not much is needed for me.

    Anyhow I was 11th almost on the first page of Google, but not I've dropped to 15th. It honestly feels like I'm doing something wrong. I have more backlinks than a lot of the people on 1st page, but I can't seem to get up there.

    My site is a week old, but I need reassurance I'm new to this, and am looking for someone expert to tell me everything is fine.

    Sorry for English

    yeah its called the google dance, well that i what most people say. I happens at the beggining when Googl is trying to determine where to place you. might take weeks or months until they determine.

    My site is 1-2 weeks old but domain is 6months old. I am in the same boat, some days 1 page other in the second

    Yes, what you are doing wrong is obsessing over daily position on Google. :)

    Seriously, there are many variables. We can only speculate on some of the reasons why sites might jump around.

    Keep adding fresh content related to your topic. This is a long-term game, not short term. Think of what you're doing is building a long-term asset.

    A week isn't enough to determine where you are at in the search results. I've seen a wide array of time frames in which you can start analyzing results, from 1 month to 6 months. You start to see your best results in the far future. I worked my ass off building links, authority, etc. for a site of mine and it didn't do much in the short term, but now the site runs on auto-pilot without me building any links and it gains a position on the first page every 1-2 months just because of the initial work I did.

    Its depends on what types of site you have. can you tell me what is you site? It helps sometimes to get more traffic but if your site is old then tell me how old it is?
