    Hello just wanted to ask if anybody else has come across something like this, but my web2.0 which was built very recently to help backlink my website for my specific keyword, well that web2.0 is higher in google then my actual website!! Has anybody comes across this issue to? Is it something to worry about?

    Well its cause your actual web site is not so good. Sometimes on long tail keywords, sites that you build your web 2.0 on like tubmlr, or squidoo get a bit more credit because their top level domain is powerful. Just keep building and don't worry about it.

    I have had it happen a few times. Build you another few web 2.0 site and work them just like you did the first one. I would also add a few more decent links to the main site as well. No reason to panic, all that link power will end up at your site.

    This is a good point, you need to make sure your on site seo is in good shape. Look your site over and make sure it is setup correctly.

    When you said it ranks higher than your main website - Is this for the same search-term you are using as the anchor on the web 2.0 site linking to your main site?

    btw if they are both on the first page . . its a blessing. . build them both up to 1 & 2 . . i mean does it really matter which is on top if they are both going to funnel you traffic?

    I am on the same boat, 3 of my 2.0 are ranking before me, and 1 below me, all on first page. But I am seeing my ranking move up slowly.

    Yeah , It's pretty natural , The Web2.0 Main site power is better than urz and google are giving a lot of credits to Authority Sites recently.

    Which means u are dominating the first page of google for that keyword :) . Well I guess this is just an amazing . It's all for ur benefit after all.

    Yes, 5 out of 10 are my page, 4 of them are my 2.0, although it would be nice to have my main site on top ;)
