I'm wondering if somebody could help me out. I'm kinda new to SEO. I've done a lot of research but can't seem to figure out what's wrong. I made a bunch of Web 2.0 backlinks recently. They're all done by hand with 100% unique nonspun content hand written for each site. They're all indexed but they don't seem to be counting as backlinks. They don't show up on when I search my URL or on webmaster tools/any other backlink finding tool. My website has been slowly dropping in ranking. It's been over a week now. Should I just give it more time? I've pinged the sites/RSS feeds and all that stuff. Like I said they're indexed but don't seem to be helping. I've made sure all the sites are do-follow as well. Thanks.
