    Is it typical for a site to dance around the SERPS page when getting and losing comments with high PR? My site went from page 4 to page 2, back to 4, then page 1. All because I bought some comment posts on some sites that were PR 3-6? Is it typical that g00gle saw my backlink on the main page, then by the time new comments bumped it to the second page it wasnt relevant anymore? (Since the second page of comments has no PR)

    As thedorf noted, dancing has everything to do with your backlink profile being reevaluated to reflect the new links. Once Google has determined where your site should be, then all of their datacenters need to normalize your position. You may bounce around for a little while, but hopefully on page 1 you will finally rest. :)

    Blog comment can be useful if you have valuable post. However, we don't recommend it since most sites are moderated and it can consume more time. Deleted comments would cause negative link velocity and could decrease your rankings. This could be the reason why your site's ranking is dancing. There are other more effective backlinking techniques that can help you make your site rank higher in the SERPs including building high quality links from different authority domain - web 2.0, wiki, blog posts, video, document sharing, press release, etc.

    it's not just backlinks, it's your entire seo profile of the site. Meaning your on-page seo, off-page seo, social tractions...etc..

    This is applicable on autoapprove blog posts that are open for commenting. They can easily deleted by the webmaster of the blog. Watch out on these especially if they are do-follow.

    Sites often dance when google sees new backlinks.

    Google dance is just a normal part of SEO. No matter what you do there will always be that suspense and unpredictability of SEO. That's just the nature of the game.

    Don't worry, Google dance is normal, especially at the beginning when you start building your backlink portfolio.
