    hi guys ,
    anyone experienced google "honeymoon" lately with new website . Apparently new websites tends to have good rankings in the first couple of days/weeks , then drop , this happened to one of my new websites thismorning so i was wondering if you guys could share your experience with us concerning this.
    Anyone saw this happen lately to one of his new websites ? If yes did they rank again after the drop ? and how long did the honeymoon period last ?
    Thanks

    yeah ive noticed this for sure. Recently I did an overhaul on my site and added a lot of new keyword rich content and within 2 days I was ranking 1-2 for my niche. I know this won't last but it is great while the times last. I should drop to 4-5 again within a few days.

    I say this one more time Google will bump a page if it thinks "it's now and wow," i.e. trending. However; without links it won't stay at the top very long.

    I feel like this is ESPECIALLY true if you are relying heavily upon social signals to rank your site. As soon as the signals cease/slow down, so does your ranking.

    From my experience social signals, a lot of content (more or less depending on the competition) on your website and good structure of your site can cause the "honeymoon effect". It will last one week or two, sometimes even 3-4 days.

    Ya it's garbage, there are two new sites with 6 crappy backlinks beating my client that has massive authority and of course he's asking me why this is happening. It's happen before recently and they drop off quick but it's annoying as fack.

    i have notice this since last year...
    if you build links in bulk, honeymoon will take effect...
    but if you build at a constant rate, then its ok..

    loan and insurance use this honeymoon effect to earn money for 2 weeks...

    I think it is depend on your niche.

    Some of my website get affected and some of my local businesses website does not get affected at all. I guess this affect does not effect local business who has listed on Google places.
