    Hello! I'm new to SEO and I've been lurking here and learning for a few months! but I have a few questions/a problem and I hope you guys can help me out!

    so I built a website and I've been manually building High quality and related links.

    I've been building 4-8 links every 1-5 days, it's completely random because I don't want to get a penalty.

    and for the past few months I'd find 2-3 links indexed in google webmaster tools every few days.
    I kept building links like I normally do but noticed that for 2 weeks now no new links are being indexed.

    I think it all happened after I posted a comment in a blog that has a "latest comments" widgets on the side bar so I have about 26 nofollow links (side wide) coming from that one blog.

    I thought I'd do a test so I built a blogspot blog and wrote a small article and made a do-follow link to one of my backlinks in hopes to get it indexed by submitting the article to GWT and choosing to have the url and it's linked crawled, the backlink url got indexed and shows in the search results but the backlink from it still wont show on my GWT for that main website.

    any thoughts or ideas what could be causing this? is my website going to get a penalty soon?!

    should I keep building high quality links or stop for a while?

    Just remember that Google has to crawl and store a copy of the whole web in the Google cache in order to recalculate PageRank and to determine who links to who... It can take as long as 22 days for Google to revisit a single cached page... it can take longer to re-cache the whole web. Two weeks is not enough time to cause alarm... your link building is so small I would wager you have very little to be worried about.

    I haven't seen any new links on my exports since 9/29. Maybe has something to do with all the activity upgrading the algo.
