    i left my anchor text links on around 250 profiles and waited 3 days to check if my site moved up in serps and it moved by about 100 spots but with the amount of competition i should have moved wayyy more because most of the profile links were pr6-pr9. Also still not in the top1000 for a keyword which has less then 35k competing pages. This is pretty wierd.

    You have to wait more than 3 days, it takes time to Google to find your links, index them and decide what spot you belong, while making your website dancing.

    Check it out in 2/3 weeks.

    This is not weird at all, it's absolutely normal.

    Scrapebox.

    If you will use profile as your main link building you should build a indexing network using web 2.0 or self hosted wordpress blogs.

    90% of your profiles will not index,so this is a number game.

    In my sites i need 1k-2k links to see moviment in the serps.

    i made rss feeds and pinged them a bunch of times using rss submit, pingler, and pingomatic


    if its gonna take 2-3 weeks then howcome for my other 2 keywords i moved from around the 250 spot to 60 within 5 days but the keyword that has less then 35k competition is still not in top1000

    You can also use SB to check to see if they are still alive and to see if your link is there (think the addon is called link checker).

    But still it does just take time unfortunately!

    Maybe you should look in "link energizing " to force G to find them

    Edit: as lewi said there is a tool to check if the link exists on the profiles or if they have bin removed. SB link checker is a free tool.
    Good to sort out the bad/removed links if you wanna energize them.

    Do a search for the username you used for your links in quotes to see how many are actually indexed. If you did not use something unique next time you should do so.

    Also it can take awhile before you get the full benefit of your links even though Google has found them. Google seems to be giving links more weight as they age so that those brand new links will not be worth as much the first month after they are indexed.

    Each keyword is different, some will move up easy some not so much. Some are easy to get on the first page but real difficult to get in the top 5. You really can not look at what one does and relate it to your other keywords.

    The number of competing pages really means nothing at all. What you need to do is look at the site profiles of the sites that you want to beat. Check out the #10 site for the keyword you are targeting, if you want to get on the first page that is really the only thing that matters. How many links does he have? How many of the are high PR links? How old are his links? etc. That is what matters, can you beat the site that you need to beat. The rest of those competing pages do not matter in the least the only thing that matters is can you beat that site to get on the first page.

    i checked my backlinks and see a couple have been indexed out of the 250 or so i made. Does this mean google saw all of them and only indexed a few (i made rss feed and pinged it) or does it mean it just indexed a few and will continue to index the rest within the next few weeks?

    Volund,

    This is a very good point. People get so caught up in the fever of #1 they forget the first step is TO BE on the first page.
    If you are there, there will be already some level of recognition and based on the traffic that specific keyword has, will bring you
    some traffic. Many get discouraged by the strength of the top 3 competitors and leave the niche without taking the time to analyze
    the lower ranked sites.

    Especially if it's a hard keyword to rank for you need to focus on being on the first page...then you take from there.

    Actually the only thing you know is that Google has only indexed a couple of your back links. Anything else is just a guess. You have no way of of knowing what Google has seen or what they will do in the future. There is no way of knowing either way.

    Now chances are more of them will be indexed but you have no way of knowing how many or when that will happen. What you need to do is keep adding more links and them come back to those in a couple of weeks and see what you have. At that point you can take the ones that have not been indexed and try bookmarking them to get them indexed.
