This is insane. First of all, I have a lot of sites under my belt so this is kind of spectacular and has never happend to me. The story goes: Bought a new domain 2 hours ago (non emd - fresh with no history), had 3 awesome articles and a couple of images ready. Installed theme in WP, no plug-ins at all. I kicked back and relaxed for 2 hours (I have not done any backlinking at all, not even twitter or bookmarking, nothing!). Then I thought I would check up on my comeptition one more time, and there it was. One of the pages was ranking on the first page #8 for its main keyword. At first I got happy, then I got angry. Simply because WHY ON EARTH can't g o o g l e be more consistent in how it works. I would love to have this happen to me all of the time, but I guess sometimes you just get lucky... Has anyone else have had this happen to them? If so, feel free to share your story.
