    I was ranked on 2nd page for my keyword after a week of white hat seo. I got lazy so i tried to just use Magic submitter towards my site and set a campaign to run for 10 days, 1 day later im on page 4 now.

    Little lesson learned: never aim a seo software to your money site if you have no idea what you're doing lol

    I don't think 1 day is long enough for your links to get indexed by google

    I was about to disagree with you until you add the "if you have no idea what you're doing" part. I couldn't imagine my SEO efforts without automated software, but yes you can cause some serious damage if you don't know what you're doing. When learning to use automated software it might be a good idea to practice on a "throw-away" site that you don't care if you it bombs completely or not.

    I'm firm believer in doing it yourself manually, before you throw it to automation. There are way too many things that could go wrong with automation.

    I wouldn't panic yet if it's a new site, maybe just a bit of a dance.

    The hardest part of SEO is patience, gets me almost every time.

    It could jump back up or even increase in ranks. Give it more time.

    if it is just 1 day i think it is just a dance, one day is just not enough to decide if it was a good thing or not.

    Lesson learned: Have a diverse back link profile.

    Don't jump to conclusions just yet. Google did not indexed your new content that quickly. This is just a shuffle, unless you are messing around with some auth links, you won't be seeing too many effects that quickly.
