    So I created a site a few days back with EMD. I added one page(750 words) and contact us, terms of services page and did some on page SEO. Yesterday I added the domain to google console for crawling and got a ranking of 75 without any link building. So I decided to add some more pages to the site. I added another page with 1 and did internal linking among the pages. Today I noticed that the main page is out of SERPs and the Contact Us page is ranking 101. Should i be worried or this is just google dance?

    No, that's a Panda asskick, you have overdone your kw density. It usually takes some days, till panda went over your content. It is too much computing power to do it with indexing.

    I guess you should wait for sometime, SERP will get settle.
    If it is thrown out of top 100 positions, then have social signals but after couple of weeks.

    PS: Do keep an eye on GWT message section.

    okay thanks. should i keep adding content for a while? I have it hosted on WP. i have a static front page(add new page) and I am adding posts now from add new posts. No link building yet. why is contact page ranking? Btw i am thinking once I add few pages, I will ask google to recrawl the site.

    Don't trust yoast. Use a free tool which checks the whole html not just the body and for all keyword. Not just the phrase you are targeting.

    In my opinion, you got panda tagged, this is the reason people here a complaining their stuff ain't indexing. To get rid of such a spam tag means a bunch of work, you either abandon the domain or theoretically speaking keep it and link from there to competitors.

    just checked. the maximum KW density is 4.95% on a phrase of the full keyword. the max density on one word is 2% that word is not the focus keyword.

    That's the problem. I guess the Contact Us page is fine therefore it's still ranking. You could theorectically fix it by reducing the density but I highly doubt it will rank in the near future, as it's a new domain. And so it's most likely burned.

    Honestly, from what you told us so far, it completely feels like a google dance.
    The site is only a few days old at tops correct ?
    Also, you indexed it via "Fetch Google"
    Which also means, there isn't any backlinks at all since its a virgin domain.
    Ontop, no social signals, as you never mentioned that you did any.

    Which only really lead to, you are google dancing, as the KW doesn't seem too difficult at all & a good on-page SEO could land you into top 100s.

    So, i would just continue building your website.
    Rankings takes time, and also takes time for it to settle in aswell.

    It's not a penalty it's a demoter. It just means you are gonna fight a up hill battle.

    The mobile index is much less spammed, things work different there.

    I'd mentioned above already, it ain't ban/penalty.
    If it would be ban/penalized then none of your keywords would have ranked in top 100 :) Chill and keep calm.

    thanks for your replies. No link building no social signals. Just on page. I have removed the keyword from here and there. Lets see how it goes. How long should i wait before building social signals or links?

    There is no magic number, but, i would personally perfer a small number (1-5) web2.0, maybe after 2-3 weeks & build more when time passes
    Social signal probably a week + afterwards (however, no massive blast).

    Don't do that. Create a bunch of Web 2.0 (G,Twitter,Bloggers) link all of that stuff together and to your main site. Then create a profile on facebook and twitter. Put organization and persona schema on your website and declare them as yours. This way G might trust you. Then push them and it will drip down to your site.

    I am having the same issue with my website for a low competition keyword. Website is new and contact page is ranking for my main keyword. However my main page is ranking for my secondary keyword. I think it's better to wait for everything to settle as the website is new.
