    Recently a seo service was completed and I checked webmaster tools those links were crawled by google. So it started from 23 and heading to 31 now. Could this be a dance? Should I wait for a few days? The site is about 7 months old.

    It will be dancing about if you have just done some seo, that does not mean that this is the dance though. It could be anything but it's probably the case.

    Do SEO = expect dance
    Ask BHW if your site is dancing = HTF should we know

    Very common if you recently used a link building service unless you have being doing fairly consistent link velocity for the previous 3-4 months.

    Mine are doing the same thing. I'm consistently building links. One day its at 24 and the next its at 18, the next is 20 then the next is 30 and back to 18. Seems every day is different. Didn't know if "the dance" could be that subtle?

    If you are in a good niche don't forget that other site owners will be promoting their sites as well. You can't look at daily changes for your rankings in a vacuum, there are many factors affecting these changes. Backlinks will always be a major player in increasing your rankings but link diversity and link velocity are important subsets to sustained growth.

    It takes 2-5 weeks to see the full effects of a "link". What happens is Google trying to determine how relevant your links & site (page/post) against your competition. Things should settle within a month or so after links are indexed.

    Its a common problem. Google takes 3-4 weeks to solve this.

    Well it went and sort of just settled 10 spots back in 33 and 43. If its not dancing anymore should I be worried?

    I see something similar. Its probably a dance but you need not stop link building.
