    I'm new to SEO, but not new to the concepts and fundamentals. I did alot of research. Watched alot of videos for SEO. I've built a few pages long small website to target a niche and I've been trying to rank it but I've been seeming to fail everytime. I made this website 5 days ago and I still havn't seen any notable progress. I'll tell you everything I've done so far. The website is good looking, better than others I'd say. The only problem is I can't get it off the ground. I kno`w that I've monetized my website with Clickbank's products pretty neat but the problem is that I don't have any visitors. It's not even in the first 10 pages of google bing or etc. My main keyword which is a single word reaches search volume for 110,000 a month, with not much competition. i couldn't see anyone in the first page of google even having the keywords name in their url's at first. the rest of the subdomains I've created within the website target smaller niche's within my niche like 'how to do (niche name)' and is (niche name) real'. I havn't progressed in any of them. I came to realize that I had to build links so I started using a tumblr account I made a 2 years ago. It has 300 followers and counting and keep posting funny pictures with my websites link on it cloaked with an anchor text of my keyword and it does get reblogged and liked (around 2-3 reblogs and 4-5 likes per picture). Yesterday I also started posting on niche related forums. I basically went to 4 different forums and participated, and naturally interacted with the fellow members after putting my websites link in my signature. I also thanked alot of people and added a few as friends so there would be more 'juice' in my accounts linking back at my website (read about this somewhere). I've made sitemaps for google and bing and uploaded both of them. I used google webmaster and analytics to keep track of what's happening. My domain and all my sub domains have been indexed by google, I checked. But when I use a tool like google page rank checker it doesn't show any of my domain or sub domain other than one. I'm actually really confused at what I'm doing wrong and thinking about dropping the plan. I've tried SEO even two years before and also 2 and a half years before but I always failed in ranking my self. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have a feeling your keyword is more competitive than you think. Check what the top 10 competiton looks like for your keyword on google using a tool like Moz toolbar.

    Also, 5 days is not enough time to see anything significant SEO wise unless you just hit a homerun. 1 - 3 months is more of the norm.

    Keep promoting on social sites and be patient, adding more content to your site.

    I downloaded Mozbar. The first google result is a youtube video. The rest 6-7 websites are not specifically built for this niche. They are just articles on sites like sciencedump and spirittoday. Site's that have written articles on this subject but are not specifically made for this. The first page does not have a single website that is focusing on this subject. All of them are articles. The google keyword shows that there are 538,000 results for this keyword. The first website has Domain authority of 50 and Page authority of 33 with 13 links. The second website is DA=22 PA=23 Links=59, the third is DA=43 PA=21 Links=6.
    My website according to Mozbar, is showing Domain Authority of 7, with 0 Page Authority and 0 Links.
    I have two questions; Is this an okay competition, or something normal to aim at for me? The second question is I have tried creating so many backlinks using tumblr, forums and etc. Why are they not showing in Links or adding up to Page Authority. I'm really confused please enlighten me. Thank you.

    Edit: Also, not that the niche's name is my actual domain name, but with a '.us' suffix.
