    It's been maybe 3 days or so since I built some links to a brand new site... still not showing in Google if i put mysite.com in google... but pages show if I just go site:mysite.com

    Is that bad? Still not ranking for anything including long tail kw's which I think should be ranking by now...

    It's not bad, 3 days means nothing when it comes to SEO and I am pretty sure the links you built are not even indexed (you can do something about it) yet. Give it some time and it will show up.

    That seems to be a HTML header misconfiguration.

    Disregards this, I thought I read something completely different. Lapsus.

    I don't think this is necessarily a bad thing, many webmasters have been redirecting non-www to the www version of their domain for years via 301 redirects, to avoid duplicate content issues with Google. If you are using a service such as Cloudflare or some SEO plugin, it may be already doing this.

    Thats common for a new website. And you shouldn't start backlinking immediately.

    This is just ordinary way of how things work, you shouldn't be worried

    Ok; I'll wait... I just built very few links.. just a few relevant manual comments, manual bookmarks at hg sites and one article so far... and just a few social media links to get it indexed. Nothing major.

    Thought it was weird cause with my last site which went up around Christmas it was ranking for longer tail kw's like 2 days after

    The keywords you ranked your previous site for could be easier.

    From my 4 years of experience I can tell you that google is very random - one site could appear and start ranking during week one and other almost identical website (with almost identical backlink profile) could be stuck below position 100 for 5 weeks. You have to be patient. Just don't stop building quality links and adding content consistently.

    If results show up under a search with the site: operator, it means that Google has indexed your website.

    I would focus on SEO basics first. Making sure your on-page SEO is perfect. It takes time to rank and if you're website content is old and stagnant, the crawlbot will not come that often
