    I`m used to having my site ranked within hours after being indexed, mainly because I tend to focus on niches with really low competition. A couple of weeks ago I set ut a new site and I have posted 2 articles on there. Unique, off course, and I have 4-5 backlinks to the site. Nothing fancy, trying to make it look natural.

    Now, why are my article not showing up on Google (Only one of my 2 articles are indexed)? When I google the article title I get 2 hits, and none of them being my site. I think that`s strange. Even if I had no links at all, with that low number of hits for the article title my site should at least be shown in the results?

    I have noticed the same thing. With some of the changes that big G is making for the bigger niches I have seen some of my sites take up to a month to start showing up in ranking reports.

    Just keep doing what your doing it will show up.

    Ok. Good thing it`s happening to more of us, not just me. I`m unlucky enough as it is. About a month ago my main site lost ranking for all keywords. Voila! I lost about 10k USD a month income..
