    Hey guys,

    I launched my site over 20 days ago and it still isn't ranking for any of the keywords I'm pushing it for, link building has been done (I've used 2 BHW packages and done some of my own link building) - The site is ranked for the EMD (ofcourse) and I've never had a site before that doesn't come up for keywords within the first 1-2 weeks.. NEVER! and it's starting to bug the hell out of me.

    http://serpbook.com/serp/?viewkey=leg1g8d&auth=503cff2ebf4fb614c9431f7e579617de&client=1

    Above is my SERPBook link which tracks the main keywords I'm targetting, though I have around 50 total anchor texts that I've been building with.
    According to AHREFs - 68 Referring domains & 3.8k Backlinks.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    - DH

    Have a bit of patience...20 days is hardly a millenia

    Havent had a chance to really look at the site but sort out your robots.txt and sitemap.xml for a start .

    I need a sitemap yeh, unfortunately I can't find a plugin that autogenerates for the forum (as new posts/threads get added each day). I'll be adding the robots.txt soon as well :)

    20 days ago new site and 3.8k backlinks, WOW

    According to me, for pure ranking results you have to wait 30 to 45 days.

    your site is actually ranking in my serps.

    I have about 40 T1,
    approx 200 t2.
    use nake URL and long tail as anchor.

    I think it is enough for no competition keywords.

    If i was searching for any of those keywords, and your site showed up in the first 3 pages, i would think that google was doing a poor job.

    If i managed to get to your site, i would be out of there in less than 1 sec, as the post count is so low.

    Okay I just had a better look at your serpbook "keywords" and wow....you are going to struggle to rank for those keywords with any amount of time and budget

    League of legends, Minecraft ?? Its hard enough to rank against corporations without going up against mega passionate neckbeards with 20 hours a day spare to dedicate to gaming.

    To the other guys struggling to rank. Stop building links and web 2.0s. Just put your site up.optimise the on page seo and add content constantly. You dont need to check for rankings in the first month.

    I never get why people try to mess up their so new sites with so many links. It is like putting a burden of 100 kilos on a baby.

    Did you do keyword research? You're either going to have to rethink your strategy or rethink your keywords. Either way, you need some thinking.
