    So I bought Scrapebox a few weeks ago and started slowly building backlinks for one of my sites that was on page #1 for one of it's keywords. More at the bottom of the first page, but it was making it's way up.

    Once the backlinks started getting indexed I immediately dropped back to page 3 and for about the past 2 weeks I've been very, very slowly making my way back up. Right now I'm about midway on the 2nd page. I know a fair amount about SEO so I'm just assuming this is the Google Dance, but is it normal for a site to drop when you start building backlinks?

    I know after the Google Dance you're technically supposed to come out stronger with better rankings, but about how long will the dance last? Few weeks? Few months?

    Thanks for all your help :D

    Alright great thanks! I know of the Google Dance, but surprisingly I've never really been victim to it. Maybe a little now and then, but it will usually revert in a matter of days.

    Glad to be reassured :D

    Thanks for that thread. I haven't seen it before, but I think it's funny that he spammed hundreds of thousands of blogs not related to the niche at all and it came back to be #1.
