    So a few weeks back I created an article on a web2.0 type site, I was targeting 5 main keywords, mostly lower competition but one keyword in particular is pretty big 35k monthly searches. But anyway to make a short story even shorter, in this short period of time I got all the keywords to number 1 on Google (like really quick). So after this I got really happy, and thought I finally had a nice little SEO strategy going, so of course I went to replicate this, and I wanted to do everything as close as possible to see If this was really working. So I even picked a topic and keywords that are basically identical like really close trust me (I can't say exactly what they are), and actually this new webpage's keywords are quite a bit lower in competition and traffic, so I figured if I SEO all the same with the same backlinks and same amount of content these keywords should get to number 1 in even a shorter period or at least similar, well it has not happened yet. Actually out of these 5 keywords only one last I checked was in top 100 of Google, like on the second day after I created this page and started doing my SEO all the keywords were on page 2 of Google, so I thought things looked to be headed as they should, but then a day or two later they all dropped.

    Now I know this has not been a very long period of time, and things could just be dancing, but I thought I kept the test so similar in every way that there should not be much deviation from that first webpage that ranked so quick and well for me. So my question is, am I just getting worried to early? or can this type of thing happen in SEO for no reason, like you do everything right but for whatever reason the Google Gods do not favor this page ? I know I have been told from "SEO Gurus" that actually even they only successfully rank about 1/3 of their projects even though they follow the same strategy. Idk maybe I'm jumping to conclusions here >.<
