As you can probably see from my signature, I own a website dedicated to jogging and jogging benefits, with a focus anchor on "jogging benefits".
It's a relatively new site, the domain is about a month old. If I've done my keyword research correctly I should be able to reach #1 spot for my term.
I went ahead and done onpage optimization, which boosted me from ranking on 6th page of google to intitally 4th, then to 3rd.
And what now?
Now I build backlinks on sites such as ezinearticles, goarticles, sooperarticles, etc. I have about 10 backlinks from those sites.
I even contacted and managed to get a link from a PR2 site that is ranking #2 for my search term on google! (a link exchange)
I posted my homepage on social bookmarking sites (digg,reddit,yahoo,delicious) a couple of times.
But big G doesn't care! It even dropped me down 2-3 places on the 3rd page.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?
If someone with extra knowledge and experience would take 2-3minutes of his time to check out my situation and give me tips on what I'm doing wrong, I'd be very grateful!
My domain is in my signature.
I'm relatively new to IM (2 months) so a simplistic, newbie-language friendly approach would be appreciated
