My site has only been up for 1 week and I am number 4 on page 1 in google for my targeted keyword. I don't even have all of my content up yet, just basic pages, about 10 articles, some pics...not a whole lot, just some basic onsite SEO. I think I have maybe 5 backlinks? Is this just a fluke? How often does your rank in google change?
I'm a complete newb and was in total shock today when I googled my keyword phrase and there it was...my site. Holy cow.
I don't know how long that's gonna last but I did the happy dance anyway lol.
