    It's not a good idea to make link form web 2.0 websites and free blogs which can bring unnatural link warning from Google, so it's better to build natural and quality one way link for your website which will help your website to boost the ranking and page rank of your website for the link growth graph of your website you can use ahrefs.com it is very helpful to know about graph.

    Thank you for using Rank Tracker!

    It's common practice that just-launched websites rank high from the very beginning. Many webmasters observe this "newbie effect". Your initial high rankings were a bonus from Google. What you have now is the reality.

    That said, your drop in rankings shouldn't be related to wrong link building strategy.

    Just keep building links, add great content, and your rankings will steadily improve.

    Keep us posted on your progress and happy ranking!

      What I thought was weird was it would be #100 one day, then not even within top 1,000 the next day, then back to #150 spot or something. Is it normal to be so sporatic?

        Such fluctuations are quite normal for new websites. Time will pass, and rankings will become more stable.

        Well, it happens. Please give us your url and keyword(s) - maybe warriors will come up with more suggestions.

    Most likely your website has been penalized for onpage SEO problems and probably not offpage. Check your website for tag pages and duplicate content etc.

      What do you mean by tag pages?
