I've been building a number of new micro niche sites, and doing white hat seo.
All manual good quality stuff.
I currently have a hand full of sites all ranking in the top 3 positions on yahoo and bing. The same sites did show up in Google around page 2-3 for a couple weeks and then disappeared. They are not even in the top 1000 results now.
Take into account the sites are only a couple months old. Plus the keywords I picked are all very low competition when it comes to the top ten results. (majority of sites pr0-2 with under 100 backlinks to page, and not targeting the keyword in h1, description and title)
Is this something that happens to others? Or is this just because the sites are new and need a lot more backlinking done to them. Its just strange to me that I can have a site ranking first on bing, but not even in the top 1000 results on Google!
