Get site to page one

I created a site earlier this month and I managed to get it indexed soon after finishing it on august 7th. I showed up on the second page soon after that and I have been stuck on the second page ever since despite moving into 6th spot for a few hours 2 days after being indexed.

Does anyone have any idea how i can quickly get on to page 1. I have been posting my links on forums and making blog comments daily but nothing has really happened. I have written about 20 something articles and linked to my page. Is there something wrong and how long do you think i have to wait?

It really depends on who you're competing against.

There is no set rule without knowing if you're going up against massive authority sites like Wikipedia or mere hobbyist websites.

Keep building more links and try other forms of getting traffic like social media perhaps.

All I can tell you is that it will take time. Those backlinks that you're building will need to get raw traffic (i.e., visitors need to click on them and get taken to your site) in order for them to be indexed and counted by search engines. Your site is still " young" and you will see it's positions in the search engine results pages fluctuate. Just keep working on your SEO, you will see the results in due time. :)

SEO can take months or even over a year to be effective. If you are looking for a way to get there fast, you are in the wrong business. it takes a TON of work, time, and effort to build trust online, even with the search engines.

Cecille, are you sure that visitors need to click on your links to have them counted by the search engines? I have never heard this before. And if so, what is stopping you from doing it yourself to all the link you create?

They don't have to all be clicked on. However, Google can tell if links are getting clicks or not. Links that bring you direct traffic will do more for your rankings than links that never see any traffic. This is why getting high profile links ( such as web 2.0 sites and popular blogs) give you more benefit than mass submissions to article directories.

these links will bring you more traffic, and so Google will take notice and weigh them differently than links that don't give you any traffic at all.

I have pages that have less than 1/3 of the number of links as my competition, yet I outrank them because my links get me more direct traffic, and that traffic has a low bounce rate
