piatkow describes the kinds of expectations you ought to have, with the caveat that a lot depends on things like inbound link quality and appropriateness, how good your content is, and how well you've optimized and promoted your site.
Most links have been created through directories, some blog posts, and some article submissions - but directories have been the majority by a country mile. They are all placed very specifically for our product, with specific anchor text used.
How old is your site, btw... and, more to the point, how old or new are your backlinks? Is your content unique? Has Google crawled and indexed your main pages? How big is your site? Etc etc etc
The URL was bought/registered in Feb of this year - holding page went live in June and the main site live in July - back links have been created since June (end of) - so i guess all fairly young. Could this be causing a delay?
Content is all unique nothing taken from other sites an Google has indexed all main pages. Sit is not huge - about 17 pages at the moment - this is one thing from reading the forum that may be holding us back so we are now looking to build many more pages - using Yahoo site explorer and checking my competition they look to have between 200 & 300 pages. Is this a big thing?
as for page rank is concerned for non competitive searches I have seen pages from a new website rank in the top ten, for more generic and competitive terms once that page or home page of the new website received page rank then it started to rank well
So from this it seems you are saying that page rank at zero could hold us back? In theory when we get a PR of maybe 1 we might see movement? Have i understood you correctly?
Google has found about 130 links so far but there are many more that have been created.
Thank you all for your comments - as a newbie sometimes its like knocking your head against a wall!
