Yes, what Tedster says! I had the exact same thing happen to me. I couldn't get a new page to appear in the serps for many months. It looked like there was some kind of penalty on it - possibly for reciprocal linking or too many affiliate product links. I updated and made some drastic changes to the page and then a few weeks after, GWT reported it at #1 or #2 But it was atleast a good 2 weeks before it finally showed up in the serps.
