I recently launched a new site 3 months ago. It is very optimized for 3 specific keywords in a niche market. For the 3 keywords, I'm already ranked #1 - 5 in MSN, not too much in Yahoo and i'm in the Sandbox with my shovel bigtime. Recently, I'm seeing a PR (4) on the index and some main category pages, however nothing for most 2nd & 3rd tier pages. Interestingly, the PR is not showing up everytime. Also, I'm not ranked at all for any of the keywords that i am targeting in Google...

Is this normal? Looking at differnt DC's, some show an index of 300+ pages and others show only 50 or so? Has anybody else launched a new site in the middle of Big Daddy? I'm thinking that with this latest shake up, that I might have to put away my shovel here pretty soon...
