What could be taking so long?

Threaded View
I know that Search Engine results and placements require time, during
the time from startup until now (2 months), I have read more pages and
tips on increasing page rank, placement and links than I care to
share. Just when I think I have read a good tip to try, another advice
column says something completely contradicting!!

I am asking you guys for help!! Am I doing something wrong here or do
I just require more time? My site is http://www.oldride.com , the site
has allot of great relevant content, I have links on other site which
webmasters have graciously placed on their sites (with good page
ranks), a yahoo directory listing and a "Pending" DMOZ listing.

Shall I wait for the Search Engines to do their deed or is the site
turning them away? Suggestions very welcome!!

I would say it is because it only appears to be optimized for useless
phrases or keywords.
It has the appearance of  a site someone has guaranteed a top ten
placement for, and then gone out and optimized for the easiest phrase going
Try to think of relevant target phrases, and optimize the page for those
rather than useless key phrases.

You say you have links from other sites but Google is telling me different.
What you need to do is get on at least one "quality"  PR (5) site and wait
for the
next PR update (not sure if this is "rolling" like the SERPS or not).

Your site is already in Google... Your just not showing any PR yet.
