I'm starting to see signs that they may be returning to normal behavior but I won't be sure of that for a week or so.
I think you just need to be patient with Google.
In the meantime, you should pay some attention to BING. Regardless of what you may personally think of the search engine, Microsoft search receives an estimated 100 million visitors per month (according to Quantcast and Compete) and Microsoft's new marketing campaign will direct more attention to BING. Now is the time to see if you can capture some of that traffic.
Ignore all the market share reports as they are based on estimates of "number of queries performed", which is an obsolete metric in today's Web/search industry. Don't shoot yourself in the foot by assuming Google is the only search engine that matters (in the United States). That is far, far from true.

(I'd done some fairly major link building on a couple of newish sites, and this link building pushed them from bottom of page one or page two listings into a Top 3 position for several dozen keyword phrases each. Since mid-May they took a slight tumble back down the rankings to where they'd been pre-link building efforts. They're all starting to come back a bit this week, but are not yet all the way back. Presumably because not all of those new links have yet been rediscovered or not yet credited to the sites in question again. Yes it's all very speculative, but judging by my other older, more established sites that didn't see any movement at all during the rebuild I expect these new ones to eventually come back to the Top 3 level they'd achieved over the past few months. When the rebuild is complete.)
re: Bing. I've seen some of the TV commercials myself. Interesting how they're positioning themselves as a "Discovery" engine instead of a search engine. I'm not sure reality meets the expectation of the ads yet. In fact, as others have mentioned the Bing results in my various markets are pretty much right in line with what Live/MSN has shown for some time now.
Like you said though, it's not a bad idea to spend a little time making sure you rank well on the new Bing. They do get some traffic and the ads may have an effect. After all, none of the search engines are perfect. Based upon past experience with what MS has done in search before I highly suspect they're still placing more emphasis on on-page elements, or at least aren't as reliant on links and anchor text as G seems to always be.

When they do an index rebuild they have to pick a starting place. Usually that's a date that's months old.

If you're still not seeing a new site appear in the results, continue with your link building and if nothing changes in a couple of weeks ask for a site review here in the forums. You might have a technical issue that escaped your notice.

No , Its hosted in US but I don;t think it would make a lot of difference , Top 15 rankings in Google Canada and No where in 100 in Google US for same keyword
Posted 20 June 2009 - 08:51 AM
If so, have you had someone or several someone's who are US-based check the same phrases for you? Or set up your computer to connect through a US-based proxy IP?
The reason I ask is that Google doesn't only try to determine the geolocation of the site itself, but will also often try to deliver personalized results based upon the users location as well. Which can really throw things for a loop sometimes.

We are no where in Top 100 for a phrase in Google US for Which we are in top 15 in Google Canada
Also A SEO before me worked for this website is it possible that he Used Google Geo targeting Tool to Target only Google Canada ?
if that could be case can I undo this by submitting a sitemap again in Google ?
