How Long Will it Take To Get to Page 1?

We’d be lying if we said we could get you to Page 1 for your keyword tomorrow for an Organic Listing. The reality is that Google implemented several defenses to maintain quality standards for users, and this just isn’t possible. Google’s complex algorithm adjusts search results very slowly to prevent people from gaming their system.

So how long will it take to get to page 1 for your keyword(s)?

That depends on a number of factors including:

  • How old your domain is
  • If your site is professionally optimized
  • How many competitors you’re up against (Search Results)
  • How many back links you have if any
  • The quality of your back links
  • How old your back links are

Example Scenarios

Older Domain, Optimized with Backlinks
If you have an older domain (6 mo and older) and are already ranking in the 1st 2-7 pages, you’ve already broken the ice and have a better chance of ranking quicker. We can give you the little push you need to get your site over the edge. We can get positive results in as early as 1 month.

Older Domain
If you’re not found at all for your keyword, you may have some on site optimization issues that are harming you’re site from being indexed. We can fix this. You may not have any back links built to your site. Google is pretty much one big popularity contest, more so than high school, and back links are a vote for your reputation. Once your site is optimized, we can start building back links. We can get positive results in as early as 1 – 3 months.

New Domains
Brand new domains generally have to “wait” longer before they can rank for keywords. It takes 3 – 6 months on average before you can expect to see positive results.

How many results/competitors come up for your keyword is another factor. Are you up against 50,000 or 100,000,000? When the competition is 50,000 or under 3 million you can expect positive results within 1 to 3 months. If you’re competing against 10 million or more you’ll need to battle for a year or longer. Especially if you’re starting from scratch. Strating from scratch, we’ve gotten our clients on page 1 within a year up against 70 million+.

Need Quicker Results?

If need results right away, and your budget allows it, you can buy your way to the top. The solution is to go with a Google AdWords Pay Per Click Campaign. You can have a sponsored listing for the 1st spot in as early as 1 day.

While Google Adwords seems D.I.Y., we strongly advise having a professional manage your campaign. It’s very easy to lose your shirt if you don’t know exactly what you’re doing. We can help you manage your campaign and reach new customers effectively.
