27 Apr How long to be on first page of Google?
Time to get website on first page in Google?
I wish I knew the answer.“How long till my website ranks on top of Google? The common response to this question is obviously, “It depends,” because there are just too many variables to consider: website strength, competition, budget, skills, etc. But when you dig deeper and try going through the historical ranking data that we have now available and give you a slightly more quantifiable answer, something more concrete than simply, “It depends.”
What does it take to rank in Google
What does it take to rank in Google and how long do you have to wait before you hit one of the top positions? There is no magic formula for ranking a website in Google neither there is anyone that can tell you how long it will take to get to the first pages.
Google has repeatedly said that they are using more than 255 factors in their ranking algorithm but the most important factors that are also related with how long it takes to rank in Google are the following: Age of the domain – A website that is old and trusted is more likely to rank higher in Google search results than a newer website, provided that other factors remain equal. This does not mean that a new website cannot achieve good rankings but it simply means it will take more time. A domain is considered new when it is active (not parked) for less than 6 months. After the 6 month period you can start getting some serious traffic from search engines.
Factors affecting Google Rank
Google always has major updates periodically affecting their ranking algorithms. And In addition to their periodic major updates, Google also has a fresh crawl that is constantly causing small fluctuations in rankings. They also have a deep crawl that can run on a predictable cadence that indexes a much larger portion of the Internet. Then there is the calculation and propagation time to value every link, every page, and every website and then rank those against billions of search queries.
But with all these updates and crawls the final result is unpredictable and in short, no one knows how all of these factors affect each other and the overall formula for search rankings.
What you can do is look at a snapshot in time of what the current site looks like in comparison to a competitor’s site and identify areas that will likely improve their rankings over time. You can then apply a general timeframe for when we can expect to see results based off past experience. In addition, always keep adjusting the strategy to help enhance certain search signals to increase overall effectiveness. Plus keep updating websites with fresh content or blogs to give Google a chance to crawl your website with new data.
Also, If your website is seen as low quality or isn’t updated often, it can take longer to climb those search rankings. In addition, if your site has been penalized in the past, you must first determine the issue, fix it, and then submit a reconsideration request before you can begin to reestablish yourself in search.
SEO is important
SEO is important – On Page and Off page SEO play a very important role not only for ranking a new post or website but also on how long it will take to rank. A carefully designed SEO Campaign will also speed up the time needed for new pages or posts to rank in Google. Number of external references (links) – A new post/page that receives a number of natural links because it is important, useful and valuable will also climb the SERPS faster. How often you publish new content – The frequency you publish content affects the time needed to rank a new page in Google. If you have a steady schedule (i.e. 2-3 times per week) then most probably your content will get indexed almost immediately but in the cases that you don’t publish new content that often, it may take a day before search engines find out about it.
