How long does it take to rank on Google?
The simple answer to this is months. We generally tell our clients to not expect any SEO results until 6 – 8 months in.
Why does it take so long to rank on google? Google’s AI bots crawl through the whole internet to find every available web page. Google then indexes that page with everything they know about the page (topic, user behavior, content type, and updates). As a result, this process can take a few weeks to rank for even your own business name.
A question we get asked a lot is how long does it take to rank #1 on Google. There are a lot of factors that go into this answer and everyone’s situation is different. Studies have shown that on average it takes 3 years to rank #1. Only 5.7% of top-ranked websites took under 1 year to achieve their #1 ranking.
