How soon do I get to page 1 of Google? Will it be in the next month?
We understand that wanting to be the first in line is the goal. As a general rule, we recommend a six month period to see positive results in a campaign. How quickly you rank depends on over 200 metrics and how many are inherently present in your site from the time the project starts.
You can expect positive results every 6 months, however, significant traffic increases are dependent on your location, keywords, site’s authority and age, and other factors.
Inherently powerful websites and campaigns can see results in as quickly as 60 days. Entirely new websites may take up to 1 year to see a significant number of terms appear in the first page and the top 3 positions.
