How Long Does it take to rank in Google?

Being SEO service provider few most common questions asked by customers are how long does it take to rank a page in different situations, how much to wait until your website is in top 10 in Google?

The answer is there is no definitive time period because it depends and it depends on not one, not two, nor three but many factors, many of them highly differ from each other depending on the industry you are operating in. In some cases it may take few months for others, it may take years.

But here are few tips to bring your page rank higher in Google search engine.

  • Make sure you meet the Requirements

You should know there is a basic set of requirements that you need to meet in order to rank your page higher in Google search engine.

The first is you should have a local business that has offices or business operations in the local area to get higher ranks in local search engine results. If you have a local business then being shown up higher in other geographical location will get no benefits to you but in local search engine results, it will have a higher impact on your sales.

It is also important that you have submitted your business information to right places on the internet, for example, your website, Google+ page. It is also important to note that Google allows some subcategories and doesn’t allow other for example ATM as bank branches, but on the other hand mail drop boxes, the kiosk can be added as information for local results.

You should also understand that few types of business are not allowed under certain circumstances.

Like

  • Businesses that are not operational or are under construction, they are not offering their services they cannot be listed.
  • Few types of real estate like vacation homes, model buildings, and places where no one lives.
  • If you have a rented business where you in partnership with someone else offering services then you cannot be listed. However, you can contact a business owner who is running the main business to get your information listed.

Now let’s have an idea how long on average it takes to have your web page rank in search engine with some basic level implementation of SEO strategies.

  • If it`s a new business, then It will take around 3 to 6 months SEO work to rank your page in local search results.
  • Already established business with moderate level SEO work can take at least 3 to 9 months however in some cases it may be as early as 1 to 2 months.
  • It will take at least 3 to 9 months for an old website with little or no SEO work to rank in search engine however in rare cases it may be ranked within 1 to 2 months.
  • For an existing website with little or no SEO work in the highly competitive category may take around 10 to 12 months to rank and in rare cases, it may take around 6 months.

Remember “SEO is not one-time thing” its continuous process. If you put reasonable resources in SEO and internet marketing, it will take over a year rank in local places.

Important Ranking Factors.

So we have learned how long it may take to the rank page in local search results in the previous section. But what are the important factors that play a major role in improving the chances of getting higher ranked web pages?

Let`s have a look

(I)Contact Information.

Your contact information is one of the most important factors; Google wants you to have up to date contact information on your Website and Google+ page. Keep in mind you should write same address at all the locations online, in the same format otherwise, Google will consider it as both are separate/different businesses.

(II) Opening Hours:

You must always put opening hours, but again keep it mind that you should always write same opening hours at different places online. If your opening hours changes, you can always make an announcement on your website however if you change it at a single location change it at other locations as well.

 (III) Your Business Category: – 

Google will require you to mention your business category at various places but always remember don’t choose a general category to be specific to your business niche. You can explore the list of different business that Google offers and you should choose a most relevant business category for you.

(IV)Your Location. 

Your position also plays an important role you should identify the accurate location as mentioned on your website and Google+ pages; you should not mention any other location for example if your location is15mins drive from city center then you should not mention it as the city center.

(v)Photograph: –

Although it’s optional, it is good to have a picture of your business on your website and Google + profile online. You should also get positive reviews your customers. In addition to all of ranking factor, you should ask your customers to give you positive reviews as it will also play an important role in driving more traffic to your website.

 Summary.

Getting your page ranked higher on Google search result may take few to many months and years depending on your SEO efforts, niche, and competition for that keywords.  You should first fulfill basic requirements and then follow best practices like mention correct name, address, location with your website and Google + page before starting your content marketing process. You can expect to have your page ranked in around a year in local search results.

Conclusion.

It can be concluded that there is no definitive time frame can be given to having your page ranked on local search results however on average it may take from 3 months up to 12 months to range your page in search engine.
