How long will it take to appear at the top of Google?
How do I get to the top of Google? is possibly one of the main questions I get asked when I’m involved with a web development project.
The time it takes for your website to appear on page 1 of Google depends on a number of factors. It depends on the search phrase people are using to find your website and the number of other websites that are also available for those search phrases.
Think carefully and have a ‘brain storming’ session on what you think your target visitors will be searching for these essentially will become the key phrases or search terms you will be basing your search engine optimisation on.
Nobody can truly say how long it will take for your website to appear at the top of search engine results pages (including people who actually work for Google), however there are a number of factors that can improve your chances.
Building your website on WordPress is a good start as WordPress has some great Search Engine Optimisation fundamentals built-in. There are also a number of brilliant plug-in’s available to take your SEO to the next level.
Creating unique and interesting content on a regular basis for your website is also critical to increase your visibility amongst search engines. Launching your website and then forgetting about it is a surefire way to get lost amongst the noise.
And last but not least submit your site to search engines, this is possibly one of the most important aspects that people forget to do
So In Summary
Getting the to the top of google is not something you can get instantly, it takes time a bit of patience and dedication. Ninja by Design is often more dedicated to the client’s websites than their own (we are working on it) but we often see results within a couple of weeks of a new website going live.
