Definitely one of the most common questions posed by clients when you’re building a new website

How long till my website/page ranks on top of Google?”

Ahrefs have answered that question, with a new study. However, the answer might disappoint you

Simple Answer:

It depends

  • Only 5.7% of all studied pages ranked in the Top 10 search results within 1 year for at least 1 keyword.
  • We then zoomed into this 5.7% of “lucky” pages to see how quickly they got from nowhere to the Top 10. The majority of them managed to achieve that in about 2-6 months.
  • But we did show that almost 95% of newly published pages don’t get to the Top 10 within a year.

In Summary:

The “lucky” 5.7%, are not lucky. They likely invested in SEO services to grow that ranking.

What areas did they likely focus on?

  1. On-page technical setup configuration
  2. Keyword Research and Optimization
  3. User experience and Conversion rate optimisation
  4. Backlink Acquisition
  5. Content Marketing strategy and execution
  6. Customer Review strategies

And the good news is.

You as a small business have access to all the the skills, tools, and know-how to do all those
