How Long Does It Take To Rank In Google? [Infographic]

How Long Does It Take To Rank In Google?

You simply need to know what to expect, right? It’s the dreaded question asked by many website developers. “How long does it take to rank in Google?”

The ranking is what it’s all about. Why have a website if you don’t have this goal?

But you probably know it’s easier said than done. Even your developer will try and avoid giving an answer because he or she doesn’t have an answer.

And we don’t have a clear answer for you either.

But The Website Group can offer you a better understanding. We joined forces with Ahrefs who gathered some information to compare websites’ performances. And when we say ‘some’ we mean a lot.

Ahrefs studied 2 million pages and 2 million keywords & reviewed their ranking performances. They used this data in complicated calculations, and the results are thought-provoking.

Why is this relevant to you? Will it help you jump to the top of Google’s rankings? No.

But knowledge empowers you to plan and stay motivated.

What Ahrefs found proves the importance of hard work. You’ll learn about realistic timelines for your new website’s ranking performance. You probably won’t rank within the first year. But guess what. That’s normal.

And then there’s luck.

No, we’re joking. Even websites which are lucky to rank fast are backed by hard work. Luck won’t get your website anywhere but dedication will. And that’s why it’s important to understand these statistics. If you don’t know what you’re up against you may lose enthusiasm along the way.

But we want you to keep going.

And our infographic makes it easy to interpret the facts via user-friendly graphics. They’re easy to understand and may inspire you for the next chapter of your online marketing.

You can’t plan accurately without knowing the truth. Read all about it!
