How long does it take for a blog to get ranked? As I went for a keyword phrase that only had 3 competition 6 days ago.

The common response to this question is obviously, “It depends,” because there are just too many variables to consider: website strength, competition, budget, skills, etc. The biggest factor of WHERE is age.

The “age” is calculated from the date when the crawlers first saw the page. But since Google's spiders crawl the web at a pretty staggering speed, the actual age of the page/post should be very close, if not identical, to your own records.

It can be done in 8 seconds, see one example below, in other words, it can be ranked instantly if you use Fetch.

That always depends on Google's mood sometimes it seems...lol! I've had a blog ranked the next day with nothing on it, as I hadn't started creating it yet, so it's like the ranked my domain name...lol, and other times, it took two to three weeks to get ranked!

Hey,

Short answer: Sometimes few minutes, sometimes a few weeks.

Depends on the age of your site, how consistent you are with posting, comments, internal linking, the content itself, etc.

There's many different variables, here's a resource from Jay that will help tremendously. Hope this helps
