27. How long does it take to rank a website? on google?
Ans: Let me tell you the truth behind SEO ranking. SEO is now a difficult process as everyone wants to rank their business. For this reason, the search engine’s logarithm is now updated and spam free. As a result, ranking a site overnight is completely impossible. SEO is a gradual process now. We have to rank a site gradually day by day. If you ask for an estimate, it may take 6 to 12+ months to get a website ranked in search engines.
It also depends on the site’s keyword competition. If the keyword competition level is high, it will take much more time to get ranked. If the competition level is low, it will take less time to get ranked. Of course, we have to do white hat tasks for ranking a site. Black hat tasks are seriously harmful for a site. I always appreciate and do all the white hat methods to rank a website. Requesting you to give me a chance to display my talent by working on your project. I strongly believe that I am your best candidate and I assure you that I will take your project serious each and every day.
