[Revealed] How Long Does It Take For A New Blog Post To Appear On Google's First Page

Rank On First Page of Google Search

There is no magic formula for a website to rank first on Google and no one can tell you how long it will take to get into the first page. But based on experience, there are several factors that have an important role in ranking high on Google and these are what we will explain in this article.

Google Ranking Factors 

Google has repeatedly revealed that it uses more than 255 factors in its ranking algorithm but the most important factors also related to how long it takes to rank in Google are as follows:

Domain Age

An older, trusted website is more likely to rank higher in Google search results than a newer website. This doesn't mean that the new website can't achieve good rankings but it means that it will take longer.

A domain is considered new when it is active for less than 6 months. After 6 months you can start getting traffic from search engines.

Clean Domain

This is another factor that can help or drop your efforts to enter Google rankings. A clean domain is a website that is not subject to either manual or algorithmic penalties.

How do you know if your domain is clean? Here are two ways you can do this:

  • Log in to Google webmaster tools, click on a website to enter the dashboard and select "Manual Action" from the Search Traffic option. If you see the message "No manual webspam actions found" it means the website doesn't have any manual penalties. 
  • Apart from manually checking the algorithm penalty. The best way to do this is to log in to Google Analytics and head to the traffic sources report. Choose Google as the traffic source and set the date range from the beginning of the year. See the drastic changes in traffic and compare the date when this happened with the Google algorithm change history.
  • If there is a relationship between the date you lost traffic and the date Google made changes then this means your website is subject to a penalty and depends on the type of changes you can make to restore it.

If your domain is not clean then it's a waste of time trying to get it into Google rankings as the penalties won't allow it. The best way to proceed is to clear your domain or consider starting a new one.

Keyword Competition

There is stiff competition, especially for the most popular keywords, so you need to be selective in choosing the keywords you want to rank for.

If you choose popular keywords with the belief that this method will generate more traffic, chances are you will not get good results, unless you have a very strong and trusted website.

But what you have to do is target low-competition keywords until you rank highly for those keywords and then try the keywords that are popular.

Ranking high for low-competition keywords will get you traffic and links from other websites, and this slowly makes your website stronger and able to rank in Google for more important terms.

Content Type (News, Articles, Images, and More)

Another factor that affects the time it takes to rank on Google is the type of content. Breaking news will enter the rankings faster than stories that are not considered news.

For example, a story about a war episode in the Middle East might come out on top sooner than your story about a food allergy. Likewise, a recent image of a newborn British prince will enter the top rankings faster than the image you upload to accompany a new post.

Title Options

Having an SEO optimized title is more important than you think. SEO titles will help you rank faster than titles that are not optimized.

If you are a regular blogger or webmaster, and you have a new website without a strong author profile and only a few links to your website, even if you write the best content but choose the wrong title, you will still not rank at all.

The page title is very important especially for websites that are not that strong.

If you have a very strong website and profile, it is possible to rank for titles without optimization quickly, but that's not the case, you can be more selective in your choice of titles and get better results in less time.

Content Length

Content length has an effect on ranking. There is ample evidence that long articles are more likely to rank higher than short articles.

For the time it takes to rank, in-depth articles on a topic are more likely to rank higher than short articles on the same topic.

Quantity of Content on the Website

This is also related to the domain age described above. A post published on a website that already has a number of quality posts will be more likely to enter the rankings faster than an article published on a website that only has a few posts.

Original Content

Don't expect you to rank on Google or any other search engine with copied contents. This applies to posts and websites. If the website does not have original content, then even if you then publish original content after a while, it will still not make it into the rankings. You need to know the tricks of writing content to increase your site's ranking.

SEO is an Important Factor

On page and off page SEO have an important role not only to rank for new posts or websites but also for how long it takes to rank. A carefully designed campaign will also speed up the time it takes for a new page or post to rank on Google.

Number of External References (Links)

A new post or page that receives a number of natural links because it is considered important, useful, and valuable will climb the SERPs faster.

How Often Do You Publish Content

The frequency with which you publish content affects the time it takes for a new page to enter the Google ranking. If you have a stable schedule, say 2 to 3 times per week, then chances are that your content will be indexed faster.

But if you don't publish new content that often, it will take a day before the search engines find it. Remember, indexing doesn't mean ranking content, but it's the first step in the process.

How to Increase Google Ranking

In addition to the points described above, to achieve a better ranking on Google you can follow the following steps:

Be Patient!

Patience is perhaps the most important characteristic you need if you want to be successful in the online world. Search engines are governed by a complex ranking algorithm, they have a lot of data to manage, the competition is intense, and it takes time to convince them that you deserve to be at the top of their rankings.

Hire a Trusted SEO Agency

The internet is essential for any type of business and sometimes when you are not getting the results you want, it may be best to leave it up to an expert. Turning this task over to an SEO agency is the best thing you can do and it won't be as expensive as you think.

Forget Google For a While

Don't be obsessed with Google as this will make you get tired easily. Instead of checking your ranking stats every now and then, it's better you forget about Google for a while, while concentrating on finding other ways to increase traffic.

This will not only help you not to rely on Google but also vary your traffic sources if you want to build a solid online presence.

Take Advantage Of The Social Media Space 

While you are waiting for Google to find and recognize your good work, you can take advantage of social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to promote your blog.

Selection Of Blog Title Or Content To Rank Faster On Google

When choosing what to write on a blog (topic, article title, content, and so on), it's important to understand 2 basic concepts. First, content is the most important success factor for any website or blog, so in this section you should spend the most time.

Second, you have to realize that you are not alone and that you are not only creating good content but also competing with other websites that also create good content. Here's what you can do to minimize this competition.

Before starting to write your next blog post, ask yourself these questions:

  1. What will be the topic of my post? 
  2. Does my post answer questions and solve problems? 
  3. What have other people written on similar topics?
  4. How do I differentiate my content from existing posts and make it better?

After you have answered the above questions the next step is to determine the blog post title, write the post, publish it, and promote it.

Choosing a Blog Post Title

Blog post titles are important for 3 main reasons:

  • A good title will attract more readers and social media attention
  • A good title is important for SEO purposes
  • The blog title should help readers as well as search engines understand the content of the post. Google emphasizes the importance of page titles for SEO purposes so this is not something you should underestimate.

Some important points for you to remember:

  • You not only need to create great content but also have to choose your blog title carefully after doing keyword analysis using the keyword tool and competition analysis by searching for related terms on Google. 
  • By choosing a blog title with low competition you can increase your chances of being ranked higher. 
  • The first thing you do is select the blog topic, search for the title, then write the content.
  • After publishing content, make sure you promote the blog in the best possible way.
  • Include keywords in the blog post title, but don't overdo it.
  • Don't follow the above procedure for all of your blog posts. 
  • Choose which blog post first to optimize using the method above but also make sure you have non-optimized posts on your website or blog.

The list above is not 100 percent complete but it is sufficient if you want to save your time. 

Ranking high on Google is not a rocket science neither it's a walk in the park. If you are starting a website now then you will have to wait 3 to 4 months until you can see the results.

After 6 to 7 months and you are working in the right direction you can start getting more traffic from Google and other search engines.

All you have to do if all your efforts aren't paying off is not to give up and keep trying white hat techniques and sooner or later you'll get a portion of the Google traffic you deserve.
