How Long Does It Take to Rank in Google? (Infographic)

We all know getting a high ranking on Google doesn’t just happen overnight, but how long does it take? While many factors need to be taken into account, a comprehensive study from Ahrefs has brought us a bit closer to answering this burning question.

Ahrefs team kicked off their study by taking 2 million random keywords and pulling data on the Top 10 ranking pages for each of them. It turned out that the average Top 10 ranking page is 2+ years old, while those that rank at position No.1 are almost 3 years old.

The study that looked into the 2 million pages that were first seen by the Ahrefs crawler a year ago and tracked the position history of each page for any keyword it’s ranked for. Out of all the studied pages, only 5.7% ranked in the Top 10 search results within 1 year for at least 1 keyword. Ahrefs also found that pages from websites with a high Domain Rating (DR) performed way better than those with a low DR.

So how quickly did those 5.7% pages get to the top? When the Ahrefs team zoomed in on the pages in the Top 10, they discovered that the majority of the “lucky” 5.7% managed to achieve a top ranking position in approximately 61 to 182 days.

But what about the other 95% of newly published pages that don’t secure a spot in the Top 10 within a year? To find out what it really takes to get to the top, check out the infographic below by The Website Group!
