When we’re utilizing Search Engine Optimization (SEO), we’re focusing ourselves to optimize 1-3 compatible keywords that define specific website.  With SEO, we can’t guarantee precisely the amount of time that a website can be on the first page of Search Engines. Why? Well, there are so many reasons and some of them are:

  • Search Engines like Google always changes its algorithm which means SEO must adjust to the new algorithm.
  • Some changing (major or minor) in the website’s scripting especially home page (the first page of your website) can restart the SEO process.
  • The competitive situation among your competitors. If the competitors are strong, the SEO will need more time.


Even though SEO can not guarantee you the specific time but they can give you a rough estimate time. Here is the rough estimate time:

  • 1 month

You apply Meta tag that is consisted of the keywords. Search engines should start to index and read your website within one month.

  • 2-5 months

Search Engine will index remaining pages and determine a crawl schedule to your website. This is important time; you should add new, fresh and unique content regularly so Search Engine can adjust with it.

  • 6-11 months

Most of the time, all pages of your website should be completely indexed in the end of sixth or seventh month. The backlinks from outside also has begun to be counted. The keywords can be found in 1st – 10th page of Search Engines result.

  • 12 – 24 months

The keywords will climb up slowly except Search Engines decide to change its algorithm. The keywords will have stable ranks and your traffic will increase slowly. If there is changing algorithm, SEO will adjust it with new technique so the keywords can start to climb up again.
