About Ranking in Google

If someone asks how much does it take for my new website to rank in Google or to get Google 1st page ranking, usually the answer is it depends.

Yes, that is right. Ranking in Google depends on various factors, and in order to determine the time, you need to consider all of these factors such as competition, website strength, skills, budget, and etc. However, we are going to try and give you a little more detailed answer.



How Much it Takes for a New Website to Rank in Google.

The first thing we did, was establishing how old the current top-ranking pages are. We analyze more than 2 million random keywords and we pulled information on the Top 10 ranking web pages of each of these keywords. According to our research, the average top ranking page is approximately 2 years old. The websites that rank at the 1st position are approximately 3 years old. As a matter of fact, around 22% of the web pages are currently rank in the list of top 10 within 1 year.

The next thing we did is determining the percentage of web pages at each rank position. We took into consideration the web pages that are less than 1 year old.

So, to sum it all up, how long will it take for a new website to rank 1st in Google? In order to answer this question, we took into consideration 2 million pages that were noticed by Ahrefs crawler around 1 year ago. We analyzed the position history of each web page for the keywords the web page is ranked for which gave us this result.



How Much it Takes for to Rank in Google?

Around 5.7% of the web pages ranked in the list of top 10 search results (we are talking about the web pages within 1 year and at least 1 keyword). The web pages from websites with a high DR or domain rating performed much better when compared to the web pages from websites with a low domain rating. This is not a surprise as Ahref’s Domain Rating metric correlates with Google rankings. The Ahref’s Domain Rating metric actually determines the strength of a certain website and its backlink profile.

We considered this 5.7% as successful pages and analyzed how fast they got from a zero position to the list of top 10. Most of these web pages managed to accomplish that position between 60 and 180 days. So, you probably think that it takes about 2 to 6 months to rank 1st in Google or in Google’s top 10. However, this conclusion is not true.

You need to keep in mind that our information are based only on that 5.7% of web pages that were successful and lucky enough to rank. The other percent or that 95% did not make it to the top 10 within this time (from 2 to 6 months).

So, the conclusion is that only 5.7% of all newly published websites or domains will get to rank 1st in Google or to Google Top 10 list within a year. Only 0.3% of these pages will be able to rank in less than a year and by using high-volume keywords only.

Being in the Google top 10 in less than a year is a result of hard work, dedication, and a great SEO experience.
