How long does it take to rank in Google?

A common question always asked by newbie SEO’s. My answer is: It depends on the competitiveness of the keywords you target. e.g you target”example SEO keyword” on my experience it only takes a month maximum to ranking on Search Engines.

For me, if you’re passionate about your work, you will succeed. Things won’t always be smooth, but you’ll have the built-in motivation to keep working hard. Without passion, you’ll need a heap of luck.

On the other hand, In my opinion these are the things that prevent success:

  • people want a quick / easy solution; they don’t want to be told that success online often means hard work, but that doesn’t mean it has to be dull – it can be very interesting, but you need the passion in the first place
  • Don’t load pages with keywords or keyphrases. This is spam, and Google knows it.
  • Using Flash and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) – I consider this is the most important to remember. As you can see, search engines cannot index images and graphics, but with Flash, they cannot even properly index the text embedded in the flash. The text animated is of no use to the search engine. It is important to know that search engines as well as humans like simple and easy to follow webpages, and not a complex and difficult to navigate website.

Overall, I think success can seem like a puzzle, something mysterious or inexplicable, or a riddle or difficult problem if there’s a lack of passion. I’ve been there, and I ended up viewing success purely in monetary terms. Now I have work I enjoy greatly, and success is much more than just earning money, it’s coming up with new ideas, implementing them, seeing how people react, and of course being acknowledge on what I do.
