    I've been using scrapebox and ultimate demon for about 2 months now, and I'm just now starting to see slight improvements in my rankings.

    What's the typical time frame for ranking a site to page 1? Obviosly it depends on keywords, etc. I'm just curious what your experiences are for small niche blogs.

    Depends upon many factors, such as the keyword, the site, the quantity/quality/diversity of backlinks etc.
    Moreover, penguin update changed the game so it might be hard to say.

    It can take a few days, or it can take a year.

    In my own experience I've never seen huge results in less than 1-2 months.

    Thanks. Even 5 years ago it usually took me a few months before I saw traffic. I'm seeing this is still the case, even with intense link building.

    Google's algo is even slower than before, but with some really good use of my bots I can get high traffic within one month on a fresh domain.
    It really depends on the niche's difficulty though, and if the strategy is long term or not.

    That being said with UD and scrapebox as my only tools, I wouldn't expect results for at least 6-8 months, if even then.

    Agreed

    Googles algo is way slower than before

    After 2 months seeing slight improvements is normal. Usually after 3 months I start seeing serious results. If the rankings start slowing down or stopping I suggest changing your strategy immediately. At this point Google is being very touchy and to much blackhat especially with those tools may only hurt you.

    Eggs meet basket. Diversify and bring more weapons to the table in the form of sites. Goog is using randomizers so to combat algo commonalities, but if you use more sites and follow the new guidelines you can win. The serps have the answers, albeit they aren't black and white.

    It usually takes a few months to take a site to the front line (with competition).

    I was just using SB the first month, and then realized I needed to mix it up, so I started using UD the other day. Do I need to diversify even more than that? What other tools do you use? I'm also using GSA Search Engine Ranker sometimes.

    If it is pure blackhat you should be seeing results in a very short period of time (less than a month).

    Whitehat/Greyhat type stuff (or high quality tier 1's with lots of blackhat to them) can often take a lot longer.
