    I am two months into my website journey and so far I have spent a fair penny on PBN links, backlinks, social signals and the likes but I still don't meet the top 100 in the search results.

    I know two months is very short so I was wondering what sort of length of time should I expect roughly.

    Sounds like your on page is an issue if you haven't broke the top 100. Regardless, it definitely is taking longer than ever before now to rank and probably for good reasons too.

    Medium keywords take 30-90 days, more like 90 days for a new site

    I can break the top 100 quickly, it's hitting page one that takes time. Hitting page one is hit and miss. You need to know when to cut a loser loose.

    I would allow at least 3 months but going heavy on backlinking before you even break into top 100 could have a negative impact. Keep exact anchors at below 5%.

    2 months still not in top 10? Gosh even in medium comp keywords for me I'd be at probs #20 spot. Serious keyword competition or some issues with on-page or link profile etc. possibilities are endless.

    2 Month is really not Long Time But its not also a Short Time to get in Top 100.

    Do not focus Only on Offpage SEO & Do the Proper Onpage SEO.

    Happened to me before. There could be two causes:
    1.you have many exact match anchor text backlinks. Try reducing them using 50 to 100 blog comments.
    2.your on-page keyword density is very high. Make sure it is around 0.5% to 0.75%.

    I think you need to work hard. If you'll work hard and harder for your site then, it'll be in top 10 after 1 month. But you need professional services for the optimization of your site.

    It depends on your strategy -- Usually takes not more than 4-5 months.

    It takes 3 months to rank keyword better on search engines.. Sometimes it takes more than 3 months. Just have patience and keep working on Link-Building process..

    Depends on what you define as medium competition, your site itself and the links. Simply not enough data to tell you what could be wrong, loads of possibilities, from "Just needs time" to "You seriousely fucked up".

    New domains usually take 3-4 weeks to start ranking somewhere. So I'd wait it out, at least a few more weeks before saying something isn't working (that's if your onsite is good).
