    Hey everyone I thought I would post this here,

    I was reading an article a poll of 782 SEO professionals that looked at how long it took them to rank. well it actually said how long it took them to achieve search engine optimization success and it didn't explain anymore what that meant but I would take that as achieving top three for a medium competition keyword.

    Looking at this I think it's kind of accurate for myself it would take me about 4 to 6 months for a medium competition keyword to get to anywhere within the top 10 some I may get lucky and get to the top three dependent on how much I focused on the specific keyword and went after the long tails.

    So I was wondering how long does it take everyone else to rank a medium comp keyword in the top 3, without parasites or massive GSA blasts something that would stick against the test of time?

    For local, depending upon competition we can do it in about two months or so.

    1-3 without gsa blasts or xrumer etc? I suppose with pbns in large ammounts its possible but even the best seo case studies I seen for terms have a minimum at 4, but hell your doing something right congrats.

    6-12 months on average I'd say. Not sure why everybody is crazy for "getting there fast", for me it's more about "staying there permanently". Sustainability and blackhat don't contradict each other.

    Depends on ur domain authority, wont take more than 2 months for ranking a med comp on a high quality domains.

    Good luck for ranking it on a brand new domain.

    4-13 months for the average SEO.

    It can be done quicker but there are lots of factors to be considered here.

    I can get it done in 1-3 months but won't rush with it simply because I like things "natural" and don't want to be caught unawares by Fred or Penguin refresh.
