    Hey...i made a research here but i cant find a clear answer so i would like your opinion from your experience

    How long does it take you to rank micro niche sites?

    I know it depends on competition and building backlinks but lets talk about average time

    Is one month too much time for 1st page or maybe more?

    Depends on keyword obviously but if you've chosen a keyword that is achievable within your skill set then 6 weeks for page 1 and 12 weeks for top 3 is my usual speed.

    These are medium competitive terms without EMD's.

    I usually start seeing movement in 3 - 5 days of starting the campaign. Not first page rankings, but positive movement.

    My MNS routine:
    First page within a week, then bounces back to page 4-6 by the 7th day (I only use EMD for micro niche sites)

    By day 30 the site is normally top5, and from there it seems to be more about me tweaking the on-page SEO as opposed to off site link building which I've always found kind of odd but whatever works to get top3+.

    I rank at least second page in one week. Whoever says six months has no good business sense. Sorry.

    Agreed. I typically gain first page rankings within a month or 2.

    I launched a new site a few weeks ago with 10 keyword pages and all are on first or second page right off the bat. I know you sometimes get higher rankings initially but mine have stuck. Homepage (EMD) is #9 with only on-page SEO. Low/Medium comp and reasonable search volume. Going to build a few more sites then start backlinking and I should have solid page 1 rankings pretty soon. Typical is 3-4 months for first page in medium-high competition niches with consistent effort.
