    .. to get your website on the first site of google ? I launched a german website 5 or 6 days ago , after 1 day the site was indexed and ranked on page 5. How long does it take for you to get your website on the first page of google for your keyword-phrase ?

    Sorry for the bad english.

    greets

    Its not about the length of time its about the relativity of your website to the searched keyword so if your sites called "plasmoidgames" if they search games it wont come up first because there are more popular other game sites but if they search p games its more likely to come up closer to the beggining.
    hope i helped

    thx for your answer.

    the relevancy of my website to the keywoard-phrase is very high. I used the exact phrase in the domain-name , website title and multiple times in the articles I wrote. Moreover i did some backlinking with a youtube video and blog-comments. I think my website should rank higher in google , the first top10 results for my keyword are ebay- or amazon-articles.

    well googles alot more popular than yahoo so you get more results and therefore your further down... when your doing your coding you have to change the document title to the domain name if it was http://www.plasmoidgames.com then put "Plasmoid Games" and google should find it
    my websites ranked first so that should help

    There are a lot of factors involved and no easy way to just say, "it will X amount of time". Certainly it depends on the niche and competition. My main client is in a competitive financial niche and it's a constant (yes constant) battle to get on page 1 (for the KW he wants). That is why many try for the long tail (or multiple long tails), usually much easier to break on page 1 for those.

    Surprised this wasn't mentioned but it depends on how much work you put into the SEO. If you do a lot of linkbuilding and site optimizing you'll reach the first page fairly quickly provided the first page isn't filled with SEO giants.
