    Using tools such as xrumer,scrapebox,amr,senuke etc how long is it taking you to get page 1 ranking in Google for low-medium competition (2-15k exact searches per month)

    usually a few weeks but depends on many things, the problem is staying on the first page

    same here except staying on the first page should not be a problem. continue to build links every day even when you get on the first page. never stop, just keep doing it or automate it. but yea, usually takes a few weeks. sometimes takes 1 or 2 months depending on competition.

    How long is a piece of string? And, what does that have to do with the price of tea in China?

    yea this depends on many variables. Ive had sites get to the first page in 2 days, and others never get there. It all depends on the competition

    like already said completely dependent on what you are ranking for. I agree a few weeks for something insignificant no one is after but quite longer if you have to push through healthy competition and even longer if they are really dug in.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    How fast means jack bananas... staying there is the name of the game.

    I can get a site on page one tomorrow but odds are it won't stay there, I'd rather take my time getting it there and having it stay there.

    I know for a shitty search term you can rank within hours but in opening post i did mention low-medium competition keywords which receive between 2-15k searches...im not looking for a definitive answer just experiences of other users to use as a benchmark to know that im on the right track.

    eg having begun a campaign for 2year old domain in beginning of January, targetting a 22k/month keyword I'm on page 2 after continously blasting SB & AMR links.

    on the other hand i have a brand new domain, exact keyword match, im 5weeks into link building and article marketing im still nowhere in rankings for a 5k/month keyword

    If the blasts are not direct you are heading in the right direction.

    Again though, getting there is one thing staying there is another and I haven't seen a bunch of SB blasts and AMR blasts to the site doing that long term.

    I think there is a place for them but I don't believe it is for direct linking.

    Agreed, id rather move on first page slowly but constantly. And you get a better chance sticking there.

    Recently Ive been working on 3 domains

    First domain got to 7th spot in like a week, which I was pretty happy with, not to much comp.

    Second domain took 2 weeks to get the 6th spot. Was VERY suprised how easily it was to get there, thought it would take a little more work.

    Third domain is on page 18 after close to a month. This one I thought would be the easiest to rank, hardly no comp, and yet it the worst ranking one

    BTW ive been backlinking these 3 sites the exact same way for each.
