    I got some links from other websites in my niche and I wonder how long can it take Google to improve my rankings?

    If you got relevant links through good contents, then you can expect the improvements within couple of weeks but no body can give you a firm time frame. It depends on so many factors and the links is one part of them.

    Keep building links gradually and wait for G to make the changes in your ranking.

    Yeah Google takes couple of weeks to improve your rankings.
    Try to build quality backlinks instead of quantity backlinks.
    And try to give quality contents then only you can see the better results.

    The longest I have seen for a website that is 10 months or older is 22 days. For sites less than 10 months old you may not get credit for backlinks until your site is older. You can test for backlink credit by searching link:mydomain.com ... if nothing shows up when you know you have backlinks then you are still in the new website locker. In that case you just have to wait it out.

    The shortest I've seen for backlinks to effect rankings is 4 days.

    When I search for link:mydomain.com nothing is found, but I started this website in June 2015. Ahrefs shows that I have 25 referring domains and I also see some referring domains in my Google Search Console account. This website has around 70 visits from Google daily.

    you can search for:

    "mydomain.com" -site:mydomain.com

    This is the way of getting Google to let you know of links and citations they are aware of.

    It could also be that the links are devalued by Penguin 4 or that the domain may be toxic from a past life.

    Maybe also use wayback machine and see if it was used in spammy ways in the past. Finding the citations from above should give you clues if this is happening as well.

    There is no specific time for rank updates after any new backlink. I wait for at least 1 month to see any effect

    There are some instances that you might see some changes in your ranking at least after 10 weeks. However, there's no specific time to see a ranking improvement. It always depends on many factors. Just be patient and you will see

    The links need to settle down and it probably takes some weeks timing so be patient to get improvement. Also, you can focus on the quality backlinks only at any time!

    When I search for "mydomain.com" -site:mydomain.com it finds those my new links, but my rankings have not improved yet.

    The domains are not and were not toxic, they are all newly registered domains that already have some authority. I'm in the niche in which there is little spam.

    But I probably just need to wait more and be more patient, like the others in this thread suggest. Thanks guys for your replies. :)

    You can only see the changes in ranking after the articles get indexed, also make sure the links which you got were from trusted sites.

    It seems to be taking longer and longer to me - I think Google are deliberately adding in a time delay to try and hide what works and what doesn't - plus a lot of people will give up they don't see any results in the first few weeks.

    With services, you have to understand that it takes more effort to rank your site than just one service. You also have to give the service provider explicit instructions on where to send their links or whatever it is that's coming your way.

    It depends on the competition on the keywords you are targeting for your website. Generally you can be able to see your website in Good searches
    once your website is indexed by Google.
