    After reading tons of SEO stuff here, I took the plunge into a few local "ProfessionInCity.c0m" type of websites.
    I followed all the basic SEO rules - metatags, keyword analysis, etc.
    I got 2 sites about a week ago and made sure I had links to a bunch of my keyword-heavy internal pages.
    I also did a few fiverr gigs with social bookmarking and pyramid backlinks. (Names were well respected here on bhw -portron and crorxservice. )
    I guess as an SEO noob, I was curious when I should start looking for results on page 1 of g00gle?
    My keywords don't have much competition and are targeted. I know I shouldn't expect results right away, but then I'll read posts that people say they got to page 1 in a day! Is that BS?
    A more realistic timeframe seems to be a few weeks. Is that about right?
    When I do an exact search for my site, it comes up with the top 4 or 5 results. But a broad search shows nothing yet.
    These sites will be here for the long to haul so I'm trying to do everything whitehat.
    ANY tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!
    Lastly, is there a way to find out what page of G my website is actually on (without having to go page to page trying to find it?)

    Thanks all...

    to check your rank, I suggest you get yourself either traffic Travis, market samurai, or Seo PowerShot. All those programs are cracked on this forum so just search bar it.

    they don't really tell you what page you are on but you can roughly guess from your rank.

    You can wait, though 2 weeks is enough that the site indexed. What keywords do you use? It may cost you test your site using any tool? I like so far been using the free version semrush. I type a website and look up what needs the most profitable, and evaluate traffic

    Download Cuterank here : cuterank.net the demo version work only with one site, so work with it for ur primary site. It's pc/mac compatible. Good luck!

    You can also download the demo version of Market Samurai, it's A WONDERFUL TOOL! And it gives you more than ur rank, u can see also what does your competitor do (link building/.edu...) so you can try to do like them or better to over rank them.

    It depends on a lot of things

    How much competition there is, how old your site is, how good is your content, how fast your links get indexed, the type of links you built etc.

    I've seen page 1 literally within 2 hours from nothing. I've also seen page 1 5 months after the work was done.

    Such is the mystery of google!
