    Hey guys,
    i have read a lot of posts about passing 6 month period to finally get ranked for a new website but i would still appreciate to know more (all) of your experience on this.

    I have a 7 month old website and basically my position hasn't improved since end of 3rd month. During that period i did a lot of work regards on-page, especially off-page SEO (using only white-hat technique). I can see in google search (also in GWT) that a lot of quality backlinks of mine are indexed but without influence to SERP. Like no juice has been passed. And have to say that i cant move forward over some competitors which made 0 work in off-page SEO and sitting there well-positioned just with many years old domain.

    I am trying to be patient in this but it is hard, non-sense when i make a benchmark and see that i am crushing some of my competitors in 95% of most important SEO factors and still far behind them.

    How hard is your competition?
    PS: Don't think that they have 0 off page work, they just hide it well from people like you.

    How many backlinks have you created? Are they from High authority sites? Ae they relevant to your niche?

    What about the content on your site? Do you have enough? Is it fresh and often updated?

    The market is with low to 0 competition. I checked their backlinks with ahrevs, majestic, moz...+ their citations...They have no advertisement on the net, they are basically not existing, running just website and Facebook with lot of likes.
    many of them don't have even GMB and still using public gmail.

    The niche is lets say a business service in a small city.

    I created tens of back links at business directories, guest articles mostly (only with DA30+ and only at relevant sites).
    We have content at least 3x bigger than they have, and updating 2-3 weekly. My competitors did last update months ago...

    I didn't say maybe an important thing. I am already on 1st page for the main KWs but first 2 positions are occupied by those competitors with provided info above.
    So it seems to me there is some kind of sandbox for being 1st position in google ?

    I would probably look at local citation, page speed & google maps (make sure NPA is correct)

    Keep building links, updating content on your website, building local citations with correct NAP (as suggested by TayaX), optimize load speed and time etc.

    You are on page 1 already with the work you have done, so you will get in the first 5 soon too, as the things you have done are already working, so keep this up and stay on track mate.

    Your competitor may or may not have backlinks, but they are already getting traffic and clicks from SERPs and are these domains aged as compared to yours? I guess they are with some metrics. Keep on building the right links you will soon see rankings and traffic come.

    Keep us updated about rankings in this thread! Good luck mate :).

    Local citations is, i think, the strongest part of my SEO, i have created over 60 structured citations with correct category on very limited field of use (as i run business in small city in Asia and cant have hundreds relevant citations as in USA) and NAP looks pretty much consistent.
    Top competitors don't have more than 5 citations and yes, their sites are aged about 4-5 years.

    I agree and understand that from business directories cant never have too much powerful backlinks, but fortunately my competitors don't have any strong backlinks either and if i rule at other factors why i shouldn't have a better ranking asking myself all the time.
    I read on this forum some interesting post, that a new websites have no credit for backlinks until they get old 6-10 months. Do you have any experience with this? This could be an explanation of my case, couldnt ?

    You have been reading too much shit off clueless kids that could not rank for fuck all. There is no six month waiting period.

    There' nothing like 6 months waiting period as the poster above me said. If you have better links, you can rank in one day too (difficult but not impossible)

    Don't listen to them OP. I just received an email from Google comfirming that they just removed my site from their sandbox, after exactly 180 days, and now my site is "ready to rank"
