Folks - I recently had a discussion with someone who wanted to rank a bunch of sites for clients real fast. He was talking in 30 or 35 days to get the client ranked. My explanation was along the lines of ranking real fast is not how I do SEO generally and would never recommend it. For the churn and burn crowd that is absolutely fine and that group probably ranks as fast or faster than a month or so. For long term rankings you do not want to skyrocket up in the rankings or there is a serious chance that you will drop to the earth like the apple that was the impetus for Sir Issac Newton's law of gravity. Be smart, rank slowly and rank for long term benefits if you are working for a client or if you just want long term benefits for own sites. You'll be glad you took your time for years to come.
