    I know this question is relevant so lets ignore long tail, low competition
    keywords, and focus only on moderate to high competition keywords.

    Most video marketers know that low comp keywords can be ranked in a
    few weeks.

    It seems to me, if on page is good, backlinks are good, that it takes about
    2-3 months to rank a competitive video on first page.

    My last video was medium competition. It took 4 weeks to dance, 6 weeks
    to stablize, 8 weeks to hit #1 on Google.

    My most recent video is high competition. Its taken about 6 weeks to dance,
    I'm around week 8 and its just beginning to stick on the bottom of page 1.
    Will probably take about 10-12 weeks total to get it higher up on page 1
    (I don't think it will go any higher than pos 5 which I'm fine with).

    But does 2-3 months sound standard for moderate to high competition keywords?

    I'm curious what you're guys experience has been.

    Thanks - SB

    Depends on hiw much work you do on it
    you need a lot less quality backlinks
    so this alone will speed up ranking

    I already told you that Youtube video will not require 8 weeks to rank on Google, Now i am going to create a live experiment/journey thread to show everyone that you can rank any video on any keyword within 20 days [I am doing this and successfully achieved top 05 rankings]

    I've alway's seen my main niches on the first page of google in around 7-10 days. Keep in mind my video will also be the first result on YouTube which helps!

    All my videos rank within 7-10 days as well. But of course I have a custom tool I wrote to give my self as many youtube views as I Like. I also seo my videos and add them to blogger blogs. I also get back links for them. So who knows. Good Luck. :)
