It really depends on several factors. I will try to number them: Quality of your links, are they do-follow or non-follow? Number of links compared with your competitors and Domain and Page Authority. Check Ahrefs .com to obtain those metrics. Are you publishing content regularly? One of the most common mistakes is to publish content in batches. Create content regularly will increase your SERP. Do you have Sitemaps? Make you all your pages are indexed by Google. You can find out this in the Google Search Console. Niche you are working on. If it’s very competitive niche (health or money for example), you will need much more than a bit of linking. You will need a solid strategy to follow in order to increase your ranking a position in page 1.
