New Website – Our Most Asked Question

When we are designing a new website our most asked question is:

Can you get our new site on page 1 of Google and how long will it take?

Our answer to this question is obviously, “It depends,” because there are just too many variables to consider: website strength, competition, budget etc.

But in answer to how long it will take, we looked at a report made by Ahrefs.

how long to rank on google

This report took a number of factors into consideration:

  1. How old are the top-ranking pages?

    From their report the average Top 10 ranking page is 2+ years old and those that rank at position #1 are almost 3 years old (on average). In fact, only 22% of pages that currently rank in the Top 10 were created within 1 year.

  2. How long does it take for a page to rank in Google?

    Only 5.7% of all studied pages ranked in the Top 10 search results within 1 year for at least 1 keyword.

    Clearly, you can rank for low-volume keywords in a very short time, while the high-volume ones take almost a year to get into the Top 10.

    But again, don’t forget that this data only applies to 5.7% of “lucky” pages that ranked in the Top 10 within a year. The vast majority of pages don’t perform that well.

What does this all mean?

Did the study give a definite answer to “how long does it take to rank” question?

No.

But at least it’s shown that almost 95% of newly published pages don’t get to the Top 10 within a year.

And most of the “lucky” ones, which do manage to get there, do it in about 2–6 months.

New Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP)

AMP stands for Accelerated Mobile Pages, a Google-backed project intended as an open standard for any publisher to have pages load quickly on mobile devices.

Accelerated Mobile Pages are specially formatted web pages that enable Google Search to display content extremely fast, while ensuring that publishers control the way their content looks and feels.

Google will begin sending traffic to AMP pages in Google Search as early as late February, 2016. Twitter will begin to experiment with linking to AMP content provided by publishers early in 2016. – Richard Gingras, Head of News, Google 9 Dec 2015

DIY Websites Dropping

 

Wix, the popular low cost web site builder tool, seems to be having issues with their web sites being indexed in Google. It seems like many web sites powered by Wix have recently been dropping out of the Google index.

There are dozens of threads in the Google Webmaster Help forums talking about this. Some date back as far as two weeks ago.

Google’s John Mueller mentioned about it this morning (14th Oct) saying Google has investigated the issue and they are working on resolving it on the Google end.

If you require a website that you can control and see it rise on Google websearch then contact us today and we will see what we can do.

Twitter On Google Search

Tweets are now going straight into Google, so that they will show up as huge boxes in search results. This will have a significant impact on your exposure in google search results and we recommend that you have an up to date twitter account for your company.

The companies hope that the agreement will allow for real time updates to be fed into Google’s results, meaning that a search for a topic or hashtag will show new and trending updates alongside the usual lists of websites and news articles.

In a blog announcing the change, Google said that the update is “a great way to get real-time info when something is happening”. “And it’s another way for organisations and people on Twitter to reach a global audience at the most relevant moments,” wrote Ardan Arac, a Google senior project manager.

mOrsoft will soon be introducing new social media packages to allow you maximum exposure on the web.

Don’t Be Forgotten

From today Google is expanding their use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal.

“Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results.”

It would appear that from today that any site utilising responsive design, will in effect be positioning themselves to outperform those that have not adopted a mobile-friendly approach.
