well, in the last post we saw what is SEO and all its related things.
Now , Let’s see what it takes to rank a website or blog?
Although, It is not difficult to get your website to index and even rank on the search engines. However, getting your website to rank for specific keywords can be tricky. There are essentially 3 elements that a search engine considers when determining where to list a website on the SERP ( search engine results page): rank, authority, and relevance.
What is Rank ?
Rank is the position that your website physically falls in on the SERP when a specific search query is entered. If you are the first website in the organic section of the SERP (don‟t be confused by the paid ads at the very top), then your rank is 1. If your website is in the second position, your rank is 2, and so on. As discussed previously in How Search Engines Work, your rank is an indicator of how relevant and authoritative your website is in the eyes of the search engine, as it relates to the search query entered.
Relevance is a one of the most critical factors of SEO. The search engines are not only looking to see that you are using certain keywords, but they are also looking for clues to determine how relevant your content is to a specific search query. Besides actual text on your webpages, the search engines will review your website‟s structure, use of keywords in your URLs, page formatting (such as bolded text), and what keywords are in the headline of the webpage versus those in the body text.
How Long Does it take to Rank in Google ??
Software programs called “Googlebots” (also known as robots, or spiders) move or “crawl” through billions of webpages, collecting and cataloging information that is added to Google’s index of the web. For your webpage to reach Google’s index, the spiders must be able to crawl and read the information on your site.
Reaching the top of the search rankings will not happen overnight. According to several sources, the average time for websites to rank on Google is about three to six months.
How are Websites Ranked ?
Above factors are very important for a website to get rank in google search engine and other big search search engines like Bing,etc…
What can you do to achieve better rankings in Google?
This is the only question Bloggers ask. well, one can do many things to achieve that best rank for your blog or the website.Let’s start with them one by one :
* Keep updating with good quality original content : Don’t give up but keep trying. If you have not done anything that may get you into trouble (like buying links for example) then perseverance together with good quality work will get you results.
Hire a reliable SEO agency : The Internet is very important for all businesses and sometimes when you can’t get the results you want, maybe it’s better to leave it to the pros. Outsourcing to a trusted SEO firm is perhaps the best thing to do and it’s does not cost as much as you think.
Be patient : Patience is perhaps one the most important characteristics you need to have if you want to succeed online. Search engines are governed by complex ranking algorithms, they have BIG data to manage, competition is huge and it generally takes time to convince them that you deserve one of the top positions in their rankings.

Work on your social media presence : While waiting for Google to find and recognize your good work, you can turn to social media for more exposure and visibility.
Forget about Google for a while : Don’t be obsessed about Google because this will make you make mistakes. Instead of checking your ranking statistics many times per day what you can do is forget about Google for a while and concentrate on other ways to increase your traffic. This will not only help you be less dependent on Google but it will also diversify your traffic and income sources which is necessary if you want to build a solid online presence.
It takes time to get good rankings on Google. If you are starting a website now then you may have to wait for 3-4 months until you see your first visits from Google. After 6-7 months and provided that you are working on the right direction you can start getting more serious traffic from Google and the other search engines.
What you can do if things don’t look good in the first months, is not to give up but to keep trying using white hat techniques and sooner or later you will get the portion of Google traffic you deserve.
