Hello everyone,

I have been making an article website with 50% product reviews and 50% info type articles. In the health and fitness niche but nothing medical. Still my artciles are not in 1st 5 pages. so How long for Google to rank sites/articles ?


Google is taking more time comparatively, after the new google update in November, Google is not indexing like before, so all the sites across the world are affected, according to John Mueller, this is a long term update, so you don't have to overdo SEO in panic, rest and relax, build your SEO strategies, build a quality link from GP, HARO, and social sharing, it will help you in ranking again.

social sharing is always the best option to rank your article, if your audience is not reaching your blog, your blog should reach your relevant audience, social media has been the best source of traffic, you can utilize this option to drive traffic to your article, and social gestures has always a good impact in google's eye. so it will help your ranking.

According to multiple sources, the typical time for websites to rank on Google through optimization (SEO) techniques is about three to 6 months.
That's right – jumping to the front of Google's results usually takes between 90-180 days, counting on the competitiveness of your industry and recognition of your keywords.

I've often been asked "how long does a new article take to rank in Google?" or "how long until my site reaches the first page of Google?". This has had many different answers, as there are many factors that affect SEO/ranking.
The biggest two that are brought up are 'link juice' and 'Age'. link juice, being if you have any on-site linking, how good is it? And age of your website. These two factors are generally the number 1 and 2 factors that affect ranking speed.


It seems to me that a lot depends on whether "Google likes your site or not." And then my pages of one site were indexed at a speed of 200 pages per day, and the second - 10-20.

Hello. With the question "How long for Google to rank sites/articles these days?", you didn't quite get it right. You understand that in addition to uniqueness, there are a lot of factors that Google pays attention to. Relinking and increasing activity through social networks has not been cancelled. If your article gains the required number of signals, then it gets into the top 100, and then there is an increase in mass. From my own experience, I can say that the first indexation takes place in 30-90 days, and the second one after 45 days.


Now, instead of writing content for specific keywords, the need to create content dedicated to specific web topics has become in the first place. The Google algorithm after the update interprets the sites and finds the results for users. To stay up-to-date and relevant, you need to create valuable content based on the principles of SEO optimization.

The Hummingbird update includes the following criteria:

The needs of the target audience, their path to purchase is in the first place.
Use additional tools to explore keywords and topics requested.
Write texts where the keyword is written in a natural way, including H1 and H2 tags. You can add keywords in the alt tags for images and in the meta description.
Periodically use semantically related keywords in web content.
Track metrics including traffic, engagement, and impact on conversions.
This will help you get an accurate picture of how well your article is reaching your audience and goals, allowing you to change and adjust your strategy in the future.
The Google algorithm is able to recognize the quality of the content. "Blind" keyword stuffing doesn't make sense. After the update, keywords became a confirmed negative ranking factor. Trying to manipulate search rankings by reusing words or phrases will only lead to low positions in Google search results.

Today's SERP (Search Engine Results Page or SERP) articles contain "natural" headlines that read easily and organically. Meta descriptions include text on a given topic. The Google Developer Guide released the article "Irrelevant Keywords". Here you can find official confirmation that Google lowers the ranking of pages filled with an unnecessary number of keywords.
The goal of Google when ranking a site is to provide the web user with relevant results based on indicators such as usefulness and unique content.

The Google algorithm when ranking a website relies on the structure of the text, the natural introduction of keywords into the text. You should not enter a set of identical keywords in the text, heading and subheadings, expecting high ratings.
To make a website top, it is not necessary to fill it with keywords. Given the situation, today Google is able to recognize text that is irrelevant to the user. Our advice to increase your chance of a high position in search is to create helpful content with organic keywords.
