Most frequent SEO questions and answers
You must do a series of events to let search engines you are online. Once they are notified, they check if your on-page SEO is correct. Then other factors come into play such as keywords, site speed, backlinks, page titles, content, etc. If all these things are optimized then you have the chance to rank higher in search engines for keywords you would like to rank for.
Like most things, it depends. If your site is new and you’re in a saturated market, it could take 6 months. If your site has been around a while, it is constantly putting out information, users are staying on your site for a longer time, people are sharing your posts, etc., then you have a much better chance of ranking higher and beating your competition.
First you have to list with Google My Business. Then optimize it so all your citations, or references to your site, are the same. If all the settings have been added properly, you will have a much better chance of ranking in the top 3.
