Are you able to get my website on the first page of Google? If so how long will it take?

This is a natural first question people will ask and it’s a fair question. That will certainly be our goal and our intended end result although Google rankings can never be %100 guaranteed.  Getting to the top page of Google will usually take a lot of time and effort as there will be a lot of competition online. Remember many of the top sites in any search engine ranking may have been there for years so it won’t be as simple as simply pushing them aside.  Clients will start to see positive results fairly quickly but a typical time-frame could be 3-6 months (or longer) depending on the situation. No one job is the same as it pertains to SEO and will be a case to case basis.
