The ideal place for your website to be on the search results would be on the first page because most people tend to ignore the results that are farther away from the first page.


Say you invest in a website to target your potential online customers – it then goes without saying that you would care about how soon your website will start showing up on google when your potential customers are online searching for the types of products or services that your business provides. By the conclusion of this brief article, I hope you will have gained the insight into how soon your new website will appear online as well as a few measures you can take to make sure your website appears among the top results.

When someone searches for something on Google or any other search engine, the results are not randomly fetched from the internet – they are fetched from stored results within the particular search engine. That is the reason why your website might appear on Google and not appear on other search engines and vice versa. For a search engine such as Google, Yahoo, or Bing to show your website in their results, they need to first detect and index them through a process known as web crawling. During web crawling, a search engine will process the content in your website and store all the links to your website in its index to be displayed in any future searches related to the content in your website.

Your new website appears in search results as soon as it has been crawled by the search engine that is displaying the results. That said, the question then becomes – how long does it take before a website is crawled? It depends. By default, search engine crawling will eventually be performed on your website although there are no guarantees about the timeframe. However, there are certain measures in your reach that might help you speed up the process such as manually submitting your website’s sitemap to the search engines for crawling.

Once your website has been crawled, it will appear in search results with related keywords but because there are thousands of possible results returned for every search, someone might need to click on multiple result pages before eventually spotting your website. The ideal place for your website to be on the search results would be on the first page because most people tend to ignore the results that are farther away from the first page. To achieve ranking on the first page, you need to optimize your website’s content through a process known as Search Engine Optimization – SEO. There is quite much to cover about this subject but it is my hope that this article has offered you a quick overview as you endeavor to give your business a solid online presence.
