Much like getting a new phone number and waiting for the phone books to print the new directory with the number listed, search engines need time to “publish” a new database that includes your site.
Due to our successful strategies for marketing your site, the dominant search engines, Google, Bing and Yahoo will normally pick up a site in a few months.
Your website may not rank highly at first, but can be found for your company name for instance. Ranking at the top of the results can take over a year depending on the search engine and sought after keywords. Google in particular performs strangely at times. We have seen sites ranking on the first page of the results as quickly as two months, only to have them push the site back to page three or four for the remainder of a year. Google also appears to favor older domains, seemingly penalizing newly registered domains.
