|Question: How long before my site shows up in the search engines?
SEO & Search Engines
It will vary with each search engine and directory.
After a site is launched and submitted to the search engines, you can expect to wait up to three months for results. Thereafter, several other factors can increase your site's popularity over time.
Many of the smaller companies will index and list your site in 3 - 10 days. Google and Yahoo may take up to 90 days.
Beware of companies that tell you they can have your site showing up immediately. These are scams.
