    How long does it take

    Hello. My question has tons of variables and no definate answer can be made, so I hope no one will reply with a "depends" answer. =)

    How long did it take you to get in the top ten results for big search engines like Google or Yahoo (using terms like "montana golfing" or "news in maine").

    How long had your site been up before you started SEO (if not while designing it, or a redesign).

    What were the major steps you took to getting the results? (Emailing tons of people for outgoing links, changing your HTML, etc)

    2 years worth of spamming..

    Seriously though, it took me around 1-2 years, I think it was partly because i had optimized keywords, and loads of backlinks.

    Wow, what did you do? Backlinks too? Or all out SEO, keyword optimization, meta tags, titles/alts, etc?
