I've nothing at all to prove what I'm going to say with. I'm just going to say that when I first started doing this writing thing here on Hubpages we were forever told it would take around 6 months for a page to start getting ranked where it should be, low or high, in the search engines. Well, that seemed to be true then, 4 years ago. Now? Oh now I think it takes longer....I think Google looks longer and harder at stuff now to determine where a thing should go into search engine results page results.
