If you start a new site from scratch and optimize it starting from onpage optimization up to offpage optimization it will take at least two months to see results.
Obviously there are some exceptions and the reasons are very difficult to identify sometimes. However such factors like the number of competition for your keywords and the type and quantity of links you get all effect how fast you get rankings.
Keep in mind that if you do get a ton of links fast and you get high rankings you need to keep getting a ton of links fast or you loose rankings. That is not very realistic. Getting links; which are the core of optimization slowly and steadily will allow your site to rank and keep its rankings if you keep getting links slowly and steadily even after your site is ranked on top.
If you can hire someone that will give you 1000 links every week you will probably rank faster than the rest. But then you need to keep getting 1000 every week to remain on top. (That’s why I said it is not realistic)
If you stop getting links, your rankings won't remain always on top. However does not mean you have to keep doing all the work. You may outsource and another advantage is that with your site ranked on top many webmasters will automatically contact you for a link exchange. But you need more links to get rankings than to maintain your site at top.
