In episode 212 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked how long it takes for a website to rank for its main keyword in SERPs and local 3-pack.

The exact question was:

2. After several SERP pages (8 and counting), I still cannot find the client's website for the main keyword. I realize this is not much time, but when can I expect to see them start to appear in search results for this keyword? Also, I'm not seeing a local 3 pack box appear (local real estate niche) Why would that be?
