While SEO helps to give a web site a solid foundation with increased ranking benefits in searches, there are no guarantees for high rankings. Google states: “No one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google.” https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/35291?hl=en

Google and other search engines give personalized search results that are contingent on the searcher’s past search history, if they are logged into the search engine, location, IP address, the device used and other factors. Therefore, different search results displayed could vary.
