On a major FMCG site I was working on, it took well over a year and a half to rank it to the top 5 results for a keyword it really shouldn't have been allowed. Not saying this is something that applies to you, but gives you an idea of how difficult it can be.
And this is for a major brand with tons of publicity and a very high volume of natural links without me pursuing them at all. The sites that were outranking for that particular keyword were blogspot blogs, YouTube videos on how to make this product on your own at home etc. with not even 2% of the links this brand has.
Your progress is stunning, really hope it will stay there and is not something that will dilute in the next 10-20 days (seen that happen on a number of occasions).
