Actually, for most web pages you are ranked on the first page of search results the moment your page is indexed. The only problem is that most keywords that new page ranks for are low or no competition keywords that have little or no search volume.
The more competitive the keyword, the more time and effort it will take to get that same page to rank near the top of search results.
So, to answer your question, as long as those services are getting your new page indexed they are meeting the absolute minimum standard as stated in your OP. Not that it is worth much of anything, it is keywords of high commercial value that take time, effort and/or money. Don’t be fooled by a cleverly deceptive claim, that is technically true, but an utterly insignificant accomplishment.
