How long does it take before I start seeing traffic on my site?

I have just joined up to Google Analytics and I know a couple of people have been on my site today.  How long does it take to start seeing activity?  It is a new site so I am not expecting it to be busy but I just want to see that it is working.

Hi,
Thanks for this but it still is showing as no one has visited my site. I don't know if maybe I have set Google Analytics up wrong? I followed the instructions and copy and pasted the tracking script to each of my pages on my site. Is there anything else I should have done?
