How Long Does It Take to See SEO Results?
SEO is a great strategy, but it takes a long time to develop.
Search engine optimization (SEO) is one of the best marketing strategies available to companies interested in online marketing. Through a combination of onsite tweaks, ongoing blog content, and link building with offsite blog posts, you should be able to increase your rankings in search engines and attract more traffic.
But there’s a weakness to this strategy; it takes time. Building your “trustworthiness” in Google’s eyes is a time-intensive process. So how long, exactly, does it take?
Your initial tactics won’t take much time to apply. Provided you’re working with an SEO expert in one form or another, you’ll be able to put together a list of strategically relevant keywords in less than a week. After that, you’ll be able to flesh out and improve your existing page in terms of technical SEO in another week or two.
These baseline tactics won’t take long, but also won’t have an immediately measurable impact on your rankings.
Onsite Content and Link Building
Most of your progress will come from your content marketing strategy. As you publish more onsite posts, you’ll optimize your site for more keywords and phrases. As you build more links pointed to your site, you’ll increase your domain authority. If you’re building links at a reasonable pace (which is recommended), your domain authority will increase slowly.
You can generally expect to start seeing a measurable increase in your ranking potential within a couple of months.
Variables to Consider
Of course, there are many variables that will influence how long it takes to see SEO progress. For example, the more competitive your industry is, the longer it will take to improve your rankings. The more you’re willing to pay for professional services, the faster you’ll be able to improve. There is a hard limit, however; no matter how limited your competition is or how much you pay, it’s hard to see much progress in the first few weeks of development.
