Once you have your website optimised and published online. One of the important questions to ask is when will you see improvements in your site rankings or how long will it take for your website to appear on search results?
First, there are two things we need to keep in mind when it comes to SEO.
SEO is a slow and gradual success. Many website owners make the same mistake that they will get to the top search engine result page after one instance of optimisation. But, SEO needs more than that. It takes a lot of time and effort. If you’re looking for the fastest route in results. It could take a toll on your website rankings and later could affect your online business profile. As Google has its own algorithm in knowing a good SEO content and a bad SEO content. Seeing improvements in your rankings are usually between 3 and 6 months if you are optimising your website.
You are never done with SEO. There are no shortcuts in SEO. The key is to create a strategy, implement it and analyse the results that you get if it works or if you need to make changes. If you are not seeing improvements in your site rankings. You might have to get back to the planning stage and make changes on your optimisation. You also have to take into consideration the changes in people’s search and Google’s algorithm. That the keywords or URL you are using now might not be relevant tomorrow. Eventually, you need to revisit and make adjustments in your strategy and action plans to achieve your goals.
