This is one of the most controversial questions I will answer: It takes forever!
Seo it’s not something that you just make it one time and you are over with. It’s a work in progress, it’s a constant growth that you will benefit as long as you keep doing it. Shocker right?
Let’s start with the beginning; what is SEO first of all?
What is SEO?
SEO is the short version of Search Engine Optimization. It is used to measure the quality of the website on the user’s behalf. Search engines do these measures to rank websites based on their power. When a user searches for something of interest, the search engine returns matching results based on multiple factors such as:
- Website Technical Quality
- Website Structure
- Page Load Speed
- Content Quality
- Brand Identity & Design
- Social Media Presence & Activity
- and the list goes on
Using all these factors, Google/search engines rate your website from 1 to 100. Combined with the user search interest, it returns the most optimal website pages for the user’s benefit.
Knowing this, you do realize that “How long does it take to start seeing results with SEO?” it’s not a valid question, and it’s impossible to answer.
There are strategies that you could implement, and usually, the timeframe is six months to a few years depending on the type of strategy you put in place, but there is no guarantee, and the game does not stop at the end of the process. You will need to keep the quality content and the social media activity flowing, or all your hard work might fail. Everything is connected, and if a “link” is down, the whole “SEO SISTEM” is down.
However, there a few possible questions that you can ask, such as:
How Long does it take Google to index my new website?
The short answer is between 4 days and four weeks.
How Long Until Google Reindex My Website Changes?
Depending on how extensive the changes are, if you respected all the rules out there and the size of your website. It could take one week to a few months if you wait until google recrawls your website. You could resubmit your sitemap, and Google will get informed that you made changes to your website and crawl it as soon as possible. You might expect to get indexed in between 4 days to 4 weeks by doing this.
How Often Should You Blog for SEO?
I would argue that at least one time every day. By doing so, you will have plenty of content to share on social media and customers’ constant growth. But obviously, creating content is not easy or cheap.
Instead, I would recommend a minimum of 1-3 blog posts per week, with a minimum of 1000 words and structured correctly. It will make your life way more manageable when you share parts of it on social media to generate more activity & traffic.
