How fast can you see results from your SEO campaign?

Search engine optimization (SEO) is
one of the most cost-efficient Internet marketing strategies. However,
there’s one thing to consider: While you get immediate results with
paid click advertising (Google AdWords), SEO is a long-term investment.

That’s the reason why most SEO
agencies require you to sign a contract for a minimum of six months or
a year. Which results can you expect after doing SEO work for about a
year?

How long does it take?

The basics of
your SEO campaign

Step 1: Check the status
quo

If you want to find out how successful
your SEO activities are, you have to measure them. When you start,
check your rankings and the number of visitors that your website gets
at that time.

The Ranking Monitor
and the Website Analytics section in SEOprofiler can help you to do
that.

That’s your starting point. Then
create your SEO strategy. What do you want to achieve?

Step 2: find better keywords

If you’re new to search engine
optimization, it’s likely that there are many good keywords that you do
not use with your website yet.

The better the keywords for which your
web pages can be found, the more customers you will get. The keyword tools
in SEOprofiler help you to find the best keywords for your web pages.

Step 3: optimize your
pages

During the next few weeks, optimize
the pages of your website. Optimize as many pages of your website as
possible for they keywords that you identified in step 2. Modern search
engines do not rank single keywords, they rank topics. If your whole
website is relevant to a topic, it is much more likely that your web
pages will get high rankings for individual keywords.

The Top 10 Optimizer
helps you to optimize your web pages. In addition, you should remove
all technical errors from your website that can lead to problems with
search engines. The website audit
tool identifies these errors for you.

Step 4: recurring work

Link building and content creation
(blog posts, new pages, infographics, etc.) should be the focus of your
work from now on. The more you work on this, the better results you’ll
get.

SEOprofiler offers many link building
and link management
tools that help you to build links as efficiently as possible.

During your work, the website audit
tool will regularly check your web pages to find out if your new
content contains errors or other issues. The Ranking Monitor will
monitor the positions of your web pages to show you your progress over
time.

So how long does
it take until you see results?

In general, the first remarkable
increases in traffic happen around 4 to 6 month into an SEO campaign.
Depending on how much time and work you invested, you will start seeing
hundreds or thousands of additional visitors.

After 12 months, you can see a 50%
traffic increase. If you started with a new website, your site should
have thousands of visitors by now. This requires some work but it’s
definitely worth it and it is much more cost-effective than advertising
on Google AdWords.

Things to
consider

The exact results that you will get
depend on a number of variables. Here are the most important things
that influence how long it takes to be successful:

1. Your keywords

This is the most important factor. If
you choose the wrong keywords, all of your SEO efforts can be in vain.
For that reason, it is very important that you take some time to find
your best keywords before you start with your search engine
optimization campaign. Further information on how to find the best
keywords can be found here.

2. Your industry and
your competition

Unfortunately, some industries are
much more competitive than others. If you’re in an offline industry
(for example manufacturing) then it’s usually easier to get high
rankings than in industries with high online competition (for example
retail).

If there are one or two big
competitors that occupy most of the keywords, it can be more difficult
to get high rankings for these keywords.

3. The amount of content
that you publish

Some organizations do very well with
publishing one article per weeks. Others publish new content every day.
The amount of content that you publish plays an important role in the
results that you will get.

4. The amount of links
that you get

The more you invest in link building,
the more likely it is that your web pages will get high rankings. The
rankings of your web pages heavily depends on the quality and the
number of links that point to your website. The more time you invest in
link building, the better.
