Why Does SEO Take So Long?
We suggest sticking with an SEO plan for a minimum of 3 months. Building website authority takes time! It requires a lot of data observation and competition and keyword analysis to be able to structure a plan that’s suited to your services and target audience. Search engine optimization results will depend on your domain age, competitors and a large number of factors like on-site SEO, website speed and more. With our plans, typically our local clients see some rank jumps in the first 30 days for easy to rank keywords. SEO results will also grow over time, stopping too soon can put a wrench in any progress that’s been gained.
Why is SEO Expensive?
You may not think it’s expensive once you start generating website visits. One lead could cost you $10 CPC if you spend it via Adwords. SEO leads will eventually be free down the road and the clicks could add up to 5,000 + more per month. You have to think what that could be worth to you.
