This is the MOST common question we get and is an extremely hard one to answer. The reason why the question is so hard to answer is due to its many variables. Because of the many variables, it is nearly impossible to get an accurate target date.
Here are some examples:
- Many times clients come to us with poorly built websites expecting them to convert but fail to realize the site lacks the necessary sales copy and call to actions needed.
- It is common that new clients have worked with different SEO companies and their website’s backlink profile has spam or worse, a manual penalty by Google.
- The keywords which best relate to their business are extremely competitive.
So before any SEO expert says how long they expect the campaign to take, they should have done extensive research on your website.
In the best case scenario we have ranked clients on the first page of Google in 3 months and at the top of that page by 5 months.
