Search engine optimization (SEO) is often mistaken as a quick fix method. Most business owners do not understand how SEO works, they just want their website to show up in the number one spot on Google, and they want it to happen overnight.
SEO is a long-term approach that requires a solid starting foundation with consistent monitoring and updating. This is one of the main reasons why business owners become frustrated early on in their SEO campaigns. They do not see instant results, but when it comes to SEO, there is no such thing as instant results. It can take anywhere from six to 12 months for a website to rank on top.
Of course there are ways to have your site rank on the first page much faster. However, such methods are considered illegal, and they will end up causing you bigger problems in the future. Many of these quick fix tactics are considered spam by Google, and using them will more than likely lead to huge drops in your rankings.
SEO is an ongoing process. It is not something you can just stop doing, and expect to see the same results. A successful SEO campaign involves setting realistic goals, both long-term and short-term, and understanding that both will take time to reach. A quality campaign also involves staying up-to-date with the latest SEO tactics and implementing them as needed. Being patient and organized, as well as having a consistent SEO strategy will help your website reach the first page of Google.
