It also takes persistence. Simply reading a blog from a top SEO strategy company and then employing all of the best practices you learned into your own website or blog is an effective short-term solution. It is not, however, a strategy that will produce long term gains. Remember, you’re not the only one trying to improve your search engine rankings. It’s like that horse racing game at the carnival where you and all of your competitors must shoot a stream of water at a tiny target and the person who’s able to focus their stream on the target the longest usually comes in first place. SEO is the same way. To be successful you must continually have your eye on the prize.
At Vital, we’ve found that the average company will start to see the fruits of their SEO labor pay off within 6–9 months. But again, this generous timeline is only achieved through a persistent SEO strategy that continually focuses on quality and quantity of content.
