One of the most usual questions SEOs get asked is "How long does it take to get SEO results?"

Companies want to know when they will see a return on their investment, but SEO is not paid media, where results could be seen almost immediately after an ad launch. It takes time to see the return from SEO.

What does successful SEO look like?

When it comes to putting together an SEO strategy, it's common to look at campaign goals and KPI.

    Goals = the final result you want to achieve.
    KPI = Metrics showing progress towards your goals

In reality, these goals and key performance indicators look something like this:

    Goals = growth revenue to a certain level over a 12-month period.
    KPI = increase in organic traffic, visibility, impressions or positions.

Goal setting is about setting measurable but realistic goals. You should to focus on the length of time it usually takes to see results against key KPIs.

Often results from SEO could be seen within 6-12 months

SEO should bring results within 6-12 months. We mean a measurable increase in traffic and related leads or conversions. This doesn't necessarily mean that you will have reached your goal by this point, but any business investing in SEO should see progress within this time.

Google and other search engines strive to show the best result for any given search query, so it takes some time for a site to rank high.
It is necessary to achieve maximum visibility in SEs.


That is a common tale from "seo specialists" who run other people's sites, but do not have their own.

Depending on the site subject, depending on where the traffic comes from, depending on which site - there are a lot of nuances.
But taking them into one, the first traffic from search engines starts to go much earlier. A few weeks later, a small page under the woofer received traffic from Google with the right promotion.

Or f.e. a large catalog, well-made, immediately after indexing gives traffic from Google. So what the hell is all about a year before traffic for new websites.
