Questions About SEO
What is Search Engine Optimisation?
This is the practice of improving a website’s ranking in search engines such as Google and Bing. There are many things you can do on your website to improve this, known as on-page SEO (relevancy). There are also many factors outside of your website, known as off-page SEO (popularity).
How long does it take to rank on page one of Google?
There is no clear answer to this question as every business & industry is different. According to many trusted sources, it’s usually between three & six months.
If you have a unique business in a narrow market where it’s not so competitive it might be faster.
