The time frame to show SEO results depends on the following factors.
Website history can influence the time taken to see SEO results.
For instance, a new website should take more time than an already established one. This is because an existing website will have built domain authority and backlinks.
However, it also doesn't always mean that an established website can lead the way in SEO because it depends on various factors such as search engine penalties, algorithm updates and much more.
The competition in your industry or business is essential when optimising your website for search engines.
The more the competition, the longer you need to take your website to the top of SERPs.
Channelling SEO efforts and finding innovative ways to perform better than the other industry players will speed up SEO performance.
Keywords aid you in ranking for relevant user searches online. Identification of keywords based on keyword search volume, popularity and user intent needs can be performed.
Poor keyword targeting may cost time and produce a negative SEO impact.
Website Structure & Design
Website design and URL structure also play a crucial role when optimising the website for search engines like Google.
Suppose a user finds it complicated to navigate between different landing pages of your website or meets a dead-end displaying a 404 error because of a broken link. In that case, the website is certainly not user-friendly. Furthermore, Google isn't fond of web pages that don't advocate a smooth user experience.
Optimising these components of a website is mandatory, especially if you want to boost SEO progress.
Also, running a mobile-friendly test ensures that you cater to visitors who access a website from a mobile browser.
