I understand that for some of you this might be easier said than done but it is important to realize that SEO is often times a long term goal and it is important to pace yourself and be realistic with the goals of your website. There can be many reasons why things take a great deal of time to work for each website and it is important to understand all of them.
Rick DeJarnette from Bing’s Webmaster blog has this to say:
“The reasons for poor ranking are nearly as myriad as the number of sites on the Web. Your site may be competing against some very well established, well-designed sites in your industry niche. Your competitors may have published a ton of useful, expert content, or have implemented a blog or forum where all of your industry’s customers go for information, thus earning them tons of valuable visitors and backlinks. And frankly, it could be that those competing sites have seriously invested in search engine optimization (SEO) efforts when you have not. If your page ranking is not where you want it to be, your site may be due for a serious examination, one that looks for problems to solve and uses optimization techniques that are meaningful to both human visitors and search engine bots alike. You may be ready to consider a site review.”
Many people sometimes think that paying $59.95 per/month with a low cost SEO service will automatically allow your website to start pulling in a great deal of traffic. It is not so much about the money but the factors surrounding the SEO industry that are important to understand. If you are entering into a space that is already highly competitive it will take a great deal of time to really stand out and make your mark. You can’t assume you will just appear in the search results right away and become noticed.
SEO requires time and patience and a thorough review of every search engine optimization ingredient needed to make your website really move around. If you are not sure if your website is optimized right for search it might be wise to have a professional look at it and really make each page 100% search engine friendly. Make sure your meta tags are unique with researched keywords, your content is well optimized with targeted keywords and your URL structures are search engine friendly and you will have a well optimized website.
