So, you spent weeks finding a web builder, devising a sitemap and wireframes, writing content, and selecting photographs and graphics for your website. After spending the time and energy designing a brand new website, you ask yourself, “How long does it take for my website to rank?” The correct question is, “When do I begin seeing results?”
Unfortunately, the answer depends on a number of factors which determine your immediate placement on Google search. Ask yourself these questions: “How long has my website existed?” “Has a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) been done previously?”
SEO boils down to three factors:
- How the website appears on-site
- How the website appears off-site
- The website’s relationship with Google.
On-page ranking factors
On-page factors refer to the unique content, headings, subheadings, titles, descriptions, and tags on a website. Review our blog and content page for ways to add depth to your website.
If you have a business page, consider specific keywords when registering it on search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. For example, if you own a coffee house that also sells cookies, donuts and bakery, you want to rank for keywords such as coffee and bakery. You can write blogs that share coffee brewing techniques and recipes for baking.
When writing quality content, include keywords that reflect a solid conversational tone with no keyword stuffing. Keyword stuffing refers to a technique of cramming and overusing keywords throughout the text to influence the website’s ranking.
Off-site ranking factors
Off-page factors refer to backlinks that link to other social media sites. These backlinks offer an easy online path for visitors to find your business, but be cautious. Some backlinks connect visitors to disreputable sites containing annoying ads with spam and ransomware that harms the overall health of your webpage.
Make friends with Google
Results depend on your website’s reputation with Google, and reputation depends on how the website behaves and what attracts consumers and audiences. The use of Google’s maps, database, analytics, search console tools, and other products educates the search engine giant to identify your site, thereby possibly enhancing the overall promptness of your webpage’s placement.
