How long will it take for my Search Engine Optimization efforts to work? That’s a question I’ve heard asked time and time again by my clients over the years. SEO is a process that takes time. If you are willing to invest time and money into your SEO initiative, it can yield the highest ROI of all your marketing campaigns.

When does SEO begin to work?
Enhancing your website’s Search Engine Optimization is a process that takes time. If you optimize your blog posts to generate more organic search engine traffic, it will likely take 4 to 6 months to start seeing results. Some of my clients begin to see results almost immediately. For others, it takes a bit longer. While it is impossible to predict how long it will take to see results for your website, one thing is for certain… with the right SEO strategy in place, you will eventually see positive results that will make your investment worthwhile. Another great thing about a thoughtful SEO strategy is that it continues to produce results over the long haul. When you reach the point where you see your results start to taper off, it is probably time to refresh the content and update the keywords and keyword phrases if necessary.
Does SEO stop working?
The answer is simple… No, never! (Or almost never!)
SEO is a marketing initiative that takes time to implement and requires patience to see results. SEO produces a high return of investment over a long period of time. It is important not to grow impatient so that you won’t stop your SEO strategy too soon.
Many companies underestimate how much time and money it takes to be successful with SEO. I’ve seen companies want to quit after two months claiming the cost of the SEO strategy was not producing the results they expected. This tells me they went into the exercise with unrealistic expectations and do not thoroughly understand the process.
A well written blog post can continue to generate organic search engine traffic for years. One of my most visited blog posts is on how there is no WordPress certification; the post was written years ago and still generates traffic to my site.
