SEO and what you should know when you're about to get started

Carra Lucia Limited Software and SEO

Increasing your ranking on Google and other search engines isn’t complex, but it does take effort.

If you want to increase your website ranking on search engine results pages, begin by implementing the on-page optimization and the off-page optimization techniques you’ve learned in this book.

One question I seem to get quite often is, “How long does it take?”

This is a difficult question to answer because it’s relative. If you’re trying to optimize for a keyword phrase like “eating blueberries on a Sunday afternoon,” it will happen quickly, requiring simple on-page optimization and just a few articles with links back to your website. On the other hand, if you are trying to optimize for a competitive term, and the top-ranked website has hundreds of incoming links, it can take a number of months to reach number one on Google. I can tell you from experience that more often than not, you’ll put in a lot of effort and it will appear as nothing is happening or only small shifts in results are occurring. But stay focused. All of a sudden…wham! Your site will jump up in the search results unexpectedly. Stay the course and I guarantee you’ll see results.

Many fail because they give up too soon. Regardless of where you’re starting from, the key is persistence.

These are the same techniques I’ve used to achieve top positions on Google for almost every keyword and keyword phrase that is important to my websites. Visualize your goal and take deliberate steps toward improving your search engine result placements daily and before long you will be exactly where you want to be— dominating the world’s largest search engine. To simplify your journey toward the number one position on Google, don’t hesitate to use online effective SEO tools and resources and continue learning.

Although search tools, including outsourcing, aren’t required for achieving top search engine placement, they can help you reach your goal more quickly than manually implementing particular SEO techniques. Follow the strategies defined in this book; they’ve been proven effective by many individuals who have already begun using these techniques.

I wish you the best of luck on your SEO journey. See you at the top and don’t forget to always keep it simple!
