everyone’s telling you to invest thousands of dollars or thousands of your hours into SEO and if you do when should you expect results the last thing you want to do is spend thousands of dollars or thousands of your hours and be like mmm it’s not working that would just suck hey everyone I’m Neil Patel and today I’m gonna share with you how long it takes to see results from SEO here’s the theme with Neil Patel calm when I first started I quickly got up to nine thousand visitors a month from search within a matter of twelve months you fast forward I went to all the way to roughly eighty nine thousand visitors a month from Google right so one year almost 10x my results you fast forward another twelve months I hit over four hundred and fifty thousand visitors a month from Google so in two years I went from nine thousand to four hundred and roughly fifty thousand visitors a month that’s a huge increase right just think about that nine to four hundred and fifty that’s crazy now you’re not going to get the same results as me because when I started Neil Patel calm this wasn’t my first rodeo I’ve been an SEO for a long time well over ten years and when you first start SEO and the first three months you should see more impressions go log into Google search console and go look at search analytics you’ll see how many impressions you’re getting as the first three months go by your impression should be going up if they’re not going up you’re probably doing something off or you’re in a competitive space within four six months for sure the impression count should go up and within your Google Analytics you should see traffic from Google other than terms from your brand name yeah you already be getting a lot of traffic for your brand name but you should be getting traffic for keywords outside of your brand name even if it’s not a lot so in the first six months you should be getting traffic from key terms that aren’t your brand name within a year things should start really kicking in within two years that’s when you’re gonna see the bulk of your SEO growth by then you’ve built up your authority and Trust in Google and you just start ranking for almost anything now here’s a caveat if you’re not building links and you’re not writing a lot of content you’re not getting social signals to your site it can take even longer to get rankings so to get results within the time frames I’m giving you you need to be publishing at least one blog post a week building at least five to ten links a month and you need to be promoting your content each and every single week on Facebook Twitter and any of your other social profiles and be getting engagement if you do that you’ll get results within the first twelve months but you’ll see the bulk of your results come within the first two years
