Inexperienced and sub-par SEO agencies will usually lay claim to providing quick SEO results. Their promise is that your website will be featured on the 1st page of Google after a couple of months (2-3 Months). While some SEOs can meet this expectation if the industry their dealing with isn’t competitive, for most this isn’t the case.
Here’s a breakdown of the timeline:
SEO Research & Customer Approved Strategy- Can take up to 2 Weeks
On-Page SEO (For only 10 Keyword Phrases)- Can take up to 2 Weeks
Off-Page SEO (Can be Done Side by Side with On-Page)- Can take up to 2 Weeks
So, the 1st Phase in the process can take up to 1 Month of Research, Optimization, and Publishing.
After that you have to wait for the “Google Crawlers” to index your site completely and effectively, this can take up to 2 weeks as well.
