What is SEO
SEO is short for Search Engine Optimization, also known as search engine optimization.
It is a set of techniques and strategies focused on optimizing organic positioning in Internet search engines. 👩🏻💻
Some examples of these search engines are Google, Bing, Yahoo! or YouTube.
To achieve a digital presence it is necessary to have a web page, but it is useless to create it if you do not get your audience to find it easily.
For that reason, you need to make Google work in your favor. 👌🏼
When can I see my SEO results?
Generally, most brands begin to see significant results of their SEO strategy in organic traffic and lead generation after about 6-12 months. 🗓
This figure is indicative, since this can depend on different factors such as the level of SEO competition in your sector, the keywords you are using to position yourself, your budget, the age of the domain, the quality of your links or the amount of optimization that your site requires.
In addition, the type of marketing strategy you employ can get faster results. If you eliminate spam or manage to increase the loading speed you will get a good strategy. 🔝
