Question: Other SEO companies say it takes them 6 months to get us up to top 10. Why does it take them so long? After taking your classes (that end 2/28), would that ultimately make me top 10. (if I’m doing my homework and doing all the work behind the scenes)
Answer: Whether you get a company to the top ten on Google depends on a number of factors. First, of course, you have to clearly identify the target keywords. Keywords are critical. Second, it’s competitive. Different keywords have different levels of competition; getting to the top isn’t just a function of what you do, it’s a function of how competive those keywords are. Third, the length of time it takes is a function of how you ‘train’ Google to index your site. A well run site like jm-seo.net can create new content and have it up on Google in a few days, if not a few hours. A non-optimized site could take a lot longer to retrain Google to index its content frequently.
As for the SEO companies, unfortunately there are many scam companies out there. Sometimes I feel like I teach in the ‘diet’ industry. I am the person who will train you on what to do, but caution you that you have to ‘eat right’ ‘exercise more’ etc. – there are clear things to do, but it does take discipline to achieve it. It’s not really that hard but it does take work.
