How long does it take to see results from SEO?


How long does SEO (search engine optimization) take to work?

This is a clear example of the length of time it takes sometimes to achieve number 1 rankings on Google.

John Mueller from Google has been saying this for a long time.

SEO (search engine optimisation) takes time.

QUOTE: “Making significant quality changes across a site takes time to be picked up & reflected in search. These things often take several months to be reprocessed & reevaluated.” John Mueller, Google 2021

Here’s the thing though.

The example in the image above was not a significant change to a site.

It was a very specific change to a few bits of text on one page.

And it still took 6 months to “process”.

Basically, you can expect to see some benefits of successful SEO (search engine optimisation) almost immediately, but sometimes you need to wait 6 months or more for the rest of it to catch up.
