Social Media & SEO: Are You There Yet?

by Jennifer Beever

SEO social media resultsWhen will you see results from social media and SEO? When is your tweet, blog post, and video content enough?

It takes time. Up to a month for Google to crawl your new site or new blog. Up to three months for social media messaging traction. Up to six months for SEO results – in other words, you start to come up on search results for your keywords.

It’s important to be realistic about your expectations for online marketing.

So plan to:

  1. Blog frequently. At least three posts per month.
  2. Add video – the more interesting the better.
  3. Keep adding content.
  4. Register your website and blog with directories.
  5. Engage with others and encourage comments and likes of your site.
  6. Keep analyzing traffic and keywords with Google Analytics.
  7. Post and comment on social media platforms.
  8. Send out optimized press releases online.

How long did it take you to get SEO and social media results?

Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was
wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Alexandria, WordPress blogs have WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) capability, so you don’t have to know HTML.
