SEO updates done? Have patience!

15 Mar 2013

Ok, you're done updating your website for SEO purposes. When can you expect thes changes to take effect? In short, it takes time.

Example

I'll take this blog as an example. Approximately 2 months ago I changed some technical aspects, think of ALT tags. link titles, a new homepage setup. I took some time, but look at the graph below taken from Google Analytics.

Nobody knows how much time it takes for your changes to have effect. Also keep in mind that your changes might not have the effect you hoped for, it depends on how well your site was ranked before you made the changes. In my case, it was not so hard to have full effect, because I did not have SEO in mind setting up this blog. Now I do :)
