Getting organic traffic to blog post(s) - How fast does that work?
I've created my Wordpress website including a blog and vlog that links to my youtube channel. I've also published 2 articles to my blog and have a third one in the pipelines.
I've tried my best to make my article optimized for SEO using the techniques I learnt from Hasan's youtube videos (thank you very much!) and incorporated 1-2 keywords per article that have 3-5K search volume and low set difficulty using h-educate keyword research tool.
I've also started answering some questions on Quora and included some links to my posts, but have only had a handful of views to my answers.
My BIG question is: how long does it take for my SEO optimized blog articles to start attracting organic traffic? Are we talking days? week? 3-6 months?
That's an interesting question I subscribe to your thread because I'm also curious to know.
What you have to be sure is to have correctly set your robots.txt configuration and your sitemaps
That will help the robots to index your site nd check it out through a google search command of your landing page
"site:mywebsite.com" and check the number of indexed pages.
The presence of robots.txt and sitemaps are really helping in this.
It will take a quite long time. Please be consistent and tolerate this hard time.
After all that hardwork now sit back and wait the internet do its job but make sure you post and add value regularly because 1-2 articles seems to be quite small for search engines to pick them up.
Hope you refer to more seo content which hassan does quite alot👍.
Honestly speaking, it may take weeks, months, and even years. It all depends on the content you created and how you promote it.
Just my 2 cents advice, just be consistent in creating your content. Try making 2000 - 3000 words for every article you created. Why? Because Google gives a strong preference to longer content.
You see, if you make a quick test, of all the pages listed in page 1, I can safely say that almost all of them consist of 2000 - 3000 words count.
Tips: Your post shouldn't be lengthy solely for the purpose of being lengthy. It is never a good idea to pad your word count with fluff.
For newbies, it takes months. But if you are experienced and expert then you can do it in some days. All you need to do is keyword research and on-page SEO for your content.
Sometimes it even takes up to a year for difficult niches but results are worth it. But if SEO difficulty is really high then it is not worth because it is really difficult to do SEO then.
