The time it takes for your website to appear on page 1 of Google depends on a number of factors. It depends on the search phrase people are using to find your website and the number of other websites that are also available for those search phrases. Nobody can truly say how long it will take for your website to appear at the top of search engine results pages (including people who actually work for Google), however there are a number of factors that can improve your chances. Building your website on WordPress is a good start as WordPress has some great Search Engine Optimization fundamentals built-in. Creating unique and interesting content on a regular basis for your website is also critical to increase your visibility amongst search engines. Launching your website and then forgetting about it is a surefire way to get lost amongst the noise. We are happy to talk to more about your search engine strategy if we haven’t already.
We will install Google analytics software on your new website and will provide you with weekly reporting to your email where you can see a wide range of statistics about your website including number of visits, page views, etc.
While we like to be flexible and responsive to your needs, we also like to deliver what we promise within the time frames and budgets we have allowed. If your new feature is something you would like to add to your website but is not directly tied to your original objectives, then we will suggest to schedule it for a second iteration of the website once it has been launched. This will of course require a new proposal.
