Website Client Debrief on the Reality of the Internet.
The "Cleint" acknowledges the following and understands that ranking factors include but not limited to:
Website Launch and Search Results:
It may take up to 90 days for a website to appear in search results after its full launch. Google indexes websites at its own pace, with an additional 90 days for SEO work to be indexed.
The ranking of keywords depends on time, competition, and location. Increased competition makes it harder to rank in your area.
Impact of Reviews, Ratings, and Comments:
Google closely evaluates reviews, ratings, and comments, which significantly influence your position in search rankings.
Active Social Media Presence:
Maintaining an active online presence on social media positively impacts your online position. Inactivity may result in your website lacking an edge over competitors.
Website, Digital Marketing, and Social efforts should not be the sole focus. They should complement a broader strategy for self-promoting your business.
Investment and Online Position:
There exists a direct relationship between investment and online position. Google operates as a revenue company rather than just a search engine company.
