It could take from 6 months to 1 year to get results since there is a lot of competition. Some agencies claim they can do this for super high amounts of money but they don't guarantee results. If this is the path you want to follow I can recommend one company where you pay until you rank: RankPay.
Another option is to make your own SEO, it's not hard, but it takes time and knowledge. I would suggest to take this course if you are interested in making by your own: SEOexperts.com and the last option is to hire a freelancer with expertise in SEO, search on Fiverr or PeoplePerHour for the best option. Now pay attention because I will mention some sources to work in your SEO as soon as possible.
This is best and most effective traffic when you just launched a product or started a company. In fact, it is not directly a SEO strategy but it helps a lot due to the big amount of distribution that your website gets when you launch a press release.
A press release is a written or recorded communication directed at members of the news media for the purpose of announcing something ostensibly newsworthy. Typically, they are mailed, faxed, or e-mailed to assignment editors and journalists at newspapers, magazines, radio stations, online media, television stations or television networks.
The benefits of a Press Release is that an article about your product or company is distributed all over internet in thousands of news websites and it has a high probability of being published by a famous and well-known website like New York Times, Business Insider, The Washington Post, etc. and even if it's not publish for any famous news media, the amount of backlinks will help you a lot to rank and increase your SEO (search engine optimization).
In order to get your Press Release distributed you need two things:
- A properly well written press release
- A press release distribution service.
Usually, press release distribution companies offer also the writing service so you don't have to worry about that (in any case, you can always find a writer on Fiverr or iWriter).
My favorite PR distribution company is eReleases because it's a company where you can get your PR written and distributed for a very good price and it works with thousands of journalists. Besides their press releases are shown on Google News and Yahoo News; so you get a lot of exposure.
I would like to mention other companies but the only one I could mention is PR Newswire, however eReleases works with the same network of publicists than PR Newswire the only difference is that eReleases doesn't have crazy high prices as PR Newswire. If you want to know more about eReleases, you can check the website here. I also recommend you to check this powerful article about How To Write A Powerful Press Release or just rely totally on eReleases team, they know what they do.
b) Influencer on Social Media
As I said before, SEO is about distributing your content along the web. The work you are doing in your social media is already helping to improve your ranking in the search engines. An influencer is someone who people listen to online. When it comes to search engine optimization, having an influencer in your corner will mean more people link to your website, share your blog posts and trust your content.
c) Relevant Content Marketing
If you have a blog, publish articles, upload videos, post pictures, share content; all these activities are constantly helping to boost you’re your SEO. Don’t stop doing it, soon you will see the results.
d) Mobile Version Ready
Nowadays, pretty much every template for WordPress websites is mobile friendly. What does that mean? It means that if a user wants to visit your website from a mobile phone or tablet, they will be able to see a nice, professional and friendly version of your website on those devices.
Just make sure your website has a good look if you access from your mobile phone. You can also check this website and check how your website is displayed in every device: MobileTest
d) Secure Your Website (HTTPS)
This is a little bit more complicated but it’s very important. In the last months, Google decided to help to have a more secure and safe internet. Thanks to this responsible decision, Google decided to boost the ranks of website with additional security and low the rank of those less secure.
If you notice, there are some websites with a GREEN LOCK in the browser tab, just next to the URL. This green lock is telling the visitor that the website is secure.
YOU NEED THAT GREEN LOCK IN YOUR WEBSITE ASAP.
How to get it? Very simple. Just visit your hosting company and buy a SSL certificate. If your hosting company is Hostgator, you can visit their website, log in to your account and order a SSL. Contact the support team if you have problems. After you pay for it, they should install it for you and your website should show the green lock in the next 24 to 48 hours.
