SEO means Search Engine Optimization. Search engine optimization is as simple as what it sounds like - optimizing your site and content to show on search engine results pages. Ideally, you want your site to be ranked high and come up on the first page of search engine results. For this to happen, a variety of factors and tactics are put in place to improve your site ranking. SEO includes factors such as having high quality and helpful content, using relevant keywords, making sure your site is mobile friendly, staying on top of your competition, and generating organic traffic.
Generally speaking, a 4-6 page business website takes anywhere from 3-5 weeks, depending on how ready you are with your written content.  E-commerce web design takes about 4-8 weeks, also again depending on how ready you are with your product and company information.  A website redesign can take anywhere from 1 to 6 weeks depending on the scale of the redesign.
There is absolutely no fixed answer for this question. Any SEO strategy progress varies greatly on the amount of optimization needed and the strength of the niche competition. To put your mind at ease though, many SEO experts will tell you it can take up to 6 months to start truly seeing the results and progress of your SEO plan. But it is all dependent on the above-mentioned factors and how much time goes into the plan per month. If you’re really dedicated, research your niche and optimize well, the time it takes to improve your ranking could be quicker than expected!
