Local service business that’s had a website since November and first crawled end of December. Finally started getting organic traffic and leads end of February. But it’s one week on, one week nothing, one week a couple, one week nothing. What’s going on here? I’m not ranking on page 1 or 2 for anything and apparently all my clicks are from GMB.
I do weekly posts that nobody and I mean nobody clicks or reads but are on topic and populated with keywords. Content is pretty good. Is there a point in doing that? Been doing it since mid December.
I have good word count on all my pages, schema for front page and FAQ page, good loading speed, good layout and interface. Am I being impatient?
Probably still a patience thing. Also, always good to have an outside source look at the content to gauge the quality. Not saying this is the case with your site, but 100% of people in this sub say their content is excellent and that’s not usually the case. I can take a peek at it if you want (not trying to get work or anything, just as a favor)
you probably don’t want to hear this but 3 months isn’t really much time for a business that from google’s perspective is only that old. hard to say much more without knowing industry/target audience/etc.
niche down super hard on i-want-to-convert-right-now qualifiers on your services in your area. again i don’t know the business but things like “open on saturday”/”cost”/”payment plans”/”free quote”/etc. google autocomplete is your best friend.
if popular SEO tools/extensions put your target KWs at 10 or more searches per month you might be aiming too high right now.
