When is the right moment to act?
I started a brand new web site.
After a first SEO for my pages I got a certain ranking for them.
As it is pretty less than I expected,the question is:
In your experience/opinion,should I expect that they still grow up at next updatings and leave them intact or should I SEO them again?
Thanks for your kind replies.
What do you mean by SEO it again? If it is getting more back links, then you have to continue doing that as much as you can.
Also, your position keeps improving with the age of the site and content updates.
give it time. you can continue to acquire new links to your site constantly. I would also watch your logs/keyword stats if you have them. Continue watching the patterns of searchers and update your site according to the content you offer. You won't have high rankings overnight based on how you SEO your site.
You centered the target.
I would optimize my pages again but I'm afraid to waste all my previous job.
So it could be good to give it time,but I wouldn't risk to wait in vain loosing precious time...
What would you do guys?
Would you SEO again your site after the first SE updating or would you wait more updatings?
specter - You don't mention the search engine, and you don't mention how old your site is. If you're talking about Google, keep in mind that it can easily take nine months for rankings on competitive terms to appear.
You can help this along by getting good, relevant inbound links. Without the links, it's unlikely that your site will rank or that you'll improve the situation with onpage optmization. All of the engines to some extent rely on inbound links.
If you don't know what you're doing, and it sounds like you're unsure, it may be best to wait awhile until you've gotten a better sense of onpage optimization.
There's also some talk on the forums that Google doesn't like pages that are adjusted. I can't say that I've observed this, but I don't fuss with my pages a lot. I can imagine that a lot of fussing would be counterproductive.
I think the most productive use of your time would be to create additional pages, with content genuinely worth linking to, and then to beat the bushes and see if you can get some links.
To advise you on wether or not to re-seo your pages I would like to see what they look like now. If you'd like, send me your link and I will give you some tips.
I am with Petra, a URL and set of targeted terms would be great...
Reminder: Per out TOS, we perfer to avoid "review my site requests" or links to personal or commercial sites. It's best for the largest number of users if we keep the conversation clear in terms of the nature of the issues being discussed, but avoid specific site names, links, and kw mentions.
Good titles, organised page source, great content (and lots of it - HTML:CONTENT ratio high), good internal link structure and anchors, good use of appropriate markup tags, bold, italic etc - job done, on page SEO complete [webmasterworld.com]. Step away from the page, there is nothing more to do here.
Now you need to become an authority - that takes time (age) and status in your niche (inbound links). That's where SEO becomes SEM. Standard principles of marketing apply - you need to get out there - be noticed. Put your marketing hat on and go and tell the world why your site is so unique that it's the absolute best thing since sliced papaya.
Think of a modern search engine as a newspaper - it's very rare that they run a story on something unless everyone is talking about it already.

Seems that none here posed such a request...
Anyway thanks to TJ for his synthetic but significant reply.It teaches a lot of tings to me;I always thought that SEO was something that accompanies the site for its whole life...
New to me to discover instead,that it ends...
And that it's only the first step in promoting strategy that going ahead becomes marketing.
Thanks so much everybody who partecipated this thread.
