This is the question I get asked most frequently when discussing SEO content writing services with a new client.?
And it’s perfectly understandable. You’re paying for a service, you want to know how long it will take until you reap the benefits, right?

Of course, not all the blog posts are in your industry. Which takes us to our next point:
2. Competition matters A LOT!
Three months is the average time it takes a piece of content in a low-competition industry to rank on a decent position.?
Twelve months is the average time it takes a piece of content in a high-competition industry to rank on a decent position.?
