As Google will take time to index and crawl a new website, content marketing is a way to get your brand out there and be seen whilst waiting for your site to show in Google Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs)
An aged website, older than a year, will have different SEO and content marketing needs to a new site
The SEO of older sites often need more specialist services such as technical or forensic audits to find out why a site isn’t showing on SERPs. Sometimes an aged website will need to be rebuilt to get it competitive and following Google website guidelines
Content Marketing still works great for older sites but the strategy may be quite different. The first step in SEO for older websites is to fix past SEO mistakes, technical issues and reputation management
Many SEO studies have shown that it takes 3 months of consistent work to see results from google, 6 months for better results and 1 year for best results
