As we near the end of September, I suddenly realize that there are 3 months left in the year 2011. That is just about 3 full months before Christmas. I know that November and December are generally the busiest online shopping periods of the year. So I was wondering, if I started a site right now from scratch, with good keyword research, proper SEO tactics, add good content, and do some backlinking, can I actually hope to get some traffic and sales by Christmas time? Or have I missed the bus?
