I would like to know how long a STRONG and GOOD SEO campaign would take me to build 1 million unique visitors per month . I launched a website in 15 european languages and would like to know how long this would take. That website will generate data from users in those 15 european languages.

I know SEO requires time and patience , which I'm all about and very good at but I'm curious to hear from people who have succeeded . From what I have read , I believe SEO can bring you tons of traffic up to millions of users if well done . So what are your opinions guys ? Your feedback would be greately appreciated.

    When I do Seo, I never care how long I can get spot 1.
    The time is depend on how hard of the keywords that you are following.

      Not the keywords specifically , the general ranking of a website and traffic , backlinks building , etc..

    Building up your traffic to 1 million unique visitors per month through SEO would require many months of work and writing/publishing hundreds of articles. Be ready for the huge task ahead of you before you begin.

    Or you can do it this way and shorten it by a factor of 5-10x - http://www.warriorforum.com/search-e...ml#post9425044 - months not likely - years unless you can just throw money at it.

    Actually Its depends on your keywords competition. if your key words are high competition & short then its takes time & if your keywords are Medium or low competition & long tail keywords then it take not too much time. Actually for ranking I am using Moonsearch. They have done works for me.

    Although I admire your enthusiasm, I would set the bar a little lower. Start by providing unparalleled rich and informative content for your niche using well placed keywords including long tailed keywords to help drive traffic to your sites. Constantly re-evaluate your keywords and make subtle changes as necessary. If your site is providing the information that is wanted and in demand within your niche then the traffic will grow over time. Good thing you are a patient person and keep doing what you're doing now...research, research, research. Good Luck

      Paul thank you ... My niche is actually classifieds ads website , I've launched a classified ads website that will be global for the whole european continent. It's currently in 15 european languages which will help the site traffic because of the keywords in different languages in Google . I'm very patient and I never give up , trust me . If it's supposed to take 5 years , then so be it .. but do you think my niche is competitive . This is not a BLOG , this is a useful site where people will post stuff for free in Europe available in different languges . Your opinion would be so much appreciated . Let me know what you think of the look of the site too . I've got great feedback so far .

      Site looks pretty amateuristic. If you want to set a long term goal start with a professional looking site I would say.

      Then spend many thousands of dollars advertising your site so you get some sort of momentum from people listing adds on your sites.

      Once the content starts rolling in from people who have something to sell you can start thinking about SEO'ing it.

      That's just my "humble" opinion

      ps: Would also help if advertisements from Albania don't show up in the Dutch section, you are creating a ton of duplicate content. Further more I think it would be wiser to put each country on a sub domain.

      And look at this: http://www.europegiant.com/nl/huisdieren-43.htm , I mean seriously? Not even a listing date or product description on the category pages, wow!

      Here's your competition in Holland btw: http://www.marktplaats.nl/ , got to say the whole look and feel of the site also got totally screwed since eBay bought the place. Can't imagine people appreciate this new design.

        You're the first one actually giving me the comment "amateuristic" From the 30 people I talked to , I was told it looks professional and squeaky clean. I can tell you know nothing about classified web design , I mean REALLY nothing . I just realized this was the WRONG spot to talk about design

        Just because you can't imagine people appreciating the new design ≥ Marktplaats - De plek om nieuwe en tweedehands spullen te kopen en verkopen doesn't make it a bad design . Dude , educate yourself on WEB 2.0 design and classified ads sites , especially what it takes to make a web design user friendly for users by simply making the interface as simple as possible. Also , those language versions are not fully finished yet , as far as the titles go . I was on this forum mainly for SEO , not much for the design since I'm pretty confident with my feedback from people I got so far and my experience with user friendly web design.

        Matt from Google has mentioned MANY TIMES that subdirectories DO NOT matter, actually he recommended them more.

          Wow, you act like you've been bitten

          Btw everyone in Holland I spoke with agrees that the new design from Marktplaats sucks, and the nr.2 Speurders is even worse.

    Even few million visitors per month is possible. The only question is how many years you have to work for that and how much investments and resources are required achieve the same.

    There were far too many busted companies online than the few who has really succeeded. Even amazon was in loss for many years before starting to book profits. If you are limited in budget and aiming to achieve such results on your own it is pretty tough. However if you have a good team, ready to hard work and have the patience and invest for long term then the results are pretty much possible.

    That's fairly impossible with help of SEO alone.
    You have to focus on building brand instead focusing on SEO campaign alone.

    In year 2013, there was less than 6.000.000.000 searches done per day on Google.
    So you should have a site that answer 1/60000 of the people needs all around the world to
    get 1million unique users from Google.

    Notice that 6billion searches is the number of searches done not the number of unique users.
    So basically there are far less than 6 billion unique users around the Search Engines.

    Even if I assume Google has 6 billion unique visitors, you have to grab 1/60000 of their
    visitors per day consistantly. So you have to have an Alexa rank much better than 60000 roughly
    in the world.

    You need to have an organization, and something useful to offer to the users.
    You need to have

    1million x 365 day = 365 million

    users to get familiar with your site per year. You have to target so many countries to grab all those
    users around the world. That means: one person out of 20 in the world, must have to be familiar
    with your site to get you to the goal.

    That's actually impossible with the help of SEO alone.

      Even though I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question , I have just researched on it and it is VERY possible ! I can send you links of people who have actually done it . I also have a friend whose friend did it in only 7 months ! It's funny HOW people on forums talk about things with SO MUCH confidence like they own Google . It is POSSIBLE .. NOT easy , but it is possible with the drive of a go-getter person. I am saying per MONTH , NOT per day

      ALREADY DID MISTER , I was just responding to a last comment after finding out . and IF I WERE YOU , I would think twice about sounding more polite on this forum by using appropriate words instead of being manner less. WTF are you using jousting in this conversation. I responded after what I found out . Have some common courtersy. Read another example of a link I pasted above . Have a good one :-)

    So we sent From 0 to 1.4 Million Visitors in 6 Months: A Lesson in Building Organic Traffic - SEW to some consultants - they came back with this.

    "Take 3 content writers and 2 seo people, $60,000/yr each, one month to prep and one month to implement is $50,000; 1.5million visitors by $50,000 is 30 visitors per $1."

    Now look at the Tier 1/2 information - Providers - pretty funny. Sure, you can burst visitors, but medium to long term the maximum is 25-30 visitors per $1 - regardless of whether you do it via technical seo or business seo - bursting also puts you on Googles radar - and not in a good way.

    If you build yourself a brand you will be able to combat any type of keywords. You will not be able to gain any competitive keywords fast if you are unknown. So think wise before starting.

    It depends on your keywords selection and the product you are working on. The niche selection is one of the most biggest secrete and the than you need to work on, some time it take only 2-3 months and sometime it take 1 year.
