Showit SEO FAQs
Is Showit any good for SEO?
The most important ranking factors in SEO are relevant and great quality content, and backlinks that build trust signals. Google does not favor one platform over another.
How long does it take to get to page 1?
How quickly you can rank will depend on a wide range of factors which include website age, your content strategy, the quality and relevance of your content, the volume of your content, the quality and volume of backlinks in relation to your competitors, and how competitive your niche is. Due to the high number of variables, it’s not possible to predict exact timescales.
Is it possible for my Showit website to rank well without a blog?
I believe a blog is an essential element in the marketing of your business. It will help with driving more traffic for a wide range of terms, as well as help with increasing brand awareness on social media. Blog content enables you to create content relevant for your potential clients at different points in their buying journey. It’s also great for showing your expertise, or for educating your clients.
