Achieving sustainable success in search engines is a long haul task.  The search results are constantly changing and businesses are vying to appear prominently for the key terms in their industry.

Long term SEO success requires hard work, investment and rooting SEO principles into the lifecycle of your website.

It’s fair to say that most websites will have quick wins that can be made to give them a boost in search engines, but it’s unlikely to grab them the top spots or for any length of time.

Ask yourself why you are considering SEO?  Are you looking for a quick boost that will be gone in a few days or are you looking for sustainable long-term success?
