    Hi all,
    I'm used to doing SEO with on page optimization, content building etc. But through circumstances out of my control I'm being asked to prove the SEO ROI for a client that just launched within 2-3 months.
    Content building is slow going - at a rate of 2 pages per week.
    In addition I'm building out some citations, social media, webinars and videos. With the videos I am doing transcripts under each video - in my mind an easy boost to the content.

    What else can I do that would help boost results in such a short time that's still white hat?

    I'd appreciate any ideas anyone has.

    Social media doesn't necessarily improve SEO. Content building take more than 2 months to show results, but if you keep 1.5 new quality posting on your website every week, focus on 3-4 keywords max, repeat them through your posts and articles, and add about 1-2 links to those keywords every month or so - I think you'll some results in 2 months. Nevertheless, SEO is a long term media. 2 months is nothing to prove ROI on SEO.

    You won't get results in such short time frame... unless you are dealing with low comp keywords.

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, I'm used to dealing with a six month time frame to show ROI. Believe me I did not sign up for this. Over zealous sales person. This guy also promised a completely new website to a different potential client consisting of over 600 pages of content for $500. THAT I was able to stop because it was obvious but people here don't get seo. Trying to get some peeps on my side.
    I hadn't been doing the only 3-4 keywords but I think i can get that done with a minor shift.
    Thanks again!
