    You can rank pretty well with a 2k-3k/m budget.

    If you don't know SEO that well then I would keep doing the adwords thing and work on SEO as a side project until you are comfortable with it.

    Question is, how much are you making from adwords each month? If it's 10k, I would advise you to keep investing into adwords.

    I'd keep investing money into adwords, while investing some of the profit into SEO.
    It's all about diversification, baby.

    Yeah i am making very good profit margin. But looking for long-term stability and ability to increase profit with less spend. Its hard to find a good seo company for long term. I know we have good services on here - but they seem very one-off.

    Hi,

    The best option as per me would be that you continue with adwords and simultaneously start off with the SEO,
    when you start getting good traffic through your site directly through seo then you should stop adwords.

    For ranking any site to 1st page it generally takes 6 months to 1 year depending upon the niche.

    I can help you out in ranking the site, if still looking for help then PM me.

    Thanks

    If its working, keep it. Dont stop it. Always keep whats working, always!
    What you said is correct, start to invest the profits into SEO. Not a big amount ... just test it out and when it works, you can keep that too and scale it up.
    There are lots of articles in BHW that is good for SEO.
    What you can do is maybe have another site and test that for SEO - this way your adwords is seperated to your SEO.

    SEO takes months to bring results. PPC gets you results immediately. Consider that when spending such a big amount of money..
