Why Patience is an important part of Seo?

Search engine optimization is a technique which increases the visibility of websites on search engines. Seo and patience goes hand to hand as it requires both time and effort to get the desired results. The most difficult part in the profile of a search engine optimizer is convincing your clients to invest time in the process of seo. Time is money and if you invest time in seo, it would eventually convert into money from online sales and visibility of the business.

Real life example

Real life example Tree under Sunlight (Image source:- clker)
Good things in life take time to happen. Let us take an example of a Tree. Can you buy seeds and expect it to become a Tree and start bearing fruits in days or months? The short answer to this question is no. The life span of a tree starts with the gardener sowing seeds into the earth, then it converts into a small plant after getting sunlight and water which requires patience , time and effort, eventually it grows bigger and converts into a Tree. A large Tree now bears lots of fruits.
The process of seo is similar to the above mentioned example. In the seo process, a website is made, then backlinks and content are added to the site which acts similar to sunlight and water. Then after months and years of efforts, a site becomes popular and bears fruits. Hence, the role of seo can be compared to that of a gardener.
