A WebmasterWorld thread asks how long should he or she wait for after making a change to see if that change worked in Google. In this specific case, the SEO has a web site that seems to be penalized. He/she wants to make several changes but wants to know how long to wait after those changes are implemented to take his or her next steps.
WebmasterWorld moderator, minnapple, offers some timeline advice:
- Site wide internal link changes can take a few weeks to kick in
- Single on page stuff should happen days after a bot visit
- Inbounds final effects can vary widely but somewhat equals: link found and target page recached + 15 days.
