About I month ago I launched a brand new wordpress site.
I have invested a significant amount of money first in getting the site built then secondly in getting the site SEO optimized. My SEO company is actively creating new content in the form of new pages and blog posts and pushing hard on the social media integration and promotion.a
The site has SEO related plugins installed and configured has the prefered domain set to no www has both regular and multiple xml based sitemaps all submitted and verified in webmaster tools and meta data configured. The site appears to be getting indexed I can see that 195 pages are in the index using the google site search operator
However when I search for EDM keywords in google my site is not showing up. I know it is a competitive keyword but due to the fact that my domain is a exact match domain surely I should be appearing in the rankings by now, no? a competitor with the same domian but .org is ranking number one with their exact match domain why am I having issues? 3 years ago I launched a similar site and immediately obtained great rankings for which I still enjoy for a keyword search of that EDM
My SEO company says it takes time for new sites to get fully indexed and to build trust with google but it's been over a month now and I am not getting anywhere near the top 2 - 3 pages for any related searches. I am just not sure on what to expect.
Any insight thoughts on the matter would be greatly appreciated
