Is my website optimised for Google??
How people look at a web site and how Google views it are two different things. The more text you have on the website, the better. There are also a few other factors like the title and the description of the web page. Websites produced by us are designed to help you get optimised for Google, so that you will have a strong foundation for the next stage.

How long does this take?
The process can vary considerably but you should be looking at a time-scale of months rather than days. Google often takes a week or so to notice changes on a website, so it can take quite a while to see how effective a set of changes were. Further adjustments may be necessary entailing another delay whilst Google catches up again.
Will I keep my position?
Maybe. Google has control of the software that decides the page rankings and occasionally they change it and a top ranked page drops to the bottom. The only solution to prevent this is to have good ,relevant content and to continually assess and monitor your website.
