Andrew also discusses the best ways in which small businesses can improve their search engine rankings. He says businesses should place a bigger emphasis on content creation and getting niche specific backlinks to the website.

Andrew also provides the best process in which to earn high-quality links for your clients. With over 450 writers working at The HOTH they work to manually reach out to sites related to the client’s niche. Once a publication is found that will accept the link they will be able to secure the link, making sure everything is done through their manual outreach process. And despite the fact that businesses are sometimes looking for immediate results when it comes to their marketing, Andrew points out that no matter what company or method businesses use it generally takes approximately 4-6 weeks from the time that Google sees the backlinks to begin to see results from marketing efforts.
