I am looking for a little feedback if I may. I redesigned a clients site about 50-60 days about http://www.roygallowaylaw.com/
. It has been nowhere to be found in the search results or when it finally shows at like page 6 or beyond it is not even a page that should be showing, like the "about-us" page for a search for "Criminal Defense Attorney Harrisburg PA" . So last week I did some searching and using http://www.siteliner.com/
I discovered a lot of duplicate content on the site which was created from the categories I assigned Blog posts to. Apparently (I am embarrassed I did not know this) but according to https://yoast.com/articles/wordpress-seo/
the Categories are to be marked "NoIndex" and the "AuthorPage" and "Archive Pages" should all have tweaks made to avoid duplicate content.
My business site also has and issue a few months ago but I thought is was from some of the content I put on my site and have made little effort to correct and of course have had little improvement.
For this Attorney all the content was brand new and what I felt was quality. All of my other clients I have not made any changes to the "Categories" or "Archive Pages" I was waiting to see how this played out. No one else is having any issues.
In looking at his links they are not super strong but nothing that different than other local attorney sites at the bottom of page 1 or the top of page 2.
So my question, how long should I expect to wait to see results? Does anyone have an opinion on any errors I am over looking? Thanks
