Whenever I meet with clients, one of their first questions is, "Can you get me on Page 1 of Google?"
I mean, sure, I have been successful in many cases of getting customers on the first page of Google, I got myself on the first page of Google (type in: Affordable SEO Boston), but it isn't always such an easy task.
You have to consider the niche you're in, whether you want to rank nationally or locally, and whether or not you are in a very competitive market. SEO is so much more than great copy and content. It's all about quality links back to your site, pages that focus on specific topics, a good cross-linking strategy, having an XML sitemap, the age of your domain, the number of social media accounts you have, and how awesome and readable your content is. In other words, SEO depends on how "trusted" your site is with your peers, how many highly-ranked sites link back to yours & how often your awesome, original content gets shared with others.
SEO isn't easy. Keywords, Page Titles and meta-descriptions are a small piece of the puzzle. If you're a local business, it's much easier to make sure you rank within the cities you care about. But if you're a national brand without a lot of time online (less than 2 years), it's going to take time to build your presence and get the right kind of press, the right kind of links, and build your social media presence. Starting with a good organic SEO Strategy is a key part of getting seen by the people you want to know that your website exists.
