I'd like to find out what you guys think is a suitable timeframe to give SEO changes to a website before moving on? What I mean by this is if I make some changes to my title tag and website description, how long should I wait before I can say "yes, that change works" or "no, that change doesn't work"?? Would you wait 48 hours, one week, two weeks, a month before trying something else??? I know some search engines index faster than others but oftentimes I see changes in 24 hours from Google which is where most traffic comes from. Sometimes SERPs change in 24 hours, etc.

It's another subjective metric, some sites/pages you can see a difference in traffic in a matter of hours, others it may take a week to reach a conclusion.
You are not looking for specifics usually (unless it's a PPC landing page and conversions), it's the trends you need to analyse. If the trend is upwards, it was successful. If not .... .... it wasn't.

I'm going to wait a month and see what happens to my changes. Thank you for your replies. :-)

I have 3 primary keywords that I use for my ministry site. I have put those three keywords in the Google Adwords tool and have gotten a long list of suggested keywords. I have taken the list, looked for the most repetitions of the keywords, and noted any additional words that were used with the 3 major keywords. Then I've tried to incorporate that into my title tag, description, and website text. The website text has the 3 major keywords as well as other suggested keywords mixed up in the text. But my title tag and description tend to focus mainly or solely on my 3 major keywords.
The problem is that I'm having trouble figuring out which of these keywords the search engines sees as being more relevent and thus will result in a higher ranking. The fact is all the suggested keywords are relevent. I just don't know how to pick out the right ones.
Hope that makes sense??

It sounds like you already have? You're using them all throughout your site. The fact that you can use them naturally within your content (presumably) means they're all relevant.

Yes, they are all relevent as they relate to the 3 main keywords. I was just thinking, maybe wrongly I don't know, that some might be weighted more by the search engines than others so that if you got the right (or pretty close to right) combination of keywords on a page it might rank higher. I don't know if that makes any sense or not?

The idea is to choose the right ones for your site based on how popular your site currently is, as well as how popular you believe you can make it over the next year.
