In many cases, I hear that an SE site should grow organically. Basically I agree with it. Still I would like to understand which factors do influence that process.
One scenario is for example which I can imagine, a user search on a search engine like Google for "deploy kubernetes", "devops kubernetes". In fact I can't see not a single SO/SE link there.
Also, for "java exception error" I get one Google result link from SO but it's nevertheless the first one.
So it seems like organic growth does not depend of googlability of these sites?
