Because, by doing the right SEO, will increase Google page rank and increase traffic to your blog/website. So you must avoid these SEO mistakes to make descent traffic to your blog or website.
This are some SEO tricks that will make your site fall down from SERP :
1. Hiding content inside images
Some webmasters used to display their content inside the images. Search engines will not be able to read the content inside images.
2. Use excessive Java Script/AJAX
3. Use Flash only websites
Even though the Flash can make an exciting blog, search engines can’t read the content inside the flash. You can make up your blog by flash scripts but never add your content inside the flash scripts. Use HTML instead of flash.
4. Usage of Search engine friendly URLs rather than human friendly URLs.
Don’t use unrelated URLs. Use appropriate URL which can describe your content. Don’t worry about the length of the URL
5. Use automated directory submission software
Never use automated software for directory submission. They will consider them as spams. Your blog will get banned from those directories. Use manual submission as an alternative. Submit to well-established directories by using unique Titles and Descriptions. Then they will not consider as copies.
6. Link exchange programs
This is a time wasting program. No value. You will get nothing. Other thing is your link will be removed after few days without informing you. I did this for this blog and got nothing.
7. Use the same meta title and meta description in every page of the blog
Once you use same title and Meta descriptions for all the posts the search engines will consider all the posts as one post. Then your whole site will not index. So use different Meta tags for different posts. But never use inappropriate Meta descriptions. Place key words inside the content.
8. Use unnecessary key words and usage of excessive key words
Use less competitive keywords rather than using high competitive key words. Then you can get instant traffic from search engines. Use Google Adword key word tool to find appropriate key words
9. Usage of wrong key words
Your key words should match with your content. Key words should summarize the content of your article.
10. Copying someone else’s content and paste it on your site
Never do this, because your site will be penalized by search engines. If you blogging on blogger they will ban your blog as well
11. Poor quality content
Your content should be high in quality. Low quality and duplicated content is penalizing by search engines and you will get nothing by just posting that type of content.
12. Poor site navigation
Your content should be prominent rather than your ads. Pop-up windows should be avoided. Your navigation bar should give links to relevant content
13. Irrelevant links
The links on your site should related to your content and those links should lead to the relevant page
14. Expectation of quick results
SEO is not a quick way to increase traffic to your blog. You need to be patience in order to get results. Sometimes it takes weeks to months to get the desired effect. So you should have sustained motivation to work on SEO.
