“Avoid These 3 Toxic SEO Practices To Get On Google’s Good Side – And Give Your Website A Chance At Grabbing Highly Profitable Rankings”
The fastest way to get your website in Google’s good graces is by AVOIDING these 3 toxic SEO practices below. Follow the outlines I’ve listed and you should be safely protecting your websites against getting banned.
And perhaps start receiving a steady steam of visitors too…
TIP #1: Don’t Overdo Onpage SEO
Onpage SEO is related to everything which is on your website. Here, your text, images, H1 & H2 tags, meta descriptions, page title and URL play a part in helping you get ranked.
However, if you go about it the wrong way you risk getting penalized. Here’s what you shouldn’t do.
Lets say you’re trying to rank for the keyword “mountain bike Singapore”, BAD ONPAGE SEO would mean stuffing the keyword everywhere you can, throwing caution to the wind.
“Mountain bike Singapore” would be inserted into the page URL, Title, H1 & H2 tags, descriptions, image alt tags and injected constantly into the entire content of the pages of your website.
And it would most likely trigger what Google calls a “Panda” penalty.
Instead, you should be cautiously and carefully inserting the keyword AND ITS VARIATIONS (“4 gear mountain bikes”, “mountain bikes”, “heavy duty mountain bike” etc.) at different locations throughout your website.
Not only would this make sense to the reader, Google will reward you for it.
TIP #2: Clean Backlinks Only
Back in early 2012 Google rolled out a major update, called “Penguin”, to its search engine algorithm (ranking formula). Part of what it aims at doing is combat spam online.
In this case bad backlinks pointed to your website.
Bad backlinks are those which exist in low quality places on the internet, some of which associate with nefarious topics linked to adult and illegal pharmaceutical sites.
If you’re building backlinks, avoid these types of neighbourhoods. Trust me, you’ll be doing yourself a huge favour.
TIP #3: Don’t Be Evil
Avoid using softwares which churn out backlinks by the tens of thousands for your websites. That is a sure way to raise a red flag over your URL and basically indicate to Google that you’re trying to be funny.
Softwares that produce thousands of backlinks at a time exist out there on the internet and they’re not that costly to acquire and run.
It may be tempting to step into that world using mass backlinks, however, the pay off could be minimal.
Worse still, you could get yourself banned, if either you or your SEO guy/gal uses it on your website…
