Top 5 SEO Mistakes

on Wednesday, 18 July 2012. Posted in Successful Websites

We see these five mistakes more often than any others

  1. Search engines can not find keywords or other text in Flash websites

    - Google is working on this issue but as of now, a Flash website may be pretty but it does little good for your SEO.


  2. Images cannot be indexed by search engines

    - If you use images for headers, buttons, banners, or any place else, the search engine cannot read the text in an image.


  3. Keyword stuffing only hurts your SEO

    - A keyword showing too often on a page is almost as bad as a keyword not showing at all. Do not overdo the keywords.


  4. A trailing slash is not the same domain name

    - If you use , then stick with that. If you try to use, the search engine considers that an entirely new domain name. All of your hard SEO work will be wasted in this case.


  5. Don't give up too soon

    - SEO takes time. You need to understand that nothing will happen overnight. It may take months for you to see real results. Be deligent, tidy, persistent, and keep working at it.

Great menus, breadcrumbs, and internal links are all a requirement if the website is to be successful. At first glance, can you find the website's most crucial items in less than four seconds?
