SEO Mistakes

If you have time in online business, you will probably notice how many people are trying to put their websites on the first page of Google. But only 2% of all people can achieve their goals. That is so minuscule.

Maybe you’re one of the 98% that are struggling with your SEO and you’re asking yourself why you can’t  achieve the top 10, so that bring us to this post.

Today i will share with you 6 common mistakes that you’re probably making if you are not seeing good results, so pay attention carefully to this list.

1. Wrong Keywords

Keyword selection is very important when it comes to putting your site on the top 10 of Google. And i realised that most people don’t worry about it. The main problem is that people select too many competitive keywords, so outranking the top 10 sites is really hard.

My recommendation is to focus your energy in long-tail keywords with poor competition. I promise you that if you work hard, you will find awesome keywords with poor or no competition at all, but only if you work properly.

To do find your keywords, you can use: The keyword planner (Free way) or Market Samurai (Paid way).

2. Do not use LSI keywords

I will not explain much about this because its a long topic, but you can learn more about LSI keywords on this site.

3. Not having enough back links or not having the correct variety of PR back links

Sometimes you need more links to outrank your competition, but also need a good variety of PR back links. That means that you need high PR back links (PR 3-9) but also low PR links pointing to your site (PR 0-2). A lot of people make the mistake of looking only for authority links, which also hurts your SEO.

Google don’t like too many high PR back links. To my experience, only 1% of your back links must be from PR6–10 sites and the rest must be a mix of PR 5 and less.

4. Building back links but don’t have traffic

A common mistake is that people focus all their energy on link building but they forget generate traffic to their site so Google thinks “How can this site get back links if it don’t have visitors to read its content, That isn’t natural”.

5. Duplicate Content

You must be sure that your site have only unique and interesting content. Google hates duplicate content; be careful.

6. Building backlinks really fast

A lot of people think that more back links you have, the better, but that is not exactly true. A high number of back links can hurt your rankings; 5 to 10 back links per week are enough to give you a place in the top 10 of Google.

Obviously, there are a lot of other mistakes that can hurt your SEO but this 6 mistakes are commonly committed and too often ignored. Hopefully you find this list useful, and if you do, please leave your comments below.
