1. Wrong Keywords

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

My recommendation is that focus your energy in long tail keywords with poor competition. I promise you that if you looking 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. 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 have enough amount of back links or don’t have a correct variety of PR back links

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

Google don’t like too much high PR back links. To my experience only 1% of your back links must be of 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 the content duplicated, be careful.

6. Building backlinks really fast

A lot of people think that more back links you have the better and that is not exactly true. A high amount 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 another mistakes that can hurt your SEO but this 6 mistakes are commonly committed and too ignored. Hopefully you find this list useful, and if you do please leave your comments below.
