If you are a beginner who is still in the learning phase of SEO then this blog post is especially for you. I’m going to discuss the top 5 SEO mistakes made by beginners. I still remember the time when I was a beginner in this field. There are many myths that I couldn’t solve but I wanted to find solution to all those questions. Perhaps, this curiosity has leaded me to this success today. Being a beginner in SEO or any industry is not bad but to make the mistakes is really bad. Although, you will learn from the mistakes that you make but if you are really that smart then you will learn from the mistakes made by others and make your own unique mistakes to learn unique lessons.
SEO is completly learn by mistakes but you should know those mistakes so that you could not get hit by Google penguin update or Google Panda update. You never know in the start that how SEO works and you just keep on making back links without knowing the results !
Most of the SEO worker starts with Directory submission and then keep learning new things but they can not do complete SEO till they do SEO for a complete website and rank them with quality back links. You can not learn SEO till you got the results and then you will come to know that how Search engine works and what kind of Back link should be made to achieve results. If you could see the snapshot on right side then you will come to know that SEO is same as chasing your own shadow or chasing a carrot which will never come in your hands.
Below are top 5 mistakes that are made by beginners;
1. Taking SEO Easy
We often hear that SEO is a piece of cake and it is not that difficult to learn. Well, I accept the fact that learning SEO is not a difficult task but still it requires efforts, devotion and hard work. Without hard work, you cannot achieve anything in this world. There are numerous websites on the internet telling the beginners that with the help of their magical software, they can achieve high results in SEO. Well, there are some great software tools which are used by SEO experts but not all that glitters are gold. You must keep in mind that SEO is a challenging field and things keep changing each day in this industry. So, be prepared to meet the challenges and find solutions to complex problems.
2. SEO Is Spamming
This terminology may have worked for those who started their career in SEO 5-6 years but considering SEO as spamming in today’s time is completely hogwash. You must know that spamming is unethical in anyway and you should avoid it. Secondly, those software sellers telling you to buy their software, throw a WordPress page online and then see the process of money making on autopilot are actually real spammers. They will sell you a scrap software tool which does nothing and take your money away. SEO is a hard work; it requires efforts, devotion, motivation and creativity.
3. Nothing Technical In SEO
Without proper understanding of technicalities of SEO, you cannot become an SEO expert. If you are a beginner, you may not need to know about many technical things but once you become a pro, there are several technical terms and techniques that you need to learn. So, if you are choosing to become an SEO expert because there are no technicalities involved then you better reconsider your decision. Most of the technical things will involve in On page SEO.
4. SEO Produces Fast Results
SEO doesn’t produce fast results and if anyone tells you that you will get huge success in a short period of time with the help of SEO then they are misguiding you. There are certain cases in which SEO can be fast but in order to get long term results, you need to go for a long term SEO strategy. This is how SEO works in the real world. If you are targeting Long tail keywords then you will get results in short time but if you are going for competitive keywords then take this mind that you will never get the results fast.
5. Software,Tools Are Good For SEO
Again, this is s a big lie and you have to accept it. If someone tells you that with the help of a particular software tool, you can get great SEO results in short period of time then you must realize that they are either selling that software to earn profit or a commission. There is no magic software tools because magic exists in your brain – start using it and feel the difference.
6. Hard Link building
Most of the new link builders just keep on making links and never try to look on results. They just know few methods of Link building and they keep on making links using the same method. They never change anchor text of back links and make 200-300 back links in one day and they think that excessive use of link building can bring results to them but in fact they were doing wrong methods and these methods could penalize website from sandbox or Google penguin attack.
