SEO Mistake 1 (Poor Content Management System)

This is the modern state, you hired a content firm, they says you that they gives you the best content services at an affordable price but do they really mean that. Think once by yourself? Does they knows the basic SEO features like Anchor management, Keyword density, uses of proper title tags etc. Also think that do you keep a track on the quality of content they produces as they may supply you some Spun contents that can be made in a matter of few seconds without any efforts.

SEO Mistake 2 ( Poor Keyword Research)

Well say suppose you hired the best content firm by spending thousands of dollars per month and when you are tracking the quality it’s far too better than your competitors then why you are not ranking as high as them? well that’s an usual thought if I am not wrong by my end.

Stress a bit now, grab a chat with the professionals you hired and ask them that whether they are doing proper keyword research or not? I am pretty sure that they will be speechless in-front of you. So it’s time to act wise and monetize your keywords research, try long tail pro’s “10 days trial, I am sure you will learn a lot”. Also Google keyword planner is there for your help.

SEO Mistake 3 (Link Building)

Matt Cutts says “Guest Posting is dead!”. Only social signals matters for enriching your blog, yes this statement may be true but it’s entirely not as Link building is still alive and Mr Cutts just tried to protect the quality of link building.

Now check what types of links are you building,

1) Are they Relevant to your Blog.

2) Are you building them by automated software’s.

3) Is it coming from Network blogs or weak directories.

4) Forum Links or Blog commenting.

If these are so your techniques of link building then Man you are still in the realms of dark as the definition of Link building has changed drastically in past few years. Only relevant link from quality blogs and directories are welcomed with proper anchoring that’s referring to your link. Also make sure that over optimization can be harmful for your blog as simply you will be penalized by Google so keep a “Keyword density” of 5%.

SEO Mistake 4 ( Did You Thought Of Investing)

You are thinking that you can do all the things by standing alone in the field. I guess with this concept it may be tired-some for you to rank high in quick succession. You may come up by buying some paid links or breaking away some excellent giveaways to attract the attention of the bloggers. Note- Make sure that you shouldn’t buy any links until your blog is atleast three months old and also the links needs to be relevant completely to your niche.

SEO Mistake 5 ( Thinking of Success in a Day)

It may take some 30-40 days to get your first domain authority update and about few days to get a proper ranking. Patience is the key to SEO and ranking, if you lack these term called patience then you are nowhere in thy competition. You have to learn to stay calm and dedicated to the work you are doing and google will never leave you without the reward that you are expecting.
