  • Common SEO Mistakes

    The following is a brief list of items web designers, web developers, and web optimizers should try to avoid when performing SEO on a website:

    1) Splash pages:

    Not only splash pages are bad for SEO, it’s also high on the usability NO list. Take this one step further, sometimes these pages are 100% flash, making it impossible for search engines to spider the page, and follow the link.

    2) Flash Menus that can’t be spidered:

    Many designers make this mistake by using Flash menus such as those fade-in/out and animated menus. Yep, sometimes they look the business, but they can’t be seen by the search engines; and thus the links in the Flash menu will not be followed.

    3) Image and Flash Content:

    Dont embed important content (such as target keywords) in Flash and images

    4) Ajax heavy sites

    Dont try to impress too much, specifically by deploying massive Ajax features (particularly for navigation purposes), as this is a big SEO mistake.

    5) Unfriendly URLs:

    Most blog or CMS platforms have a friendly URL feature built-in, however, not every blogger is taking advantage of this. Friendly URL’s are good for both your human audience and the search engines. The URL is also an important spot where your keywords should appear.

      Using frames is also harmful for SEO.

                    Re:

                    I think some websites uses connections from irrelevant link, means you can linking with non-relevant sites. And if you do so then you may penalize from search engine to using it.

                      I have found that Ajax is not a problem as long as it is for subsequent loads. You want your content to all be visible to the search engines and not come as the result of an AJAX call. As long as you do this in the first place, you should have nor problems in terms of disadvantages in your SEO.

                        Black Hat technique also not good for the website. As we know that web designer and developer don't have any idea about SEO Guidelines. So these common mistakes comes out after launching the website. And when SEO guy recognized these mistakes, then designer get frustrated for changes.

                          One of the most common mistakes that I have come across is over optimizing of the keyword pages. If you are focusing on some keyword, it is also important to use keyword variations and promoting them. Moreover keyword stuffing should also be avoided. If the on page optimization is done correctly, it does not take much time for the keyword to secure a good ranking. Make sure that you are promoting the variations of the keyword you are working on and you will get the best response.
