    Hi,
    Getting on the first page and staying there for a competitive keyword requires specialized knowledge. Even if you only learn the ins-and-outs of basic SEO, you will be far ahead of the majority of webmasters. Nowadays, the majority of the people online use search engines for finding information and products they want to buy. In fact, some marketers have become very wealthy by focusing on SEO as their main way of getting traffic to their landing pages. The simple equation is high ranking = money. One of the best ways to succeed with SEO is to learn what not to do. For some reason, many internet marketers believe that SEO is a bag of tricks that is updated every month, in fact, it is the opposite.

    The first mistake many webmasters tend to make when trying SEO is they stuff their content with too many vague keywords. Yes, keywords happen to be an important element of SEO, but if you go on and stuff a high number of keywords in your content, then it will only get you into trouble with the search engines as they will penalize your website for spamming. This will have the effect of causing your website to decline in the search engine rankings, and that means you'll lose a considerable amount of traffic. Your traffic will become displeased as they're more interested in information they can read and that offers something they can use.

    You must include ALT tags on every image on your website. Alt tags are the description of the picture you get as it loads.

    However, the other aspect about ALT tags is that when you use them in your images, you will be able to positively increase your search engine rankings. This is one of the most commonly forgotten elements when optimizing a site for the search engines. ALT tags used with your keywords in them, then, have the benefit of getting you recognized by humans and search engines alike.

    Never listen to SEO practitioners who tout SEO techniques that don't use good ethics. There has been a real proliferation of SEO companies offering their services as of late. Some of these companies are definitely worth working with since they use practical ethical SEO methods, but many others depend on unethical or blackhat SEO to get sites ranked. You don't even come to know about this until your site gets banned by search engines. That is why it's important only to hire that company or those people that work within ethics and also those people that will update you constantly on how your site is doing. If they hide anything from you, they're not the right ones to work with.

    If you have been looking for a long term traffic solution that doesn't cost you anything then look no further than search engine optimization. SEO requires you to stay consistent and persistent; do this and you will beat the competition. Just a little patience, that's all. There is no magic SEO button it's all about the fundamentals, stick with them and I guarantee that your site will stick around longer than the people who only take shortcuts.

    Duplicate content, external backlinks from bad neighborhood, stuffed keywords on META tags and invincible text, purchased links, implementing session IDs on your URLs, using Flash and javascripts, and cloaking are some of the popular SEO mistakes can ruin your site's rankings.

    Some more mistakes are:
    • Duplicate content
    • links from bad neighborhood
    • creating 1000s of Links by using automation tools
    • duplicate title tag & meta description

    Yes, I agree with all the points. The most important factors that are to be avoided to prevent the site from Google ban is stuffing of keywords and duplicate content.

    Duplicate content, link farming as well as spamming can harm your website. Although, over link building can even be more harmful if you will not do it in moderation.

    As they say, create your website for people rather than search engines. Rest will follow.

    Thanks for sharing this. Duplicate content by submitting same article to different directories is one of the worst SEO mistakes.
