Mistakes in Search Engine Optimization

seo concept

Poorly designed websites If your website is poorly designed, i.e. if it does not have proper navigation, uses frames to save web designers time, or uses large graphics that take longer to load, all of this affects search engine rankings. This is because the search engines’ robots can be prevented from accessing poorly designed websites. A good website design is therefore a very important part of search engine optimization.

Many websites use images and other scripting languages to make them more appealing.

They are good, but they are not user-friendly, i.e. they are not suitable for search engine optimization. Try to create useful links in HTML instead of using images or other web scripting languages. When the layout of the page changes, place an HTML link at the bottom of the page. This is also a good opportunity to use keywords in the anchor text.

A large image will increase page load time as people don’t have time to wait long. Create images in multiple passes so they take less time than a single image. Try to create low resolution files if high resolution graphics are not required. If you must use large images, consider using thumbnails and opening them on a separate page.

This can have the added benefit of creating more pages and more text, which is what spiders and robots need. Poorly Written Content If we are to evaluate the most important factor for ranking high in search engines, it is “content”.

The clarity of written content on a website is a very important aspect for search engine robots, search engine users and directories. If your content is poorly written and has nothing to do with what people want to find, or if the content is never updated, your website is not user-friendly for either search engines or users.

Search engine spiders feed on well-written content, and content is the key to ranking highly.

Your content should also contain targeted keywords and phrases. When content is written properly, you can put together more targeted keywords and relevant phrases.

Ideally, use these words frequently in your text and you can also bold or italicize them to show search engines that these words are very important in the scope of the page!

The absence of targeted keywords and phrases can ruin your website. If a user goes to a search engine and types in a specific keyword that relates to your website, but you did not put that keyword in the body of the text, your website will not be listed.

Another common mistake that some SEOs make is choosing keywords to place in the META tag.

 Make sure they are logically linked to your content.

Any irrelevant word or phrase can improve your ranking, but remember: even if you manage to rank well for a competitive term you don’t need, how many people who visit your site based on such a search will leave again once they see your homepage? That’s right, because most of them will not find what they are looking for. You should also take into account spelling errors, odd spaces, and product-specific variations. Careful keyword research can save you money and future frustrations.

Now do you realize that targeting such a common word is a waste of time?

 Instead, optimize your website for keywords and phrases that are highly relevant to your business. Use a tool like Word tracker to find out what people are typing into search engines to find products and services that are similar to yours, and strive to rank well for those words. The more qualified your website visitors are, the more likely you are to convert them into paying customers.

 Repeat content Don’t copy content from other people’s websites. If search engines compare your website with other websites and your page is updated later, they will consider your website as spam and this may result in a penalty or poor ranking for your website. If you use duplicate pages, it means that you have prepared multiple pages with different names and links. However, if the content of the pages is the same, the search engine will consider this as a trick, which will surely affect your ranking.
