SEO Beginner’s Mistakes

April 12, 2011 at 10:01 am Leave a comment

To make mistakes is human, or at least that’s how the old saying goes. The truth is that everyone makes mistakes, especially when they’re just starting out in a particular line of work. This is especially true where search engine optimization (SEO, for short) is concerned, as this process involves a lot of tricky operations where things can easily go wrong.

For instance, one of the most common mistakes that people make is trying to get as many links as possible, from wherever they can. This action might seem helpful at first glance, because it will indeed allow their site to have a great number of incoming links. Instead, it might be best for people to concentrate on getting a few links from sites that have high rankings, as that can generally be considered a trustworthy characteristic.

Another very dangerous mistake that you can make is to not pay enough attention to the content that gets published on your website. This means allowing texts with grammatical errors or typos to go through, either because of a lack of attention or because your copywriter isn’t proficient enough. Also, the person who writes your articles should be enthusiastic about your products and should have some basic marketing knowledge, so as to know how the clients’ minds work.

Failing to create a site map can also be considered quite a big mistake, because this little accessory can actually make the difference in some cases. Firstly, site maps are very useful because they allow search engines to reach every page on your website. Secondly, if you ever find yourself in a situation where you need to restructure your site, the map will help you not to lose track of anything important. Therefore, if your website doesn’t have a map yet, don’t hesitate to create one so that your business won’t have to suffer in the future.

In the end, keep in mind that the most important thing is not to dwell on your mistakes for too long. Instead, you ought to spend your time trying to fix the damage you have already done (if that is the case) and attempt to learn more so that, in the future, you won’t be put in the same situation again. However, if the damage is too large for you to undo on your own, feel free to contact a specialized search engine optimization agency that can help you with your website.
