Default Common SEO Mistakes

The Google is updating their algorithm on a regular basis and the SEO strategy also gets changed day by day. Not it is more important to do quality link building for ranking and traffic to your website.

I would like to invite you all with their knowledge to share their knowledge on SEO and put some common mistakes in SEO, so that readers can get some useful information.

The below are the common mistakes:

1. Creating content for search engines and forgetting their users.
2. Building backlinks in a wide range, posting all the places in the internet neither targeting the right spot where their targeted traffic is coming.
3. No content in above the fold area'
4. Poor internal link structure
5. Using scraped content

The biggest mistake is the over optimization mistake. SEO doesn't mean to stuff keywords in the title, heading or meta tags.

Yes I agree with your points. Yes these are all the things that harm a website and bring it down in the search results.

To me, almost all the things that you do to optimize your website for the sole purpose of pleasing any Search Engine is bound to be considered as a common SEO Mistake.

Even I had done so many mistakes while doing the SEO for the particular website, later I rectify my mistakes that I had made it the time when I was doing on page. Interlinking, I forgot to do interlinking with my content and constantly I do this same mistake..
