Debunking 8 Common SEO Myths

SEO is like doing a hard but an interesting puzzle. It may be complicated, but the satisfaction and the rewards of nailing that puzzle are enormous.

Now, with any puzzle, you usually have all the pieces you need to complete it. Sometimes, however, even when a piece you need is right in front of you, you aren’t able to see it.

It’s the same thing with SEO. You see, there are many myths and misconceptions floating around in the SEO industry. You may aim to do things right, but you end up choosing to do something different because some “gurus” shared information about SEO that they aren’t even sure about.

The way some people do SEO is they follow age-old techniques such as keyword stuffing, spamming, and by spinning articles, which used to work in 2012. Now, when they obviously fail to rank, they end up making some cold statements like SEO no longer works or that it’s dead.

This really ticks me off, and I believe it’s a huge demotivator for people who are genuinely interested in learning SEO.

It’s evident that Google likes to toy with our websites like a kid in a sandbox (I am sure that panda, penguin, hummingbird and the other animals from the Google’s zoo agree with me on this one).

Knowing this, we certainly cannot afford to jeopardize our website‘s ranking by following wrong information shared by so-called “professionals” and propagated by unwitting newbies.

To counter this misinformation, I have researched the eight most common myths floating around the industry; legends often found on online forums, blogs, and other media. I’ve made an effort to debunk them in the form of an interesting infographic.

What I want for you to understand is that SEO, just like any good thing, works only for those who are patient, those who keep on experimenting and those who are always keen on expanding their knowledge on the subject. I hope this will help answer most of your questions.

Please share this knowledge with your friends and other bloggers in your network and please do leave a comment below if you have any other disastrous myths to share, have questions for me or would like to make a counter-argument. Our readers and I would love to hear what you have to say.
