12 SEO Strategies that No Longer Work

Most SEO strategies have been buried.     seo strategies

Would you like to know them…?

Search engine optimization is a fluid, ever-changing set of best practices.

Since Google gets the lion’s share of search queries in the US, it only makes sense that SEO gurus appease Google’s algorithms while putting others (like Bing and Yahoo!) on the back burner.

Of course, Google isn’t totally transparent with how their algorithms work so there’s no cheat sheet to really make the most of your SEO.

However, the company (and Matt Cutts, Google’s spam master) has been very vocal about what not to do.

Call them black hat tricks or just outdated practices; it’s pretty easy to mess up your SEO strategy. It’s why you should always depend on a reputable SEO firm to take care of business, and only do the basic tasks yourself.

Not confident that you know the latest SEO tips? Start by looking at what not to do—here are a dozen outdated, wrong or flat out illegal means of SEO that don’t work any longer

1.   Duplicate content

There’s a big difference between duplicate content and well-translated multilingual pages.

If your website won’t pass Copyscape (well worth the subscription), then Google will catch you. Copying and pasting chunks of content isn’t just lazy and lead to poor quality, you’ll also get slapped with a Google penalty.

2.   Keyword stuffing

Google wants you to naturally and organically include keywords and phrases into your content.

This can be pretty challenging to do, especially if one of your keywords is long-tail, incredibly niche and just doesn’t seem to work.

Awkward content leads to awkward experiences for your user, and will hurt your search rankings.

 3.   Short-tail keywords

It’s the era of long-tail keywords, or keyword “themes” as Google calls them, so forget about short and sweet.

Not only does it help you stay more competitive to use something like “tips for house flipping Tampa” compared to “house flipping,” it also better matches searches to websites like yours.

4.   Putting in links then forgetting about them

Both inbound and outbound links can be a great way to maximize your SEO, but not if you don’t stay on top of them.

Just because you at one time linked an authority landing page to your website doesn’t mean that authority site still passes muster. Check your links to make sure they’re working and quality on a regular basis.

5.   Review bombing

What’s an easy way to get positive mentions of your website all over the internet? “Bomb” review sites and try to make it look like they’re all genuine reviews.

This can work in the very short term, but there are many red flags algorithms (not to mention actual users) can spot. Instead, focus on garnering real positive reviews which is the slow and steady way to win.

 6.   Buying multiple domains

There are times when this strategy works, such as when you’re a multinational business that needs to have different domains in different languages for different countries.

However, if this is a means of pursuing duplicate content, don’t bother. More isn’t always more with SEO.

7.   Forgetting about images and videos

There was a time when SEO was all about written content, and for the most part that’s still true.

However, algorithms today can “read” things like infographics and video/image descriptions are avenues for SEO gold.

Just make sure you use quality written content whenever possible to marry images and written text.

8.   Ignoring Meta descriptions

Perhaps the most overlooked of all SEO opportunities, meta descriptions are those brief lines of text that pop up with your search queries.

It’s like the teaser or trailer to your website, but it can do so much more than let a searcher know your site is the best match for them.

It’s also an opportunity to include long-tail keywords, which (should be) exactly what your viewers are looking for.

9.   Invisible text tricks

“Invisible text” is just what it sounds like: It’s invisible to the average website visitor, but still exists on a website in order to illegally boost rankings.

However, just because your viewers can’t see it doesn’t mean Google can’t. Those algorithms can read ghost text just fine.

10.   Swapping speed for images

Of course you want any images on a web site to be relevant and high quality—but not at the cost of slowing down your website.

Google considers website speed when ranking websites and you should, too. The slower the website, the lower your rankings so strike a balance.

11.   Thinking mobile readiness doesn’t matter

It’s 2014 and there are more Americans on mobile devices than desktop. Your site needs responsive design and mobile readiness in order to stay competitive.

Otherwise, it might be slow or display incorrectly which doesn’t just annoy users, but also lowers your SEO rankings.

12.   Focusing less on quality and more on quantity

If you have to choose between the two, quality trumps quantity.

Yes, it would be nice to add a few more pages to your site (that’s opportunities for long-tail keywords), but not if the quality isn’t there.

Content is king with SEO, and the royal won’t be knocked off the throne anytime soon.

Focus on white hat tactics and understand that SEO is an evolution. Like yoga, it’s a practice that will never be perfected.

  1. Agree with you bro. Google is releasing many of its animals lately. So each step should be taken with utmost care.

  2. It's really good one. I got more information from this topic. Thank you

  3. In my Opinion Unique and Catchy content wil do all the work as google probhibits Duplicate content and their must be some of the Eye Catchy Heading also trending..

    Wish u all Happy Easter 2015 

  4. Changing seo strategies time to time is must for every blogger. At this time you must focus on higher speed of website and responsive design also.

  5. You are not currently following any blogs. Use the "Add" button to enter blogs that you'd like to follow in your Reading List.

  6. Best and we can say very common SEO strategies you have shared here. 

  7. Thanks for this article I was still using the key words for every site of mine , but now I try to exclude them and ad more write content and original imagines and videos ! The content is the king and the quality of the content is very important for SEO ! The SEO is changing constantly and articles like this one are very welcome for webmasters !

  8. Really nice information. Rather than focusing more on off page seo, on page seo should be taken into consideration first. We should work smart rather than working hard. Thanks for making this post. 

  9. The seo strategies arent so much always favourable these days as the strategies are being leaked out by the bloggers so it has now bceom the war of hard work and some secret link resources . If you think i am wrong then please do reply! 

  10. It’s really a nice and helpful piece of info. I’m glad that you just shared this helpful info with us. Please keep us informed like this. Thanks for sharing.

    I would also add (as a 13th Seo strategy that do not work anymore) "buying links", wich worked for many years but now it has become very dangerous (easy to get a penalty for that :)).

  23. I have found so many nes things in thi spost that i don't know about some of seo techniques like invisble text trick and more thanx for nice post i bookmark your blog for future reading keep writing 

  24. Really exciting information and while all the reading I have feel that this blog is really informative all those quality that qualify a blog to be an excellent.

  25. Got your point… Well written article… Will follow you on Social on networks also…Thanks for sharing

  26. Yet another great article, so many great points, and high quality consistency is a key.  I use a great saying for my clients when telling them about their online marketing efforts, "If you can't say anything good about it, then don't say anything at all." Even if they hate something, saying nothing. Prevents hot headed discussions that usually are bad for publicity and are sometimes very hard to remove. They should be adding to the web, not taking it away.

     

     

     

    1. Thank you Young for coming over. I appreciate your comments.

    2. Hey

      Amazing points you shared with us to post. i’ll gonna follow these tips on my blog with keep in mind.

      Thanks for post

      1. Informative!

        For me the best SEO strategy is to work for quality and instead go for backlinks, try to focus on content and user enagagment, backlinks will flow in an automated way

      2. Exactly, Posting duplicate content is nothing but a mere waste of time only. No SEO techniques works properly with copied content.

        Valuable info.

      3. Great article again from your blog. It’s true, there are so many SEO practices that must be dealt with. I appreciate your post.

    this article contains a lots for the infant professionals. knowledgeable and full of informations. i got somthing new to step forward. keep going, visit again to read some more nice articles

    1. Greetings to Content marketing Team… Best part of your article was about Links…

      One thing is sure a Dead or Broken links can definitely impact your Web SEO and broken or keyword stuffing can also lead to Penalty too..

      Have you found any SEO Impact among Length of articles?

      Other wise.. Well Written article bro..

    2. I believe that if you do anything right, according to Google rules, there is no way you get punished and your blog will definitely rank great. I agree with all the successful strategies states, such as to avoid duplicate content, images that make the loading speed of your page slow, etc. I consider that short tail keywords are obsolete now and it is hard to rank with them cause of too much competition.

  27. Great article but I thought there might be a little secret trick you were going to disclose, non the less, excellent article!!

  28. In the overall picture SEO is basically still the same. I have noticed that it looks for and punishes anything close to link farm postings. In Local SEO, it now rewards YELP directory listings Back links need to be done manually with a variety of key words on high page rank do follow sites.

  29. I agree with the points you have shared in this blog post. This is an informative and useful post… This being the first time of landing here, I’m impressed 🙂

  30. Keyword stuffing has strictly been spammed by Google now days and I rather prefer to use matching keywords rather than inserting the same keyword a lot of times .Thanks fro the great post.

  31. Hey buddy Thanks for sharing this awesome SEO Tips with us. Espically I loved the One about Optimizing images and videos also Keyword Stuffing. I will Love to Share these tips with my friends.

    1. Thanks to Google for making such an advanced algorithms to make this online world spam free.

      Back in 2005-05 such techniques were working and people made hell lots of money by putting very less effforts, but as the internet is growing spamming is also growing.

      Thanks a lot for putting efforts to list all these methods which are no more working now. This post is going to help all SEO experts who are working on their own or client's websites.

        I think we need radical changes in our content marketing strategies since google recent algorithm updates. What used to work before in terms of SEO is no longer applicable. We need to check for broken links, disavow bad links, update outdated content from past posts!

    • mike
    • January 6, 2015

    Hi , Lovely startegies even I did the same mistakes when I started my blogging career, thanks for recalling those bad memories 🙂 very nice points to beware of this blogging.

  36. Great list!

  37. Keyword stuffing has never worked and will never will, more generic keywords in any post do drive traffic but Google can clearly see stuffed keywords. 

  38. Content is very important but the link building plan is also need more skills to do at all.

  39. A big focus I think we need to make with SEO in the near future is getting the technical elements right but also working on making our sites places our audience want to spend their time with great design & content too

    • Abdul

    Its a good post, now seo has changed a lot and rather then stuck with old techniques we should try to experiment with new which is working otherwise we will be left behind and our competitors will win the race, you have mentioned some of the very common old techniques which is still in use by many seo's thanks for creating awareness.

    SEO still needs to be managed carefully as a core sales/leads driver, that means dedicated specialists who understand crawling, duplicate content, on-page and off-page ranking signals. In particular you need specialists who can mine the analytics to identify opportunity or problems from SEO.

    1. really informative information will and i will surel imply these strategties 🙂

  44. Thanks for discussing all the important things about #SEO.

    Amazing article about seo, i like the way you describe the Meta Description which usually not cared off!!

    1. These works only we implement them accurately and efficientely

  45. This is all reputable advice and I agree that quality is king when it comes to SEO. You should offer your audience something value and not just try to sell something. Take your time a build a quality site that Google loves. 

    • Rosie
    • December 18, 2014

    Today user experience is most valueable thing for ranking up on search engines.SE love the user exeperince to rank high to website and we know that only one way to improve user experience   & that is quality.

  56. Hi Michael,
    This is such type of topic you have go through in this post is something that very blogger wants to touch. But you have done a splendid job by giving a thorough discussion and deep information over here. Thanks alot !!

    1. Thanks Areesha. If you need any other thing, just let me know.

  57. I agree on everything but the 8, about meta description: surely it helps a lot the users, so it should be used, but for my experience I don’t think it can give you a boost in serp: maybe 10 years ago, now not any more.The tag title is ten times much more useful for seo reasons. A site without meta can go along quite fine. Of course just IMHO. Anyway thanks a lot for the article and your advice, your blog is great, that’s the first time I visit it. Sorry for any possibile mispell: I’m italian, from Rome.

    Andrea

    1. I Understand Andrea. Thanks for reading.

  60. Great Post man it is really helpful, even i am the victim of some of these mistakes. Your article will really help me in improving tactics with SEO optimization.

  61. Hi,

    True, Most of the new bloggers and even some experienced ones are still focusing on quantity of post they post per day on their blog. They actually believe that if they will push 5-10 posts per day their blog authority will increase.

    I actually don’t agree to the point. Google keep saying that it loves quality content and I don’t think people who post 5-10 posts per day could maintain the same quality in each of their post. I prefer to write a detailed article rather to write multiple 500 words articles.

    Regards
    Tauseef Alam

    1. And that’s why they’re beginners. They still need to learn.

  62. Hi Mate

  63. Hello Michael,

    Thank you for making it easy to understand for new bloggers.
    What i think here, not only google wants new content but readers are also hungry for new content they like to read different and new topics with new content.
    When we are focus to increase the quality of writing same time we should not ignore the quantity..
    Thank you 🙂

    1. I personally I i Dont Like duplicate content   or keyword suffling etc its all spamming  i seen google no longer with these type of website but its really a nice reading article

    Hi Michael,
    Your 12 points are well understood, in time past i had fallen victim of some of this stuff you mentioned above, thanks for a reminder to be focused once more.

    May i use this medium to inform you that i have listed your great blog amongst Nigerian Bloggers List in my blog @ http://www.oracleblogger.com

    1. Wow, thank you Mr. Oracle for listing my blog. I’m grateful to you.

      1. yes i found always informative article on this site regularly

        1. Great Post, also sharing the site of Facebook dont boosts up the post nowadays. 

          The only way to rank a blog these days according to the Google Algorithm is Quality and Quantity as well. Google changes its Algo always so better focus of Content because Content is King 🙂
          Thank You 

          Happy Blogging 😀 

          1. You know what is best about this post? Every point is explained in a nice manner.

            Recently Google gave out a news that now it is going to rank websites over its truthfulnes, not over its links which is a bad news for spammers who provide low quality content but get high rankings due to high amount of links they get.

  68. Very helpful post! The explanations are very simple and easily understandable! These tips will be very useful to me for SEO on a new site that I just realized! Thanks so much!

  69. Many new bloggers doing these mistakes you have mentioned here. That’s why many bloggers quit blogging in few months.

    This is about your 12th point. There is no doubt that quality is better than quantity. But we can’t forget the quantity. Google wants fresh content. We have to give it.

    1. Exactly why we wrote the post. Thank you very much Raplus.

      1. Seo strategies are now so common. The ranking is based on the secrets known but now there arent any left. All secrets are revelaed by blogging websites. Thus ranking is just now a little money spent and hard work + focus. Nothing else.

        1. I think you’re right friend. 

          1. nice article.

          You are right bro…I think you know much about SEO. Keep working hard like this to get good rankings in the search engine.

          1. Thanks sir, best article which i ever read till now on seo strategies. You really awesome and unique strategies.

      2. As i have stated earlier seo is likely to be messed up as SEO is mainly about the secrets that are leaked out by the most of the people through seo blogs. Now ranking is much in competition.

         

      3. I think keeping your content long and include all the LSI keywords including on which you are writing is still working and this always works because on page and content writing is best seo process.

       After Google's most recent local algorithm update, the rules have changed for local SEO. Short tail keywords going very well but long tail keywords take extra time . How much ?
