SEO Myths That Will Not Confuse You Anymore


Myth #1.
SEO is a scam
Perhaps this most harmful of myths stems from those who seeking quick and easy wins with a very little effort. Indeed, there are cases of SEO wins that meet these criteria, typically when a site has easily correctable technical problems. In other cases,
SEO involves real effort and commitment which often pays additional rewards beyond the increase in traffic.
You may use semrush.com to find tons of samples when your competitors are getting good traffic doing only SEO and content.
Myth #2.
Google will find out that I'm doing SEO and than....
Google is smart, but not magic.
Google and other search engines strive to mimic human behavior in evaluating content and use human generated signals (such as links and engagement metrics) to crawl and rank results.
In addition, Google does not prohibit using any SEO agency.
You will find info about that below.
Myth #3.
Link building is dead (again) :)
Almost each year we hear that link building is dead now.
But, it you search for the statistic data provided by many top SEO agencies and marketers, you will find that link building is still the most important factor.



Myth #4.
Google hates SEO
1. Google readily states that SEO can "potentially improve your site and save time" and that many SEO agencies "provide useful services." Google even advises "If you're thinking about hiring an SEO, the earlier the better."
2. Google published their own SEO Starter Guide. While a bit out of date, it certainly encourages people to take advantage of SEO techniques to improve search visibility.
While Google seems to encourage search engine optimization, it almost certainly hates manipulative SEO. The type of SEO meant to trick search engines into believing false popularity and relevancy signals in order to rank content higher.
Myth #5.
PageRank is the best SEO metric.
So why is the problem with PageRank?
1. Toolbar PageRank, the PageRank most SEOs talk about, will likely never be updated again.
2. PageRank correlates poorly with search engine rankings, to the point that we quit studying it long ago.
3. PageRank is easy to manipulate.

5 Ebook Creation Mistakes That Will Hurt Your Business

Today I want to uncover a few common mistakes you MUST avoid in the product creation process so you will make you more sales and profits. Mistake 1. Not Thinking About Your "Back-End" A back-end can be an OTO (one-time-offer) which your customer will see after the purchase of the front end product. But you can also profit from the back-end by including links to other products inside your ebook or referring to a website in your audio etc. You'll be leaving a lot of money on the table if you don't plan out a back-end. Mistake 2. Using Crappy Old PLR A lot of marketers will find old PLR reports and articles and put them together to sell. If you use PLR (private label rights), make sure you go over the content and fix any information that is out of date and also check any links to websites to make sure they work. If you're ebook is on a topic that is constantly being updated like technology, iPhone or Sony PSP, then frequent updates are necessary too. Many marketers make 6 fi…
