Bad formulas, bad results: Bad SEO practice can sink your website

SEO

As always, it is a pleasure to have you here for another new blog article. This time, we will be discussing how certain bad practices in SEO management can literally sink your website. It may seem like a somewhat extreme statement, but the truth is that SEO is perhaps the most important aspect of any website. This section determines how many visits we will have and, consequently, how attractive or competitive it will be when wanting to integrate Google AdSense ads or secure advertising contracts.

Below, we present examples of what you SHOULD NOT do when it comes to bad SEO practices, so take note because we’ve already started.

Copying and pasting content on our website:

This is one of the bad SEO practices that frequently occur and basically consists of copying and pasting content from other websites without having the copyright or the simple consent of the person from whom we are copying. Needless to say, in addition to being an unfair practice, it is penalized by Google, which has become an expert in detecting plagiarism on websites almost instantly.

Using too many keywords in your sections or blog articles:

Without a doubt, this is one of the bad practices in SEO that are mostly committed without bad faith, since we assume that the more keywords we place, the higher the chances of appearing in Google results will be. However, over the years, the algorithms responsible for analyzing websites have become more efficient. If they notice an excess of keywords, a penalty will be imposed in the search results.

SPAM:

Although there are currently countless services dedicated to combating SPAM, many website owners insist on continuing with this practice of posting highly artificial comments with a link that redirects to the content they want to promote. Let’s be honest, this practice can cause more problems than benefits in the long run.

Another bad practice in SEO, unfortunately very popular, is buying links to increase the presence of a website in Google results. Nowadays, Google has perfected its algorithm to detect those links that are not necessarily related to content or quality, thus leading to a possible penalty for purchasing links solely to increase SEO, rather than providing quality content and value to readers.

Remember, don’t choose the easy way (Bad SEO practice):

Although you may often feel tempted to engage in some of these practices to obtain good SEO results in less time, remember that what comes easily, goes easily. So, the healthiest way to achieve success with your website is to be persistent and studious of what you are doing in order to make progress without the fear of being penalized by Google and thereby completely destroying everything you’ve achieved.
