    Hey I read the post of yours it was pretty amazing. I would like to know that deleting any post is also bad seo practice?

      Hi Xaif

      Not, deleting posts is not a bad seo practice. If it’s not a good post, you can delete it or you can redirect it to some other related post on your website.

    love this Article, straight to the point! I have been in SEO for 4 years and every year I hear the same old people say “SEO is dead”….ummm well those people aren’t actually anything to do with SEO and have no idea the power it holds!

    SEO is one of the most credible ways to get your website seen and to generate third-phase customers, the ones READY to buy! Any business owner who overlooks this are playing with fire, simple.

      Hi Keenan

      True, you need good quality backlinks but you need to get them the proper way (natural links) and not otherwise.

    Our website is being punished by Google (not a Manual Action) and I’m trying to cleanse our backlink profile. I found links to Links2go and it seems it’s a paid site. although they have great UR & DR (according to AHREFS).

    Should I have it removed? There are 34 links pointing to us, which seems excessive for a directory :/

  13. Arindam Basu says

    I wonder, how to handle content like a block of disclaimer text, which is exactly same content for every pages. Will it destroy SEO? If it does, what should we do to tackle this problem?

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Arindam

      That should not be an issue at all. You can keep you disclaimer text in your pages.

      Hope this helps

    Great article and very accurate for all the points. Strongly believe in the motto content is king, and excellent content should be held as key to any SEO campaign.

  15. Richard says

    Hi Alex,

    Great article and point 6 is very important. User experience is now a major part of keeping rankings once you have them, and to many ads above the fold is not good. Whatever the searcher is looking for should be in clear view without the need to scroll.

  16. Minakshi Srivastava says

    Hi Alex,

    Bad SEO practices are not something new.Many people tend to follow some wrong SEO strategies and end up losing their potential clients.By the way great job on the article.
