5 Reasons Why Your Search Engine Optimization Strategy Isn’t Working
search engine optimization

1 – You didn’t spend time and effort carefully researching your keywords, using only popular keywords instead of long tail keywords, and failing to research what your competition is doing.

2 – Failing to check if your website is search engine friendly, and checking to see what penalties already exist for your website on various search engines.

3 – Failing to give every single page on your website a short (under 70 characters), unique title tag which includes keywords that are also embedded in that page’s content, and then including little to no text within the page’s content.

4 – You have created entire pages using flash or Javascript, or placing the entirety of the content within an image.

5 – Using a quick method to gain links, such as creating a link page, buying a service from someone offering 100 links for $10, using “link building” software, or using a link buying broker.  These are invariably scams, and a waste of both time and money.

    These are definitely some good tips when you want to improve upon your SEO strategy. One I was particularly keen on was not spending the time and effort to carefully research the keyword. I think some people especially don’t do is pick a keyword that is specific toward the product he or she is promoting. And, although I haven’t ran into any pages doing number 4, that is definitely the first thing they should do if they have number 4 in place 😛
