So many sites provide so much information about search engine optimization, so it's sometimes difficult to understand what to do and what not to do to optimize your website for search engines. You can really be stuck if you are new to SEO. I'm going to help you put your knowledge in order by telling you about the most common SEO myths and giving some useful tips as one goes.

  • SEO can't be done by one person. Why not? Of course, search engine optimization consists of two aspects — on-site and off-site optimization, but it doesn't mean you can't do this alone. Simply learn search engine optimization basics and you are ready to make a start. You can read the articles on our blog or find search engine optimization related articles on the Internet. You should not expect to understand all the wisdom of search engine optimization at once. You'll be learning it gradually as far as you'll be gaining experience in this field.
  • Good meta tags will do all the things for you. Your website content and meta tags do matter for search engine optimization. You can read how to write good meta tags for your website in this article on our blog. But you can't sit quietly waiting for the meta tags to do all the rest for you. On-site optimization is only a part of the work. To get your website higher in search results, you have to build links to your site. You can write and post articles, submit press releases, comment on blogs, submit your site to directories to get backlinks.
  • Black Hat SEO techniques is what you need. At first sight it seems that Black Hat SEO tactics [keyword stuffing, invisible text, doorway page, blog and forum spamming etc.] are the right way to go. But stop and think. We can't deny Black Hat SEO works and you will get your website rank high in search engines… but for a short period until your site is banned for using those unethical techniques. But you are aiming at long term results, aren't you? So, it's not worth risking your website reputation. Follow efficient legal search engine optimization techniques to get your website ranked higher, and avoid anything looking like Black Hat SEO.
  • SEO will instantly lift your site on top. We all dream of quick results but search engine optimization does not guarantee an instant success. Be patient, optimize your website content and meta tags for search engines, build backlinks steadily and eventually you will see the results you are looking for.
  • You can stop doing SEO once your site is #1. It's a myth that a well optimized website does not need your attention anymore. Search engine optimization is a never ending process. It's about consistency. Probably a well optimized website requires less time and efforts than a brand new site but you can't abandon it forever. You should still work to maintain high search engines ranking and consistent human traffic to your site.

With that said, before you start with search engine optimization, take your time to study the information, separate the husk from the grain and use the SEO techniques that will help you succeed with your website in the perspective.
