SEO bloopers happen all the time. Do not make the same, common mistakes, that everyone else makes. You can do that by following the following simple things, and you will not tumble into the same pits as others have.

Firstly, do not depend on automatic submissions. While manual submission takes time, the continuous gains in traffic flow are well worth the trouble. Automatic submissions fall short of success, and often leave your website's submission to search engines in the bottom of the trash bin. This does not help traffic reach your website.

In addition, images are NOT your best friend. Do not freely scatter them on your website. Use them sparingly. Use them to emphasize or enhance descriptions. They take too long to load, which will drive traffic away, anyway. It also takes away from the text, which is what search engine optimization is all about.

Next, do not pile too many keywords into your text. For best results, use your keywords a few times in documents. Search engines have demoted sites for using keywords in extreme multiples in short documents, so do not make this mistake.

Subsequently, do not pack too many keywords into your meta tags. This trick is no longer effective. What search engines look for is the incorporation of the keywords into the content of the website and its documents. Too many in your meta tags can get your website permanently banned from search engines, so take extreme care when planning your meta tags.

Moreover, do not be ignorant of submission policies and processes. Each search engine's policies are different, as is their submission process. Find out what the process is for each search engine and follow it to the letter. Read their policies, so that when it is time to update the search engine's results, you know how to go about this, how often you can do this, and when the best time would be. This will increase your chances of having better results than if you were to go about it blindly.

Furthermore, do not jump into offers that are too good to be true from so-called SEO experts. They will make promises that seem wonderful, charge you more than you need to pay, and then fail to follow through on those promises… and you will not get the results you desire even if they DID follow through. When in doubt, do without.

Finally, do not neglect your title tag! This helps searchers identify with your website right away, and if it has what they are looking for, you are sure to get results. As well, in an ideal world, search engines will put their weight behind sites that have a title tag that clearly identifies their site's business themes right from the start.

There are other bloopers that many others make when it comes to search engine optimization. These are the basic seven mistakes. These mistakes do not have to be yours. Take the time to learn more about SEO and your site will be a success.
