SEO Myths And Wrong Concepts - Revised

Its a routine for us, seoz, that someone presents a theory that opposes the prior concepts of Search Engine Optimization and then a long debate start about that theory. And to be honest we do find some very useful info from these debates. But since every thing has a negative aspect too, many wrong concepts too become popular and get promoted by these speeches.

Its a fact that not each strategy is gonna work for everybody. So there may be arguments over it, but in general I found that these concepts are nothing but wrong. Working since 2005 in Internet marketing field, I have worked in different niches and when come to these points I can safely say that they are not as they are told.

1. NoFollow Doesn't Help You In Ranking
It Does dudes, Believe me it does...I have experimented it long time ago and now many Seoz are saying the same thing. For your convenience, here is a food for thought.

A nofollow link from 5 pagerank page which have .edu tld :)
what you say? isn't it gonna help you in ranking?

2. Internal Linking Is Your Navigational Structure
No not at all.

Your navigational structure or menu isn't enough for Strong Internal Linking. Making internal linking strong is something else. Its a link from within the content of one page of your website to the other page of your website.

3. You have to wait for at least 6 months for Good RANKING
Yes I mean ranking. Its really not necessary that you have to wait for 6 months to get good ranking in search engines. And even if your domain is new :)
I have done it and I am doing it.

4. Pagerank Is Not A Major Factor When You Go Out For Link Hunting
It is. Yes I know that many seoz including me not recommended it all the time but in general it do play an important role in your website ranking. Do the experiments and you will see how right this statement is :)

5. A Relevant Link Is ALWAYS From A Relevant Site
Not Always. A strong relevant link is within the relevant content pointing to a relevant site. Its not necessary that the topic of the site on which content is and the topic of the site to which link is pointing should be same.

6. Google Is Human
Its not. It don't give a shit bout your website value when ranking it unless you want to rank your website on 1st slot within a week on really competitive keywords or niche. Don,t believe me?
Check the results for the term mesothelioma in Google ;)

7. Old SEO TRICKS Don't Work Anymore
They do! In real they do. I have read an article some time ago that traditional ways of Search Engine Optimization (Off Page) like directory, forum, article submissions etc don't work anymore now. For your information sir, they do..

8. Social Media Sites Will Replace Search Engines
Its not possible for a tleast 5 years. Why?
How you gonna find social community of your interest ;)

9. SEO Is DEAD..SEO'z Future is not Bright


10. Content is King..
the most controversial, the most debatable

But Yes, it can be wrong.
You are thinking I am crack. Don't ya?

Well I know no one gonna believe it. And anyone can safely say that its content that make or break a site but If you want only ranking(you plan to sell the site afterwards or place links) than focus on links cause Links still play more major role in ranking than content of the site. I know that its your content that attracts links but if you have a database of some thousand pages indexed in Google and you have a little evil mind you can get on top ranking with content from nonsense generator ;). Google algo is based on Links and it remains same unless they introduce a voting system and in other words make the Google.. Social. :)

11. Google is not collecting your personnel info :P

It is. so cheer up

and yes the word Black Hat still makes me excited.

Note : Its my opinions and I am not saying that they are the last words. DO EXPERIMENTS and I am really grateful to you if you care to share those with us here.
