Let’s talk SEO myths

There are a lot of myths out there about best SEO practices. 

Some of them are old and outdated, but some of them are just plain wrong!

So, let's talk about some of those SEO myths and what you should be doing instead. 

Links

The topic of SEO links is surrounded by a lot of misinformation. 

For example, did you know that having a lot of outgoing links actually doesn't help you much? It helps the website you are linking to, not you! It's not really hurting you either, but it's still good to know.

Instead, try to build backlinks!

Another myth says that too many backlinks too fast can lead to a penalization in SEO. That's not true as long as they are good quality backlinks. 

SEO is magic

Let's be honest – SEO isn't some magic, immediate cure all to help you rank higher. 

Many people begin doing SEO and expect results right away. Forbes said, "While SEO is powerful, it is not a magic potion that can turn your business around in just a matter of days or even weeks."

Instead, SEO is an investment that yields results over time. You might not see the results right away, but when you do see that growth the hard work will all be worth it. 

SEO never changes

This one just might be the easiest to fall for!

While there are some SEO principles that have remained pretty constant, there are also a lot of strategies that change! Keep reading, stay informed, and be willing to adapt.
