If you have a business website, you most likely receive lots of SEO companies that promise to make your website more SEO compliant. Some of these companies claim to know secrets to greatly improve your SEO rankings. What they may fail to tell you is that some of their techniques can have the opposite effect. Those end up getting you banned from many search engines!


Whenever an SEO company meets with you, ask to see an example of their work. Check that site out yourself. For instance, does it get lots of internet traffic? A quick check of Quantcast can allow you to check and compare that site traffic to your own. If the website traffic seems low (or lower than your own website), look at the page they gave to you as an example and look for some of these "tricks"!

 

1. Using invisible text

 


A lot of SEO companies try to put invisible text on their web pages by making the text color same as the background color. Almost all search engines can easily detect this and the next time you submit a web page for your website, it will straight away go to the trash without ever being crawled or looked at by a human.


2. Repeating keywords

 

Lots of SEO companies repeat certain keywords all over the page especially concentrating at the bottom of the page in very small fonts. Again try this only if you want to get banned from the search engines.

3. Using unrelated keywords  

 

If you site is about selling products, then over flooding your web page with references to Justin Beiber will not help you. Lets say it gets you #1 rank on Google for keyword "Justin Beiber". If someone is looking for information about Justin Beiber, and they end up on your website, do you think they will buy products? The answer is probably no. I have no idea why someone would do this! Doing this not only increases your chances of getting banned by search engines, but if you ever do get listed using irrelevant keywords, you are not targeting your customer base.

4. Linking using link farms

 

This means interconnecting all your pages to give the feeling of a lot of information being available on the web site. When a search engine crawls through your website, it creates a history of your site better than you could imagine. It knows exactly how many pages you actually have. How many link are there just to fool the search engine crawler, and a lot of other such information.

5. Over submitting keywords

 

Lots of SEO companies repeat certain keywords all over the page generally concentrating at the bottom of the page in very small fonts. Again try this only if you want to get banned from the search engines.


Last Thoughts

 

What some SEO companies fail to understand is that compared to the 30 minutes to an hour they spend trying to fool the search engines, the search engines are spending countless hours and hundreds of dollars to filter those pages out of their index. If you see any of the techniques above being used, show the guy to the door because they are trying to scam you!
