SEO – 5 SEO Myths You Can’t Listen to if You Want to Succeed

 

SEo - Search Engine OptimizationDo you think you’re taking the right approach to building your business at the moment? You have probably read hundreds of SEO articles and most of the stuff you read wasn’t exactly the stone cold truth.

It might have made you feel warm and fuzzy inside, but if it’s results you’re after you need to know how success is really achieved. We’re going to look at a few myths you might have come across because you will know to ignore it from now on. Just stick to the stuff that works.

 

Choose perfect keywords

 

Don’t listen to anyone who tells you it’s possible to rank without building backlinks if you choose the right keywords. They are probably just trying to sell you keyword research software, or they could just be delusional. It’s possible to rank for certain keywords, but it will only last for a while and as soon as someone else targets the same keywords and builds backlinks your business could be ruined. You must try to build backlinks if you want long-term success.

 

Build it and they will come

You don’t even need to promote your content because everyone will be falling over themselves to do it for you. If you build it your future fans will somehow know they should visit your site even though they’ve never been there in their life. The only truth is that you can’t just build something. You need to spend 80% of your time trying to share your content with the world and only then will you have a chance of succeeding.

 

Write epic content

 

Then you get the people who tell you writing epic content is the only thing you need. You can’t just build something and expect people to come, but if you write epic content it’s somehow different. Do you want me to let you in on a little secret? There are millions of amazing articles lying there doing nothing because people don’t just promote them. If you want your readers to build backlinks for you it’s vital you ask them to share your work.

 

You can rank for anything

It’s not just a case of building backlinks and ranking for any keyword you desire. Even if you build millions of amazing backlinks there will always be someone out there who will beat you in the rankings. Do you know why you don’t stand a chance ranking for certain keywords? You don’t stand a chance because someone out there will be able to spend a lot more money than you, so they will always win.

 

More content equals better results

I hope you don’t think it’s important to publish as many pieces of content as possible. If you publish thousands of articles you will rank for a huge amount of keywords, or at least that is what you’ve been told. You’re a lot safer writing fewer pieces of content and building a healthy amount of backlinks to each one. Writing thousands of articles will just waste too much of your time.
