5 Common Mistakes in SEO (Video)

Mistake #1: No value proposition
Why would a user select my site in search result?

Mistake #2: Segmented approach
Instead approach online strategy holistically — aligned with larger business goals

and every department communicating.

Mistake #3: Time-consuming workarounds
Avoid rel=”canonical” from each component page in a series to page one.

Instead, use new rel=”next” and rel=”prev” makeup for paginated content!

Mistake #4: Caught in SEO trends
What’s the optimal keyword density for my content?
– Not a great focus, just write compelling stuff!

Mistake #5: Slow iteration

Aim to be agile.
1. Define metrics for success
2. Implement improvements
3. Measure impact
4. Create new improvement
5. Prioritize improvements based on market and personnel.

Repeat.
