Three SEO Don'ts Straight From Google

April 30, 2012  
When you work in SEO, it might seem that Google is always trying to trip you up. But that's not really the case, argues Brandignity: "They don't dislike all SEOs because ... we actually help catalog information and pages; that in turn helps their search identify which pages make sense to showcase."

In fact, the search engine giant is more than happy to give advice—such as a video from Google's Developer Programs Tech Lead Maile Ohye, in which she discusses common errors that SEOs make.

Here are three:

Working on SEO before your site has a value proposition. What sets your company, product, or service apart from your competition? Perhaps your retail shop is the city's oldest independent dealer, offers free repair estimates—or is actually a nonprofit business. "If you want to stay on top," Ohye advises, "searchers need a value prop to click on your site, to come back and revisit your site, and to recommend your site to their friends."


Implementing SEO strategy from an isolated silo. Tear down those walls. With open communication among your marketing, business development, and SEO teams, your optimization efforts properly address the entire user experience—from marketing campaign to conversion. "And, potentially, repeat business," Ohye adds.

    Another mistake, and a very common one indeed, is to write content for search engines as opposed to with your readers in mind. Up until a few years ago this strategy could have worked in boosting your rank however now it not only does not work, but can be detrimental to your brand.
