Free SEO tips: Common Mistake Number 2

Free SEO tips: Common Mistake Number 2

So you have gotten over the fact that you are not famous and are realizing how this SEO thing works.
Quick recap on what is SEO? SEO or search engineoptimisation is the term used to get a high ranking on a search engine in the natural or organic section of the search. This is not for paid advertising.
Remember that Google is a librarian and that the web ,with its trillion websites is the world’s biggest library.
So the indexing needs to be done correctly. If you are looking for a detailed document on how to do SEO for Mobile and your website you can go to Google and look for the www.google.com/.../search-engine-optimization-starter-guide.pdf
If the above link is too complicated try coming to our free Google workshop and it will make  more sense.
But back to the topic at hand, the number 2 common mistake aside from you thinking youre famous and not having any SEO, is that you put too much on the title.

This is browser spamming. You don’t like spam nor do the search engines.  Select 2 or 3 items to sell on your site and make that the title, do not go over- board as PANDA will hunt you down. And based on what people are saying about the effects of the panda farmer updates you might not want to be caught in the cross-hairs.

This is a tough one—only selling 2 or 3 items per content page. Rather build more pages. Google will refer to a thin site as someone who only has 5 pages but in reality Google is looking for sites that have more than 200 pages of correctly indexed content.

So to recap:

You are not famous—put the service or product first separated by a pipe | (shift backslash) and then the name of your company.

Separate all the titles with a pipe and make sure that your headings and your titles are the same in English (Google is English)
