What are the Top 3 SEO Myths of Today? #ASKIrfan [S01E05]

ASKIrfan - Top SEO Myths

In each #ASKIrfan episode, I will be answering various questions that I get asked from time to time. 

In this inaugural #ASKIrfan episode, I answer the question:

What are the Top 3 SEO Myths of Today?

 

In my view, the biggest SEO myths of today are:

  • SEO is D.E.A.D.
    To paraphrase an alleged statement of Mark Twain, the reports of SEO's death are greatly exaggerated
  •  
     
  • SEO is only about writing content (with keywords stuffed in it).
    And/or backlinks are NOT important; just mindlessly sprinkle some non-sensical keywords in your article. 
  •  
     
  • SEO is cheap.
    And/or, SEO means spammy content, and even spammier backlinks.

  • Why good SEO isn't cheap, and what spammy tricks bad SEO providers use to provide you cheap, I mean, BAD SEO services to you 
  • 2
  • What makes backlinking extremely critical to attaining sustainable and 'free' organic traffic (and NO we ain't talking about low-quality, irrelevant backlinks harvested through software or spammy VAs).
