  1. Hi Timotheus, thanks for sharing! I couldn’t agree more with the taboos you have mentioned.

    Especially with google new updates in the recent years, keyword stuffing is getting punished real quick.

    Now google uses LSI which encourages high quality content and beginners should all know about this.


    1. Hi Hans. You’re welcome. And thanks for your feedback that these are Off Page SEO Techniques that people should avoid.

      Yes, LSI makes it all the more important to write naturally. That, and also for Voice Search.

      Have a great week! 🙂

  2. Great tips of things to avoid doing trying to improve your off page SEO Timotheus. Most of the things you mentioned are old hat never mind black hat:)

    I agree with the social media part, a lot of people try and spread themselves all over social media. As you say concentrate on one that suits your niche like yours with Pinterest for Asia Travel Gems. If they gave all their time they spend on social media to one only they would be able to build a following and also be able to interact with them more.

    I will take on board all 17 of your tips and I thank you for sharing.

    1. You’re welcome, Frank. Yes, many of the tactics in this list are old hat. But you will be surprised that many marketers, business owners, SEO experts or even digital marketing agencies still do them. As mentioned in one of the points, I was shocked when someone asked for Link Exchange. And even just last week, I received an email from a news magazine asking to do link exchange. I just ignore their email request.

      Glad you will take on board all 17 tips, Frank. Much appreciate it. 🙂

  3. This is a list to bookmark because it is filled with so much value. If bloggers avoid these costly mistakes they are on the right path to truly building a business that will be sustainable.

    Your comments on social media really struck me. So many times we want to be on every single social media platform but we are spread so thin that it is not effective.

    In my opinion it is better to pick one or two social media platforms and really master them to the point that you are driving thousands of visitors to your website daily. If you do that then there is no need to be on multiple platforms.

    Thanks for sharing such a comprehensive list.

    1. You’re welcome, Nate. And thanks for your kind praise. I am honored.

      Yes, being on too many social media platforms was a mistake I used to make, too. That was many years ago when social media was still new. And I thought it best to be on as many platforms as possible. Over the years, I have learned that it is better to focus on a few.

      I still get on the main ones like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter. But my focus has been more towards Pinterest for Asia Travel Gems. I engage more on this platform because it is great for a travel blog that has many beautiful images.

      And you are right. Due to my focus on Pinterest for Asia Travel Gems, thousands of visitors are driven to the website. And that is awesome for ranking on search results as well as conversions for sales and revenue.

  4. Awesome tips I know too well from my past, ha ha I must admit I tried almost all these which were just a waste of my time. I was blocked from social media sites, had my hands slapped by Google and worse thing of all I was labeled as a spammer by leaving my link on every website I was on.

    I hope people take your tips serious, so they don’t experience what I did in the past which only made it more difficult for me to build a business online

    1. Ouch! So sorry to hear what happened, Jeff. Glad you learned and now you are doing better.

      Yes, I too hope people read this article, and learn what not to do when practicing SEO. It will save them from getting into trouble with the search engines. And worse, getting their sites ranked dropped.

      Thanks for sharing your cautionary tale, Jeff. 🙂

  5. I really appreciate that you have posted this article, these are great tips to stay away from. I just had someone the other day email me asking if they could link to my content. Of course, I sent off the email telling the writer that it was fine to link to my content. The next thing I know I get a email back from them wanting to charge me $17. I turned them down right away. I don’t feel paying for backlinks would ever be a good tactic and after reading this article I now know what to watch out for.

    1. You’re welcome, Dena.
      Yes, link exchange is never good for your site. Worse when it is also a paid link.
      I am glad you did not move forward with their proposal. Otherwise, it will hurt the ranking of your website.
      You are doing well. Keep it up! 🙂
