Search engine myths and misconceptions

Search Engine Myths and Misconceptions

As a beginner in SEO, there is a growing need to stay updated about the myths

and misconceptions about the functionality of search engines since it would help

beginners to perform SEO effectively. The most popular myths are based on

search engine submission, Meta tags, keyword stuffing and paid search

improving the organic search results.

Submission in Search Engines

During the earlier years when the popularity of internet was just beginning to

grow, most of the search engines had submission forms which were a part of the

SEO process. The websites would be tagged along with the web pages consisting

of keyword information and would be then submitted in the search engines.

Once done, resources would be indexed after crawling of the web pages by bots.

But later on, most of the websites doing the search engine submissions proved

to be spam since a majority of the URLs were unused. This led to search engines

give more importance to the links from other sites thus giving more relevance to

the content that was directed to the search engines naturally.

Meta Tags

There was a time when Meta tags were considered an important essential in SEO

especially the Meta keywords tag. The important high ranking keywords would

be included within the website that needs to be ranked and the website would be

displayed in the query results whenever a user types in those keyword terms.

But later on, ranking the websites based on the Meta tags was avoided

completely because of the increasing number of spam websites that was ranking

higher. However the other two tags namely Meta description tags and title tags

are still considered to be an important parameter for a quality SEO.

Stuffing of the Keywords

There are many who think stuffing the content with relevant keywords will

improve the search results in the search engines. However it is not true. The

keyword density should be always 1% to 3% of the total website content. Even

though keywords are an important SEO metric, stuffing the keywords might

make your website look like a spam website.

Improve the organic search results with Paid Search

This is among another myth that is surrounding among website owners. They

spend a lot of money on search engine advertising otherwise known as ‘Pay per

Click’. However it is unlikely that paid search is going to improve the organic

search results for your website within the search engines.
