SEO Says ‘No’ to Spamming
With good SEO (Search Engine Optimization), your website you have a better chance of ranking in the first page of Google and other search engines on the Internet. If you do not reach a high page rank, your website will not get enough traffic to monetize your website.
The average Internet user has a very short attention span. If a user search the Internet for certain keywords, he will probably go to the websites that are laid on him on the first few pages of the search engine search and will not care about the other websites buried far down in Google.
So in order to make your website known and profit from it, you need to get a high page rank and to achieve this- your website should have good SEO. There are various ways on how you can optimize your website. You can offer good content to your visitors with keyword rich articles. You can also spread your links in several sites on the Internet and strengthen your link building campaign.
There are a number of webmasters that are doing the shortcut to the tedious hardwork of SEO. They tend to spam the Internet with irrelevant links and non-informative content just to boost their page rank. Below are some examples of spamming and SEO no-no’s:
SEO: Is your website guilty of spamming?
Forum/ blog spamming
This type of spamming is probably the most common because anyone can do it. Spammers post irrelevant posts and comments to various forums and blogs just to have a link back to their sites. They will flood forums and blogs with their irrelevant links that can really be a headache to site administrators and readers.
Users search for information on the Internet. If you do your search and you are pointed to a website with irrelevant information to the keyword you search about, then you are in a spam site. Cloaking gives search results relevant to the keyword you searched but give no pertinent content or useful information.
Artificially networked websites
Although it’s legitimate to link one website to another, spammers used artificially networked websites to give the illusion that their websites are highly referenced. When you click on these sites thinking that they contain relevant information, you will be surprised to find out they don’t really have real content at all.
Hidden keywords for SEO
Spammers mask the color of the keywords to match the background color of their website. This can cheat off the search engines thinking that this particular website has relevant information to the keyword users are searching for but only to find out that the keywords are missing (hidden) in the webpage itself and contains no relevant information to the searched term.
It is a good thing that search engines are continually developing techniques to detect spammers and penalized them and cut them out of their search engine results until such time their websites do offer good and relevant content for the users.
The objective of the existence of the World Wide Web is to give information. Spammers do it the easy way and have no regard to the true meaning SEO.
