The 2019 SEO myths in SEO-  

1- SEO a one time process-  One of the most common myths that you’ll hear if you’re into SEO practices. Let’s make it simple for we’ll describe with 2 scenarios.

  • #1st scenario- Let’s imagine that you’re working on a project for 1month. And in that one month, you see tremendous changes like all your keywords ranking on the top in web searches after seeing the results you stopped doing SEO.    
  • #2nd scenario- The second case is that people do SEO for one month & see that there are no big or drastic changes & end up frustrated & stops the SEO process.

1st case- there will be an initial boom but in the long run, it won’t be there.

And, in the 2nd case- it’s okay that you didn’t get the expected result in the time that you’ve fixed but you need to keep doing.

In short, SEO is not a one time process you need to do it till you get the results & once you have the results just keep doing the SEO process don’t just stop it.

SEO is a slow yet the most effective ways of earning organic search ranking.

2- SEO is dead activity- One of the most common myths that you’ll see on the Internet. It’s very much pathetic how people say that the SEO is dead without any kind of proof.

The name “SEO” itself stands for Search Engine Optimization. 

SEO is not dead.

Some of the activities involved in it are dead. So, what one needs to do is that the process needs to be updated as time passes.

Always, keep this single thing in mind that the SEO stays alive as long as there are search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.

3- SEO is just about ranking better in web searches- Yet another classic myth or misconception among the people. 

Yes, you’ll get good ranking once everything is done. But, the ranking should not be a goal factor.

Confused well, don’t worry keep reading.

Let’s take an e.g- You’re a business owner doing e-commerce for men’s clothing. And, your website ranks at the top of every search related to clothing.

For e.g- the phrase “best clothing online” is being searched & this website pops up on the top. But, the website is not earning anything.

Ever thought of why this is happening?

Well, the phare- best clothing online can be a search done by-

  • any age person,
  • any gender or a person searching for kitchen clothing.

See, that’s when you need to understand that ranking alone won’t help! So, how to go about it?

Always keep one thing in mind before you start SEO. Relevancy of search phrases plays a vital role. 

Your, search keywords need to have high relevance with respect to the business that you do.

4- Social signals don’t have any SEO value- Relationship b/w social signals & SEO is very much debatable topic.

The debate on this topic is there for a long time in the field of digital marketing.

Google search engine say they don’t consider the Facebook “likes” or Twitter “tweets” as a ranking factor & this is half correct statement according to us.

Confused? The search engines don’t really count the social media engagement of a website but they influence the website ranking indirectly.

Here’s how it works according to us-

Social activities like facebook – likes, shares or Twitter- tweets are similar to the off-practices(link building) that you’re doing in SEO the only difference is that with likes & tweets drive more traffic rather than improving ranking.

And, when the traffic is driven it automatically gives you better rankings. We’ve just shared our perspective on this myth. We know you might be having a different opinion on this you can comment below your feedback on this myth.

5- A good content automatically ranks better- This is yet another blunder that you’ll get to hear if you’re into SEO.

The above mentioned are some of the very common myths that you’ll come across when you’re into SEO services or when you’re in the lookout for the best SEO services in Kochi, Kerala. Don’t let the people misguide you with these kinds of Myths.
