--->Don't Spam Your Website Some webmasters out there have decided to spam their own websites. How do they do this you ask? One way they do this is to place a lot of unrelated keywords into their meta tags and keywords. Another way is to make 'invisible text' on their website by making text so small that it actually looks like a dot or period. Don't do this. This can easily get you banned from search engines.
--->Do Not Participate in Link Farms What exactly is a Link Farm? A link farm is list of links created and maintained solely for purpose of constructing links between member sites. For example: One page of links is generated and to be listed on this page it is a requirement to place this page on your website. Search engines see this as an illegal move and can have you punished and banned from them. Please don't hesitate to investigate if you have a question about a particular program that you are involved with. It could save you tons later.
One thing that I frequently hear when referring to above 'programs' is following: "But, it's free, it's not going to hurt me." First of all, these aren't free. These are a waste of valuable time. As I mentioned Time IS Money and your time is precious. For every moment you are spending on these basically worthless ideas, you COULD be improving your traffic instead. Secondly, a few of above mentioned are against search engine rules and could get you banned. That is a lot of hurting.
