There is no doubt in the fact that as a blogger writing about SEO you are tempted to share any tip or advise that comes down to you. There is nothing wrong in that. In fact, it shows how serious you are about your commitment to the readers of your blog. However there are some topics in SEO that you will do better never to blog about. Writing or sharing your advice on these topics will prove to be a regressive step and there will be those embarrassing moments when you have to put your foot in the mouth! What are these dreaded SEO topics that you must avoid at all costs? Let’s find out!
Share Emails for Links: Much of the success or the lack of it of your blog is because of the number of readers who come in to read your content. If you have devised a method to get more visitors to your blog by sending out emails, do not make this information available on your blog. Your readers, some of them are sure to be bloggers themselves, are bound to carry off your email templates and replicate the formula. In your bid to impress your readers with a path-breaking method, you will squander away the proverbial gander!
SEO Conversion Secrets: So you have a special formula to squeeze out the SEO juice out of search engines and enrich your website or blog? Keep it with you! Instead of giving out your trade secrets and spoon-feeding your readers on how to do their job, offer honest opinions and let them figure it out for themselves. You can analyze the different tools of SEO and tell them honestly what you think of each of them, but do not let them in on what you do specifically for your own site.
Discourage Unethical Competitor Analysis: Everyone in the SEO business is in it for some gain. It does little help if you offer tips to unethically stalk others’ blogs and websites for competitive keywords in your domain of work. You can advise to invest time in experimenting with your own website and keyword data. Also, look for data about your competitors that is already out. That way you can get more insights without opening closed, private doors.
