Relying on thin and short contents is a definite no!
Yeah, Google was once giving it away for the longer contents,but it is not the same anymore.Many people started using smaller contents for the websites that suit the mobile users as well.Most of the traffic to a website is from mobile users and shorter contents go well with mobiles.Surprisingly,little texts do not always work out either! According to a recent study,higher quality longer contents can also fetch views from a wider audience.So do not go with the myth because it is not always about shorter contents!
Do not go overboard with internal linking
Once upon a time,internal linking and keyword stuffing were the trends that fetched a higher rank for a website. Sorry guys, they are the most outdated trends right now! If you use too many internal links with anchor texts,then its game over,no kidding. Keep it minimal and use only at right places.
Single keyword for a page is not so good idea!
Many people use only low competition keywords to fetch high traffic to their websites. Using a single keyword throughout content can also be a huge turn off for Google.So be generous with different keywords and also remember never to go overboard with it either.
Do not go for the low quality website for guest blogging!
Never EVER choose low quality websites to guess blog about your work.Choose an appropriate and a decent website that already has good guest bloggers.Do research on it by going through the ratings and reviews before making up your mind.
Befriend social media platform
Social media could play a huge role in fetching you a high traffic to your website.Post links on your Facebook page and Twitter accounts and you will see the difference right away! Be generous with your involvement in Social media platform, who knows, you could even be the next Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs!
