Myths About SEO

SEO is an integral part of online business success. However, there are some common myths related to SEO. Myths are unhelpful, misleading, and a potential waste of time. So, let’s look at these misconceptions and determine the facts from the fiction.

SEO is a one-off job – The idea that SEO only needs to be done once is as silly as saying you only need to eat healthy once to achieve results. It is an ongoing, consistently evolving concept and therefore needs to remain fresh and current.

SEO is no longer important – If you ever read that SEO is dead or no longer relevant, rest assured that this is not only a myth but also a ridiculous one. Ever-changing technology and keyword analysis can be mind-boggling, but SEO remains a priority.

Fresh content – Another common myth is that Google will only rank fresh content. While fresh and engaging content is essential if you want to succeed in the online business world, it does not mean that republished content that is not fresh will not rant.

PPC can’t help you rank higher – Although PPC will not directly boost rankings, it can attract backlinks, leading to higher rankings.

SEO is all about rankings – Ranking as number one may get you more traffic, but this isn’t always the case, and many sites gain traffic from many keywords, not just one or two. Often, the second or third highest-ranking site will get more traffic than the first. The ranking is not as important as the traffic. You should definitely aim to rank high, but that will not be too productive if you are not achieving an excellent quality of traffic. This can only be done with accurate keywords and in-depth knowledge and coverage of your industry.

Keyword research isn’t important – A common misconception is that keyword research is no longer important. While it is true that most pages rank for hundreds of keywords, it is still essential to ensure you home in on the words relevant to your business. If you are not using the most suitable keywords, then your rankings will inevitably suffer.

The best way to ensure you are on top of your game regarding your business SEO is to consult a professional, such as Green Tornado.

I've been working with Green Tornado for just over 5 years. In that time they have designed countless flyers, posters, product labelling, newsletters and other promotional stuff that my business required. Most importantly they understand my brands' 'vision' - possibly better than I do myself! All the work produced is fantastic and of very good quality. Over the years I've had some pretty tight deadlines but they've never been missed. Would definitely recommend!

We were a start up company when we started to work with GT and I have to say they have been so tolerant and helpful From us not actually knowing what we needed to not knowing what we could actually afford the team were supportive and understanding. They have helped us at short notice , which , to be honest must drive them mad because we still do it now years down the line , yet time and time again they deliver . I send over ideas and they turn that into an amazing finished product , they have , without doubt , helped our company grow . I have no hesitation at all in recommending them and I will never be going anywhere else , they know our company and what we want to portray and have taken the time and made the effort to get to know exactly what we need and want - you can’t put a price on that !
