    In on page don't copy content from other website because google thought that spam and your keywords will never rank in the search engine,

    Off page don't follow link exchange strategy to create a backlink it is also one of the draw backs.

    Most of the common mistakes are in the Off Page SEO side due to manipulation of rankings like link scheming.

      Not only do you know want to have duplicate content, but also you don't want thin content. Content that provides no real value. In terms of linking, yes you don't want bad backlinks, but something else people overlook, are bad badlinks. This could mean links that Google thinks someone paid you to put on your own site.

      Just to be safe, use the nofollow tag for links you think could be viewed as paid links.

      To answer your Title question: all of them.

      To answer your post, depends on what Google exactly wrote to you, avoid the one(s) they're bothered by.

      They don't like duplicate content. They don't like similar urls, similar page titles, etc., etc... Think user experience.

    Duplicated content is a major no-no. Apart from that ensure you are not repeating target keywords in Title, Meta description etc. Ensure you are not copying other site's content, Google will sure penalize plagiarism.

    Common mistakes? Well, I'd say that doing useless link building and publishing content that nobody wants to see are common and mistakes. They don't help, and take time from the stuff that actually affects rankings.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

    I think you should avoid bulk creation of backlinks and just focus on social media marketing for traffic generation.

    Youtube
    Twitter
    Facebook

    and many others are the great way to generate traffic.

      Is it a good practice to add tags in the articles? When I closely examined the search index, I discovered that most of the tags are getting indexed and under the specific tag url, the articles are listed. Basically it is creating duplicate content sitewide and thinking about removing all the tags or getting the directory deinxed and add it in robot.txt to disallow bots to crawl and index.

      What you guys suggest?
