      Fixed this for you:
      2. Submitting too many (aka SPAM) guest posts in websites which allows do-follow links.


      Otherwise, nice.

    Care to elaborate on 1. Focusing on Google instead of users?

    FYI, Google 2019/2020 is advocating to us that a prime SERP factor is to focus on User Intent, so would you care to explain why "focusing on Google instead of users" is a mistake please when almost the entire professional SEO community states otherwise?

        Of course it is. Anything over DA 95 is a scam. Everyone knows that.

      Why man??? Why??


      I have learned many things here.


      Ofcourse, you have to have the correct eye to see through the irrelevant rant and BS.


      @DABK Although DA/PA itself is a scam. But your statement is also flimsy. DA99 PA99 links in fiverr, isn't that too much?!

        Nah, man. I ran google.com through MOZ's spam tool. It's coming up at 99. Surely, then, its Domain authority must be 99, no? And clearly that means enterprising young fiverr's can get a you a link from a Google, no?


        And, on a serious note, I got an email from someone on fiverr who was trying to sell me hundreds of backlinks from DA 95. Made my heart flutter.

    Imagine trolls willing to pay for SEO just so they could flood Google's first page with useless/malicious links.
