If you have ever been to long-term website optimization, you must have encountered top SEO myths. Here are three of them that have been deciphered so far:-
1. Search Engine Optimization is no more:- A very known title we go through every day is "Content is King," so SEO has become unnecessary in users' eyes. The myth highly convinces people that SEO is dead. NO. SEO is required as it is the core component in optimizing website development.
2. Google prefers fresh content:- It is said that Google only focuses on the quality of content used. Is "Better the content, higher the Ranking on SERPs" accurate? I say a big NO. Besides content, several factors google analyzes in website optimization, one of which is SEO.
3. Google ADs improve organic ranking:- A very popularly known myth, "Google ADs improve organic ranking," is born and brought up by PPC agencies who have highly bombarded that a disputed ranking factor with some proof is none other than the Click-through rates.

    Really SEO is required as it is the bible of how the site should be optimized. Say something about what fresh content means. As a blogger published is it good to choose a health niche?

  • In fact, I noticed that the search campaign helps in ranking the site. But only if search queries are used that bring the right visitors to the site, which reduces the bounce rate. And, as a result, affects the behavioral ranking factors and due to this, you can improve the position of the site.

    I appreciate these myths being debunked, I remember in 2017 having a crypto blog that received a crazy amount of organic traffic without me knowing any SEO, so I thought it was bs haha, obviously that was pure luck and lack of competition, some months ago I tried to replicate that success and crickets

    Myth 1: The more links you have, the higher your ranking will be.
    Reality: Quality is more important than quantity. A link from a high-quality site is worth far more than dozens of links from low-quality sites.

    Myth 2: Meta tags are still important for SEO.
    Reality: Meta tags are no longer a factor in SEO.

    Myth 3: You need to include keywords in your content to rank well.
    Reality: Keyword stuffing can actually hurt your ranking, because it's considered spammy and black hat SEO techniques are now penalized by Google. Instead, focus on creating quality content that readers will enjoy and share.

    I not expert on SEO stuffs. I only know Google updates are getting more frequently.
    A lot using SEO tools to scout highly search keywords some aim less highly search keywords partly due to large competition on highly search keywords.

    Let's say every one is doing it , than come domain age, content factors, etc how to rank high. I feel is like " a thing no body can for see that " as Google is the boss decide how. Of course there are other search engine not just Google

    Summary is getting harder and harder now a days come SEO stuffs this is how I feel.
