Search engine optimization is the core task for all marketers. Today search engines bring most of the business to brands as people consult Google, Yahoo and Bing before making a purchase decision.

Apart from just knowing the SEO techniques it is also important to know about the SEO myths that prevail around.

Entrepreneur contributor Jason Parks has listed five most common SEO myths.

Jason says, “My job is to teach prospective clients about what actually moves the needle from an SEO perspective and to erase the theories from their minds that will have very little benefit to their business.

Myth No. 1: Blogs will help your SEO.

For some reason, everyone thinks posting a blog on your own website will magically increase your SEO presence and make your website stronger.

If you have a very strong website to begin with, internal blogs can help drive more traffic to your site. For example, I wrote a blog on The Media Captain’s site about Snapchat geofilters for local businesses. We’re based in Columbus, Ohio, and we received a lead from a pizza shop in Lafayette, La. This is the purpose of a blog: to drive traffic for long-tail keywords”.
