Ahrefs contributor Joshua Hardwick has shared an article highlighting 10 SEO myths you should ignore.

He says, “Most myths are harmless. Gum takes seven years to digest. Sharks don’t get cancer. Lightning never strikes the same place twice.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for most SEO myths. At best, they’re slightly misleading. At worst, they lead you to waste precious time, money, and resources on things that will never improve SEO.

So let’s bust a few common SEO myths once and for all.

  1. SEO is dead
  2. SEO is a one-time thing
  3. Google only ranks ‘fresh’ content
  4. Long-tail keywords are easier to rank for
  5. Duplicate content will get you penalized“.
