Search Engine Journal contributor Helen Pollitt has published an article explaining what SEO myths are. Further, she talks about 20 common SEO myths.

She says, “Sometimes an SEO technique can be written off as a myth by others purely because they have not experienced success from carrying out this activity for their own site.


It is important to remember that every website has its own industry, set of competitors, the technology powering it, and other factors that make it unique.

Blanket application of techniques to every website and expecting them to have the same outcome is naive.

Someone may not have had success with a technique when they have tried it in their highly competitive vertical.

It doesn’t mean it won’t help someone in a less competitive industry have success”.
