Why White Hat SEO Strategies Are So Important

Years ago it was very easy to get your web site ranked high in search engines by paying various services to provide bogus back links to your site which fooled Google into thinking that these links were legitimate.  As wrong as they were, these tactics worked great at the time, but no longer provide the same positive results not to mention that today, if you employ these same tactics, Google can actually penalise your site and take you out of the search engine rankings all together.

Today you must have what is called a ‘white hat’ approach to SEO to move up in the various search engine rankings.  Straight Up SEO Brisbane specialises in white hat SEO practices.  White hat SEO services involve effectively doing the following to ensure that your web site is not penalised by the major search engines:

Providing Great Content – If you want to rank high in the search engines, one of the most important things that you can do is constantly update your web site with quality content.  This content should be informative and well written so that it does not sound too spammy.  Search engines are able to determine whether your content is legitimate by comparing it to content from other high profile web sites. 

Use Keywords Sparingly – Many people think that if you are targeting specific keywords that you should use them as often as you can on your web site.  This strategy will most definitely back fire when it comes to improving your search engine rankings.  When you are building content for your web site it is fine to use keywords, but you should use them very sparingly.  A good rule of thumb is to use them once per every 100 words of content.
