Negative on-page optimization factors

Negative on-page optimization factors

Since we discussed the positive SEO factors in On-page optimization tutorials, the next step is to describe the negative on-page optimization factors.

The factors provided bellow are the current with definitely negative effect. We will update them frequently, but take in mind that the search engines can change their algorithms and ranking conditions suddenly without a notice.

Proof of the above words is that not long ago Google decide to allow the duplicate content, something chased with zeal before that. What they do was just to arrange the content as putting oldest to the top, then the second choice down, etc.

It is pity, but this could be really worst for people with new and rare spidered pages whose content has been stolen from some one with site visited often by the search engines.

Another case is with so called ‘invisible text’. Text with color same as the page background not visible in the browsers, but crawled by the search engine spiders. Such pages are no panelized probably because not everyone can be caught.

Let me provide you with the list of the tutorials regarding the matter. I must tell you that you may find more negative factors then the listed bellow, but we are giving you the really ‘bad’ of them.
