Doing such activities lends your website down and your SEO into failure.
1) Link Exchange
If you think that exchanging links from your family, friends, retailer, a distributor will give you benefit in traffic and rank. You are wrong doing such exchanges like link farming and making links on your private blogs, will not help you. It can degrade your ranking as well as traffic.
Such practices make google allow your website to deindex from search engines. So stop doing it right now.
2) Paid/Sponsored Linking
This is another way that can lead your website to death (deindex). In this practice, many website owners do link exchange on any niche to take a backlink from a website. They think taking a link from a website will benefit them, but this technique doesn’t work anymore.
As they are paid links, some owners remove links from low-quality websites after some time. But taking links in this will not benefit your website in a more extended way. You need to look for other methods for improvement. Otherwise, your website will be no longer indexed.
3) Spam Blog Commenting
When you see a post, and you like it, you drop a valuable comment. That comment counts as a good sign of a post/blog. But when you try to post the same comment and links on many websites, it will be considered as spam blog commenting.
Please stay away from doing it. This will not be beneficial in any means. Doing this continuously will lead your website to a deindexing process. That’s why it is necessary to moderate your every comment, before giving them approval. It will protect your website from spam commenting.
4) Guest Post of Low Quality
In the starting time of a website, people think accepting guest posts will boost their website performance. But they don’t think its drawbacks if a guest post is of low-quality content.
If you accept low-quality content without checking its plagiarism and any grammatical mistake, this will lead to lower exposure of your content. Taking low-quality content factor affecting website ranking and performance. So always check guest post content, then publish it.
5) Link from Forum Signature
Many users have created author signatures on forum submission websites. Many years ago, people got links from forums. Still, nowadays forum owner’s not allowed to create a link, created links are changing to no-follow.
Link building plays a vital role in today’s seo. It makes a relationship between websites having different domain & page authority. Google will consider you the most useful if a large amount of website points toward your website.
6) Jump Pages
They are the pages created to achieve a high rank on a specified query. Jump pages are also known as bridge page, portal page gateway page & doorway pages. This was done in a manner that for searching a query, many results with the same link appear in the search result. All pages link to the same first page.
Due to this unethical activity, many users’ websites got deindexed and have been penalized.
7) Less Content on Website
You can ask any content curator about, making a great blog is not a child game. It needs dedication and time to create high-quality content. Google always promotes websites having high-quality content, clearing users’ query. Their content got rewarded by google by placing them in featured snippets.
Less content means when a website is having no content or less amount of content on their page or blog.
Websites having significantly less content have less chance to rank in search engines, if the content quantity is not increased, then google is forced to place your website in the deindexing list. So it’s better to update content with high quantity and quality.
8) Using Spun Content
People who can afford a human content writer, try to generate content using software and create plagiarized content, Which is totally against google content policy and also a significant ranking factor. It also violates the right of its original owner.
Many small industries are still using this approach to create content. But a content writer’s mind can quickly figure out that it’s spun content.
9) Content Duplicacy
Nowadays, people don’t want to work to create content. They copy and paste website content, blogs, articles to present it as their original content. Having duplicate content on a website puts your website under great trouble.
If multiple pages are found with the same content, you will receive google warning in the search console. To fix the duplicate content problem, you should use canonicalization of URLs. If you do not resolve the issue, at last, your website will be deindexed from search results.
10) Cloaking Content
Websites were showing some other content to search engines and offering users another content is known as cloaking. You can better understand it by torrent websites, as they use cloaking to stay hidden from search engines.
You can also understand it by taking an example, as you have a website which sells fruits & vegetables. Still, by using cloaking, you sell drugs and illegal medicines.
Cloaking is done by content delivery which is based on user-agent or IP address. When a bot or spider asks for a website, the user agent is identified, a clean website is shown to the spiders. But if the human search is done, the real site is visible to the user.
If a website is found to be violating these policies, there are two types of penalty which can be given to any website.
a) Google will penalize your website partially. Like home page, blog page or any other part.
b) The full website can be penalized by deindexing it.
11) Keyword Stuffing
Keyword Density is also the factor to rank any website content. Keywords are used in many places like on meta title, meta descriptions. Keyword stuffing means to use an excessive number of keywords in content.
If keywords are more than keyword density, the content is called as keyword-stuffed, for example, you use a keyword ten times in a 100-word paragraph which is way more than keyword density.
If you create content with the same colour and background to make google fool, or by using small fonts which are not readable by humans.
Use of unrelated keyword in content, for example, your website deal with wood and timber. Still, you have used keywords silver and gold to attract more traffic is also considered as keyword stuffing.
Correct use of keywords can lead to increase in blog traffic.
By using such practices, google can deindex your website without any notice.
12) Bot Commenting
People love to comment, but they don’t have time to spend on blogs. So they create bot comments which link back to their site. If the same comment is posted on all blogs, they are considered as spam comments.
You can prevent your website from spam comment, by using an Akismet (Spam comment filter plugin), or you can set a moderate comment before publishing.
13) Using Free Hosting
Are you still relying on free hosting for your website? The free hosting services give you only ads and worst services. Only terrible user experience can be seen on free hosting.
You should always use secure hosting services to host your website. It’s a good practice to use SEO friendly hosting. Using free hosting, put your website into a de-indexing spot.
There are still many people who are doing this practice, and they think doing this will improve their website performance and ranking.
You can hike your site performance by reducing or removing spam links or low-quality website links from your websites.
Try to contact the other website owner if you need to remove other links. Otherwise, you can disavow them quickly through google search console.
Don’t overuse interlinking, as interlinking is a way to point out other relatable websites for the resources which can help to understand the content in a better way.
