Ø Cloaking:

One of the old Black Hat SEO-techniques is cloaking and strongly suggest everyone of you to avoid such practices. Cloaking is simply showing a unique and better optimized content to the search engines while showing some other content to users. It is simply cheating search engines and also the users and traffic. Google and other search engines totally prohibits such black hat practices and if found can ban your website forever.

Ø Website Submission:

Website submission to search engine is essential. When you launch your website Google and search engines should know about your existence to crawl and list you in their search results. Thus, websites submissions are very necessary but never use any software for website submission and re-submitting again and again is worst thing you can do to ruin your own business because it is generally assumed that at least six weeks of patience is necessary after first submission of your website. But, modern search engines are very effective and they can easily index you in short time period. Making frequent submission is considered to be spam and search engines can penalize you for your activities. (More)

Ø Flash and Graphics:

Although, modern search engines are very effective and it is assume that search engines can even crawl those websites that are heavily equipped with flash. But, it is always better to stand on the safe side because a website that ranks of the first page of the search engines has always seen to avoid huge flash and graphics. I don’t suggest you to use high and heavy flash in your websites but using HTML or PHP are found to be better from Search-Engine-Optimization (SEO) point of view. (More)

Ø Keyword Stuffing:

Keyword stuffing is over optimizing which is a foul and search engines can penalize you for such activity. Always pay attention to the keyword density and never place unnecessary keywords to your content. Furthermore, over repeating keywords to grab the attention of search engine is an old and outdated technique that search engine now penalize for webmasters by simply blacklisting the website from the search engines. (More)

Ø Single Keyword Optimization:

Focusing on a single keyword-optimization is simply practicing traffic cuts off because when you optimize for a single keyword you will be missing huge traffic that are likely to use some other similar keywords for searching similar service provider like you in the search engines. Using SEO-tools like Wordtracker and Google Adwords to find couple of good keywords and key phrases and optimizing them is a healthy way of optimizing your web business and minimizing the traffic loss.
