In my opinion, keyword cannibalization, wrong keyword selection, building backlinks that are not related to our niche, and keyword stuffing are the most common SEO mistakes that we have seen in day-to-day life.
Are you doing with the same mistakes or anything else?

Too many webmasters forget the importance of user experience when creating their site and focus too much on trying to please the Google bot....

Hey Kocerroxy,

I agree with the common SEO mistakes that you have specified. Along with that, I would like to add more points to it that we see nowadays. Here it goes:

1. Unable to set your Audience
2. Not focusing on search intent while preparing a content strategy
3. Choosing the Wrong Keywords
4. unorganized navigation & orphaned pages
5. Degradation in Mobile and Voice Search
6. Not Using Internal Links
7. Skipping Title Tags & Meta Descriptions and Forgetting to Provide Context with Schema
8. Content Irrelevancy
9. Publishing Duplicate Content
10. Not using Google Analytics data
11. Not Improving Your Bounce Rate
12. Not using Google Search Console data
13. Ignoring 404s or broken links
14. Non-secure HTTP sites
15. Poor page loading metrics

I think wrong keyword selection is the most common mistake. Another mistake is thin content or bad content in SEO content writing.

  • Duplicate Content
  • Duplicate Content
You could copy a site and have the person flagged that created it if more popular as plenty have done it. Duplicate can also be down to same scripts or same layout templates there is plenty that will trigger it. Bing is nailing duplicate content. Even AI will set off the duplicate alarm also. More reason to find a niche and write own content without bots.
