Default seo: do not

DUplicating content makes your site as a hidden results for users in search engines..

when you copy content for your site, site from which you copied will be displayed first when user search for any info in the search engine and your site will be displayed as hidden results..

spamming forums, blogs like posting comments with unrelated matter or copy content just for purpose of SEO.. comment should be purposeful...

Don't post duplicate content on the website. Google likes fresh and updated contents.

Sorry to reference you James, but it was a good example.

I agree to you


Spamming would also be described as putting our data or some such activities at wrong and irrelevant place just to create a web site presence. A good example could be a blog comment that includes your website link but the comment theme and content is forcefully diverted to the blog topic. This would result into blocking of your IP, disapproval for block comment and more. Hope I explained it properly.

Don't engage in any linking schemes or unethical practices. Some people try to save steps by using article spinners. They're garbage! Spend the time and write good content. I agree with jpub wholeheartedly. Don't shortcut on content. Treat your visitors well and do what's right for them. Google watches how visitors react to your site, so it's very important.

A good rule of thumb to avoid doing things you shouldn't is: just make your website useful for the market you are targeting. If your site is full of content and that content is valuable you should be in good standing with the search engines.

The web is pretty much all about adding value to your visitor or customer, Triggerito's example here is a great one for what not to do.

Hidding text, keyword stuffing, spamming...these kinds of things will not make the search engines too happy.

Do not spam or stuff keywords as this could lose you your deal with your host server. Do not over use any marketing strategy like sending too many emails, etc. Test your content in all browsers and not just one.
