False claims from SEO Experts
Before I start I will just say don’t be fooled by claims from SEO Experts about being the best! I say this because I was looking through some search terms the other day and came across a company pertaining to be the UK’s No 1 SEO Experts. I was intrigued and so as any SEO Expert would do; I visited the website. Oh and yes they were on page 10 or somewhere where organic searchers would fear to tread.
Hopefully the owners of the website (position1seo dot com) will read this and make some changes to their website; however I do not like the fact that he offers the sort of SEO packages that will get you into trouble one day…in my honest opinion that is.
So why do I feel they are making false claims? Well firstly they are nowhere near the top of Google for their search terms. Also the have tried to attack every keyword under the sun on different pages and used the keywords within the menu.
They do not realise that the over use of keywords within the coding of a website can have a very negative effect on your website. If you check out the links on my sidebar you will see that I have not used the full address of my website as it contains the word SEO. As most of the links have SEO in them; I don’t want to spam the word by over use.
However the main reason I would say they are not the UK’s No 1 SEO Experts is quite simply; when they have changed from a html website to a WordPress one; they have not moved all the old pages. So Google still has them in their index and these are linking to the wrong home page!
Wrong home page? You may ask. Go on; ask! Yes; they link to the old homepage using /index.html which in itself is wrong. At one point in time /index.html was technically a different page than that of the homepage without using the index.html or any other variant. So they are not doing themselves any favours at all.
Any way; enough said; you can check out what I mean by visiting this
old page; link now as they have made some changes to their website.
