18 SEO Myths You Should Leave Behind in 2017

Stop wasting your time on SEO strategies that don't work

Improve your SEO strategy for the new year and beyond

  • To say SEO has “changed a lot” would be the understatement of the decade. We’ll often see multiple updates per year from Google – this year’s major Penguin update happened in September 2016, which made rewarding high-quality websites a part of its core algorithm.
  • Today, successful inbound marketers must turn their attention to a long overdue focus on high-quality content. Marketers and SEO agencies worldwide have halted their obsession with link building and keywords and reprioritized for this specifically.
  • This guide is going to point out all of the most common myths and assumptions about how SEO works and debunk them for you. Our mission is to ensure that you’re not wasting a single moment on things that simply don’t matter for SEO in 2017!

The SEO myths guide helps answer questions like:

  • How much does having a secure HTTPS website matter?
  • Do meta descriptions have a big impact on search rankings?
  • Does Google still care about local search?
  • Do pop-ups always hurt my search ranking?
