Wouldn’t it be sweet to get your site listed with the other 5,000+ sites listed on this spammy link trade page?! Why do people think that links from pages like this help?

Forgot To Change Template Info Fail

Notice the second listing in this SERP (astyhotel.com):

tier-1-keywords

Oops! At least they ranked for “tier 1 keywords”!

Besides, “AstyHotel” just doesn’t sound good…

Literal Link Farm Fail

This site is the literal link farm because it’s about an actual farm :). When you visit the site, scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see what I mean by link farm.

SEO Fail Blog 302 Redirect Fail

seofailblog 302 redirect fail

Well, this is the firt time the SEO Fail Blog will have to fail itself. Apparently the non-www version of our site is redirecting to the www version, but it’s a 302 redirect! For those who don’t know, a 302 redirect is a temporary redirect that will not pass link juice to the url it redirects to. A 301 redirect is a permanent redirect that does pass the link juice.

Lesson learned: Always check your redirects. Just because it is redirecting somewhere, it doesn’t mean it is a 301. Here is a tool you can use to check your redirects: http://www.seoconsultants.com/tools/headers

Web Head Marketing Fail

web-head-marketing-google-local-fail

Never hire an internet marketing company that doesn’t do for themselves what they promise they’ll do for you. You know their claims of success are false when they aren’t using those same strategies for their own company. My friend received a random (spam) email from these guys telling him how the Google local listings are the “best” way to get traffic in the search engines. While Google Local is a great way to capture local business, it shouldn’t be your primary means of search marketing.

Upon inspection of their site, my friend was not able to find any detailed information about this company. No physical address, no page revealing the company’s principals, nothing. You would think that a site so structured around Google local optimization would know enough about it to put their own physical address on their site. Never trust a company with your money that won’t tell you who their principals, where they are located, or don’t do for themselves what they “can do for you”.
