However, I have been quite surprised by the efforts of some people to try to negatively affect their search engine placement. Often these are not completely Internet amateurs, but professional web designers / developers who either ignore established thinking or decide that they will 'try something unique this time'.
I've therefore made a list of what I think are some of the biggest mistakes in SEO:
- Build a site with no / very little content
- Build your website in Flash
- Fail to update your content regularly
- Give all your pages the same / bad title tag
