We have all seen self proclaimed experts in all industries and this is especially true in the Marketing Arena with self proclaimed SEO experts on many marketing forums. These morons give out so much bad advice that it’s sick. They care nothing about ruining others businesses or lives and the MODS do nothing to stop it. If you post proven advice many times your post gets edited or even deleted although it could help someone (some marketing forums like MarketersDominaton.net does not allow self proclaimed experts to give out bad advice). 95% of the people on these marketing forums don’t even read the threads – they just blatantly reply with their bad advice.

There is so much misinformation in this industry that many never build a business and some that do build a business actually profit off all the misinformation by selling SEO services to honest businesses. These honest businesses usually suffer big time and most of the time they end up not doing business with any real SEO expert that could help their business be more successful. Some of the MODS on these marketing forums also sell SEO services so keeping the real truth and real advice out of these forums help those MODS scam people out of money.

This post is not SEO’d unless you want to say self proclaimed SEO Experts is a keyword. This post is full of real marketing advice from a 20+ year SEO Expert that does outrank billion dollar companies for their own keywords and does own several real companies. You can listen to the advice in this post or not – either way does not matter to me because at the end of the day my business will still go on making money and outranking others. If you choose to listen to real advice then you might actually start making money online and building your business.

5 Myths (which is basically lies) that these self proclaimed SEO Experts pass along are as follows:

Myth: Domain Age is an important ranking factor.

Truth: Domain age has nothing to do with ranking a website and no it does not mean a site is trustworthy as many claim. You can outrank a 10 year old domain with proper on-site SEO and quality content. What does help in rankings is how long the website or blog pages have been indexed by the search engines. Domain age and age of pages being indexed are 2 totally different things.

Myth: PA and DA are important for proper SEO and rankings in search engines.

Truth: PA (page authority) and DA (domain authority) have 100% nothing to do with search engine rankings. These are fake made up numbers by MOZ’s system that have no effect on any search engine rankings. These metrics come from MOZ and their system to fool you into thinking they are part of SEO because MOZ wants to sell you useless SEO tools that have nothing to do with rankings. Google does not use any outside metrics for their rankings.

Myth: Quality backlinks get top rankings in search engines.

Truth: About 6 or 7 years ago many Self Proclaimed SEO Experts spammed up the web with 1,000s of bookmarking sites and took over rankings. Google fought back and changed things. These so called experts got angry with it and called Google evil because they could no longer rip people off with their SEO service. Now they just changed tactics but still do the same thing. These SEO experts now say a quality backlink is getting a link from a website that has high DA (domain authority) – which is a MOZ metric and not a Google metric. The truth is backlinks do not get top rankings but “Natural Links” do help get top rankings along with quality content and proper on-site SEO. Natural links are links that are built by others sharing your content.

Myth: Commenting or Posting information on non-related blogs and websites will hurt your rankings.

Truth: Nothing could be further from the truth. To begin with you have no business running around locating blogs to spam with your lame comments just to get a backlink. You should only participate on sites that interest you and then you should become a contributing member that brings value to the community. It does not matter if the site is related to your business / website or not. Fact is natural backlinks get top rankings and you can’t control natural backlinks. Those that share your content just may share it in a totally different niche. Google knows this and the fact is Google can tell what links are natural and what links are self built (spam) more than you think they can.

Myth: Only post on do-follow sites because no follow brings no link juice.

Truth: The fact is there is no such thing as do-follow links and never was. Some seem to think because a no-follow attribute exist then a do follow one must exist – Wrong! There is no do-follow and never will be. A link is a link – period! All links pass link juice and all links are followed. How much link juice is passed NOBODY BUT GOOGLE KNOWS! The attribute no-follow was created to mark paid for advertising links.

These are just a few of the lies these Self Proclaimed SEO Experts In Marketing Forums tell you, there are many more trust me. Before you go following these lame SEOers that can’t rank a website or build a business – do your research and know who you are listening to or hiring to help you with SEO.
