Never expect that major search engines like Google will put your website on top of their list for competitive keywords if your site doesn’t have many high ranking pages. If you want result from your SEO campaign, you should start from a less competitive keywords. Your website will surely get more high rankings from keywords with higher competition if you first get high rankings from keywords with lower competition.

4. Wrong choice of keywords – this is the most common mistake committed by webmasters in their SEO campaign. A successful SEO campaign should start from choosing the right keywords for your website. It doesn’t matter if your keywords has thousands of searches because whats important is that it delivers targeted visitors to your sites. Your SEO campaign would be a big waste of time, money and effort if you choose the wrong keyword  to optimize your website.

5. You get the wrong links for your site- many webmasters want fast results in their SEO campaign  by getting bad links from various link building schemes. Instead of having their sites listed in the first page results , they end up having trouble with major search engines and worst their sites were get banned forever. Again, optimizing your site with good backlinks is the best way to get high rankings on Google and other major search engines.
