SEO Mistakes – Suck!
Wow! Got my ass kicked on a live webinar tonight… Very humble moment. Normally I would do a live ranking on Google and take the front page like it was nothing. The search term “SEO Bakersfield” or “SEO in Bakersfield“, this was child’s play. I had already looked at the competition, there was none, didn’t exist.
So what was the real problem? Well after being very humble, I went back and looked at the page. And son of a bitch! When I copied and pasted, I accidentally copied the old links from my last webinar.
So here’s what I mean
My last webinar was about taking the front page for “SEO Lubbock” and “SEO in Lubbock” Which I did in about 10 minutes and by the next day I was sitting at #2 or #3. So I just copied the template I had been using each time to take these markets. Just before I copied the template I had been using, I didn’t change the text links.
Yes the almighty text links
You see the keywords that I had used “SEO Bakersfield” and “SEO in Bakersfield” were accidentally linked to the pages for “SEO Lubbock” and of course “SEO in Lubbock”. Had I just taken a couple of extra minutes and looked over my work, I would have so noticed this right away.
Now the SEO Mistakes!
I didn’t check it before I published it. This ultimately lead to my “SEO Mistakes”. Which ultimately lead to my work not ranking immediately like it should have! Like I said if I had taken more time to prepare and check my work, I would have ranked just like usual.
I little off subject here. I remember this one time when I was remodeling my bathroom and I wanted a bigger bathroom. Well I was in a hurry, my twin boys were about to be born, I had to finish this project. Well to enlarge my bathroom, I had to reroute my water pipes for my pool. Wow what a mistake! When I rerouted the pipes, I placed a elbow just under where the new shower was going. Needless to say, I didn’t check, I just buried it and didn’t think about it ever leaking. About a week later, I notice my pool was getting very low. You see I already buried the pipes and installed the shower. Ultimately I had to rip out the shower, break the concrete and start all over. I fixed it, but what a pain in the ass. If I would have taken just a few more moments to look for the mistakes…
Fixing my SEO Mistakes
Well at least when you make an SEO mistake, you don’t have to do so much work. So in this case, I am deleting the original post I did on the webinar for “SEO Bakersfield“. Doing it correctly.
Learn from my mistakes if you can. Check your work, before you go in front of a hundred people and say “look at me, what a great SEO I am”. The fact is this could have been avoided. I am sure this won’t be the last SEO mistake I will ever make, but this could have been avoided with a little care and a little caution.
Have Fun and Good Luck,
