1. Keyword Stuffing
Keyword researching becomes quite popular nowadays as it drives the targeted audience toward your blog.
Different search engines recommend different keyword density in the blog but normally 2-5% may be acceptable, instead of the fact that it provides clear meaning to sentences because search engines are not human they have some procedure, called algorithm, therefore ensure that the keyword density should be within this limit.
2. Hidden Text And Links
Previously this technique was very popular, most people find targeted keywords and add them to the article by minimizing the text of keyword in such a way that it’s discovered only by the search engine, not by readers.
This type of technique is not alive today, Google Penguin is very interested to get hit by that blog and dropped back their ranking results.
This principle is also applied to hyperlinks (links), which means the links on the blog should be easily discovered by readers also.
3. Article spinning
This too lazy technique used in SEO this involves grabbing content from a high-ranking page (on someone else’s site), making a few changes, and using it as your own.
The worst offenders simply have a bot do the work, and also the results, while keyword-packed, are often laughably unreadable.
Whether it’s done manually or using an automatic approach, the goal is to change your content simply enough to trick the search engines’ duplicate content check.
Recent changes to search engines’ algorithms have made this ploy very easy to detect.
4. Link Farming
It is a group of websites whose content is nothing but lots of links that hyperlink to another website, in order to increase its search engine ranking.
This technique is completely black hat SEO and you have to completely avoid it.
Google has been become smarter to catch this type of website that uses link farming to increase its page rank and popularity.
Back in the day, this method was very popular but nowadays it’s completely forbidden.
