  • 56. Worst Practices• Do you have pop-ups on your site?• Do you use “click here” or any other superfluous copy for your hyperlink text?• Do you have superfluous text like “Welcome to” at the beginning of your title tags?• Do you have any hidden or small text meant only for the search engines?• Do you engage in “keyword stuffing”?• Do you repeatedly submit your site to the search engines?• Do you incorporate your competitors’ brand names in your meta tags?• Do you have duplicate pages with minimal or no changes?• Are you submitting to (“Free For All”) link pages and farms?
