  2. 2. Bad SEO doesn’t help. It hurts your website and it hurts your potential. Have you been a victimof bad SEO?Have you paid money for someone to help you dominate the search engines but really, it hasn’thelped? You’re not the first to be duped by a fly-by-night SEO company who is happy to takeyour money but doesn’t bother to produce results that are worthwhile. Here are some signsyou’ve had bad SEO:Signs of Bad SEO Your traffic is flat or non-existent. Search engine optimisation is supposed to bring you new traffic and it should climb steadily. If it hasn’t, it hasn’t been done properly. Your bounce rate is pretty high. This is a sign that people landing on your site aren’t finding what they’re expecting so they don’t stay and this can hurt your rankings as well as leave you frustrated. Your traffic does nothing. Sure, you get traffic in but almost no one converts. The SEO you’ve had done hasn’t amounted to achieve desired results because the traffic is not targeted enough. Your web traffic reports are puzzling. Many of your incoming links are not relevant to your website. Have you been the victim of bad backlinking? Not all SEO companies backlink properly. Not all links are created equally! Your web copy reads poorly. It’s keyword optimised but not very impressive. Your hindsight feels like 20/20 now. You think back to the promises made and the sales pitch and feel like you’ve been taken for a ride. You aren’t experiencing that boost in sales you thought your SEO investment would bring you.©2009, Oracle Digital Page | 1
