8 SEO Myths You Need to Know

Listen Now

SEO (or Search Engine Optimization) hasn’t been around all that long– its humble beginnings date back to 1997, to be precise– but a lot has changed in its short lifetime. What worked yesterday may not work today and likely won’t tomorrow– an undeniable trope of SEO. Yet, there still remain eCommerce business-damaging misconceptions: SEO myths.

On this episode, I am joined by Espo, who appeared previously on the 2022 eCommerce Marketing Trends episode of the podcast. We discussed 8 SEO myths, debunked them, and offered some helpful advice to eCommerce business owners.

5 SEO Myths We Discussed (and Dismissed)

  1. Keyword stuffing improves ranking
  2. Content quality doesn’t matter
  3. Growth comes on quickly (going “viral,” etc.)
  4. Ranking #1 on Google is the only ranking that matters
  5. Keyword research isn’t important

How many instances of keyword or query usage are too many? How does content play into the other ranking factors that affect SEO? What’s the difference between informational and transactional search intent? Are all backlinks good?

You’ll have to give the episode a listen to discover the other 3 common SEO myths and the answers to these above questions among many more you have (and trust me: you don’t want to miss out on any of this)!

Listen closely and see if you’ve been holding onto any “facts” about SEO that don’t hold water. You might be surprised. And, if we somehow missed any of your questions or concerns on SEO, feel free to reach out to us as we are happy to answer them!
