Targeted Web Traffic Techniques That Can Get You Banned

     If the title ever gives you a hint of possibly being able to escape the consequences of unethical targeted web traffic techniques, make that: "that will get you banned". Black Hat SEO is too risky of a process to getting targeted traffic to your site.

But there are some amateurs out there whose knowledge of search engine optimization is still unripe, that may willingly and unknowingly commit these mistakes. So here are some of the techniques that can get you banned, even though you're only doing your best to obtain a first place position in the search engines.

Meta Tag Stuffing. Meta tags play a great role in making your website search engine optimized. When your meta tags contains keywords or key phrases that are specifically targeted by certain website surfers, you have a distinct advantage. Of course, there are other issues that must be dealt with in order for your website to be listed in the uppermost search results.

Meta tags aren't visible to web viewers. However, its use is highly important in giving directions to search engines whenever a search is performed because they classify your website as relevant to a search if, partially, your site's meta tags contain the search keywords or phrases.

The abuse of meta tags occurs when they're being stuffed with keywords for the sake of SEO, instead of featuring quality content that realistically describes what the website or blog is about. So be careful not to overstuff your meta tags with keywords. Quality (not quantity) should always be first.

Alt Image Tag Stuffing. This is similar to meta tag stuffing, the only difference is that the practice is being done to the alt image tags. All images on a web page can have alt tag counterparts. If your computer can view the images, you probably won't see them. However, you'll see them if you hover over the images or try to copy the entire website content and paste them in a word or notepad document, or view the page source.

Alt tags also replace the images whenever a website reader's computer can't load the website graphic. Alt tags are abused whenever they're stuffed with keywords that aren't really appropriate to describe the images but which are used so the search engine crawlers recognize the availability of the words on your pages (which partially reflects on the relevance of your page to a search). So you might get targeted traffic because of the presence of specific keywords on your page, but then your website quality may not deserve it.

Title Tag Stuffing. This is similar to the first two unethical techniques mentioned above. The title of your website should reflect only what your website is about. The title serves as your website identity. If you fake it through keywords that have nothing to do with your website content, or if you make the keywords repetitive that the message makes no sense, then it's clearly a black hat technique. You should never obtain targeted traffic through the methods indicated above. The grave consequences will greatly affect you in the long run, and for an extended period of time.
