5.1. Thin Content

5.1.1. What Is It? Little or no original content for example

5.1.2. Why it's bad Google and other search engines main goal is to, "give their users the most relevant search results and provide the best user experience" having pages on the Internet that have little or no original content gives the Search user a very bad experience on the Internet and it also reverts online space to a highly spammy, irrelevant and unreliable place to hang out

5.2. Keyword Stuffing

5.2.1. Using a very high keyword-to-content ratio What Is It? "If using 1 or 2 keywords is good, then using 100 keywords is even better" - WRONG! Even worse: keyword stuffing using keywords that are no way related to your main topic Why is it bad? it's physically difficult and unnatural for users to read and annoys the hell out of users too = bad user experience

5.2.2. Hidden Keywords What is it? hiding keywords underneath pictures or fancy design making keywords the same color as your background color Why it's bad you're explicitly loading your page with keywords to dupe the search engines

5.3. Link Schemes

5.3.1. What Is It? using links intended to manipulate PageRank Links to web spammers or bad neighborhoods on the web buying and selling links that pass on PageRank (Paid links) Excessive reciprocal links or excessive link exchanging

5.3.2. Why it's bad Google and other search engines work very hard to keep their organic search results and paid search results separate from each other If the manipulation of relevancy, quality & popularity were allowed, there wouldn't be any useful content on the Internet. Users of Google would get search results that are of no use or merit since PageRank would be sold to the highest bidder using "black-hat" SEO techniques. the Internet we all have come to know and love in the 21st century would revert to the wild wild west era it was in in the 90s.

5.4. Duplicate Content

5.4.1. What Is It? In some cases, content is deliberately duplicated across many websites in an attempt to manipulate search engine rankings or to gain more traffic back to a website.

5.4.2. Why it's bad The last thing Google wants is to give their users a bad experience and deceptive practices like this can result in a very unhappy Google search user, when they see substantially the same content repeated over and over again within a set of search results. In cases in which Google perceives that duplicate content exists with intent to manipulate page rankings and deceive Google users, Google will make appropriate adjustments in their indexing and ranking of the sites involved. As a result, the ranking of the site may suffer, or the site might be removed entirely from the Google index, in which case it will no longer appear in search results.

5.5. Giving search engines a completely different content than human visitors

5.5.1. Doorway Pages What is it? Web pages created outside of your website that are designed to point traffic to a page on your website Pages on your website created just for search engines and not users, optimized for 1 or 2 keywords with the intent of getting higher page rank also known as Why it's bad? doorway pages tend to frustrate users It's important to note... doorway pages are a relic of old SEO practices from a time when the Internet wasn't that regulated some Internet Marketing companies still practice the use of doorway pages

5.5.2. Cloaking What Is It? Specifically singling out Search Engine Spiders like Googlebot, and serving them different content than what human visitors get with the intent of getting a higher search engine page rank. Why it's bad Googlebot crawls a website and thinks its about disney characters But when a person goes to your site, they see porn very bad user experience

5.5.3. Sneaky JavaScript redirects What is it? When Googlebot indexes a page containing JavaScript, it will index that page but it may not follow or index any links hidden in the JavaScript itself. Use of JavaScript is an entirely legitimate web practice. However, use of JavaScript with the intent to deceive search engines is not. Why is it bad? it displays different content for users (who see the fancy JavaScript-based text) than for search engines (which see the noscript-based text) so that it can embed a link in the JavaScript code that redirects the user to a different page When a redirect link is embedded in JavaScript, the search engine indexes the original page rather than following the link, whereas users are taken to the redirect target. Like cloaking, this is deceptive because it displays different content to users and to Googlebot, and can take a visitor somewhere other than where they intended to go.

5.6. Blocking

5.6.1. What is it? When someone blocks your website from their search results When there are a lot of people who block your website from their search results.

5.6.2. Why is it bad? When you're blocked by 1 or more people, Google interprets that as you giving their users a bad experience
