So, the general guidelines are: One backlink = one vote; but the guidelines are not written for beginners. A beginner in SEO would be surprised by how strict the guidelines are; and there’s nothing to surprise him with as far as most of the general guidelines are concerned. The basics are based on good quality content, link building and keyword density. The basics are very similar to what a beginner can expect in a marketing content expert forum.
One thing that is significant in the general guidelines is the problem of backlinks. The main thing to remember is that not all backlinks are good. When a page is viewed, it is possible that a competitor may have used it to increase his own ranking in search engine result pages (SERPs). This is something that should be taken into consideration when setting up links. It is important to understand that you do not need to pay a lot of money for a link to rank well, and pay as little as possible for it to be effective. You may, however, also seek to get links from other pages or groups of sites as this is more useful than having links from your website.
You may be puzzled by the fact that you have been using black hat SEO for a while. The general guidelines also state that when you use black hat SEO, you should not use any out-of-date technique and should not have links that lead to spamming sites. Most of the guidelines say that you should not even aim to rank number one in the first page of search engines. If you will read the guidelines carefully, you may notice that it also includes something about keyword density. It also says that to attain the rank of one of the most popular search engines, you should have at least 1% of your keywords in the title, Meta tags and in the content.
