    Content theft: This is first on my list. A lot of bloggers just steal other peoples work and expect to rank on the web. It just doesn’t work and it is unfair.

    Avoid duplicate content like a plague. It kills.

    Good question. Some of the major SEO mistakes that can affects your websites visibility as a newbie are:

    • Slow page loading.
    • Poor Internal Linking of blog posts
    • Not Guest posting. This is really important for building backlinks
    • Neglecting Nairaland, Facebok, TrustOrRun and other platforms that you can use to drive traffic.
    • Non catchy/attractive post titles.

    Remember, SEO is a long term Strategy. You can’t bring result in one day.
