Quite possibly the easiest mistake to make when putting up new pages on your website is to create low-quality pages. From pages with links strewn about to pages with little to no content, Google can’t do anything with them!

Are your pages considered low quality? Here’s a quick checklist to tell if Google will like your page:

  • Does my content read like it was meant for robots and not for humans?
  • Is my content riddled with links that make it look like a spammy page?
  • Is my page made up primarily of only images or are there actual words on the page?
  • Is my page full of flash or frames? In other words, is my content stuck inside something Google can’t read?

If you can answer yes to any of these questions, there’s a good chance Google already slapped your page with a drop in rankings.

Until next time!
