    What do you think are the 2 biggest mistakes that Internet Marketers perform in today's time?

    Here goes my list:

    1. Using Spun Content (Some still ask questions like will this "content generator" work)
    2. Heavily depending on one link strategy (Be it white or black or gray)

    What's yours? Let's create a list of mistakes :D

    Relying entirely on IM in order to live.

    As for mistakes in SEO:

    1. Buy fiverr packages as tier 1 thinking they are better just because they pay less.
    2. Buying "micro-niche" sites thinking they will bank with no SEO investment.
    3. Thinking the world is fair.

    There are many.

    But if you ask 2, I would say

    1. Not optimising the webpage mobile friendly
    2. Not making the data/info in a structured format.

    1. Wasting time trying to rank for free/cheaply

    2. Wasting time reading white hat techniques

    the only mistake is not trying any idea even if it looks stupid
    even if people said it's old or wrong

    nobody can say this is not working or this is working
    it's up the person itself, any idea could work if you develop it

    I rely completely on IM to live and have been doing so for several years now - yes there are still no guarantees in this game but its definitely not a "mistake".

    2. Not acting on @bartosimpsonio crypto advice in a timely manner ;)

    I am doing that too and I consider it being a mistake though. I went through faculty and now I am doing a masters degree but still have 0 work experience (this is the mistake I guess).

    Believing that you'll get rich quick by copying someone else's method.

    Believing that you'll see results without investing something (be it money or time).
