    I read 10 of them then stopped. It's pretty good article if you reverse each sentence. Or they can call it " Don't believe these Guru S*** talking about SEO " :D

    He is talking as if he owns google... duh. Everything is a myth for him and he himself gives a suggestion on moving websites at the beginning of the article which also is a myth to me.

    Agreed, this article is also saying some stuff I DEFINITELY don't agree with. Noobs should take this "guru advice" with a nice heap of salt...

    Empirically measured data contradicts about 10% of this list. If you have seen my posts you probably know I don't care what is or isn't a factor just as long as there is data to support it. This article falls for the bias that if it sounds really logical, reasonable, and sensible then it must be true. Unfortunately thats not how Google works.

    I think the article could have focused more on live case studies supported by raw data and real-time screenshots than debunking myths with rational and logic.

    Its sometimes quite difficult to distinguish between a myth and a reality as far as SEO goes, you only learn when you actually trying doing things.

    Interesting read...However point No 114 in that list seems to be not really true.."SEO and inbound marketing don’t mix" Both of these are sides of a coin and their final goal is same and there is a lot of overlap between them.

    Hah, that's the blog of the guy who was "flaming" me here in an another thread. I believe you can make your own opinion:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/i...-after-last-update.917258/page-3#post-9787821

    The poing 2 already made me laugh:

    That's like, I quote myself: "Don't use cars. Sure, they will get you from point A to B much faster, but there are so many accidents and you can get yourself killed, so instead of learning how to drive properly, you should go on foot."

    Didn't read all the 116 points, but some of what he has mentioned is not myth.
