Not too long ago, you may have started noticing a lot of pages in Google search results that don’t really look like they should be there. These results lead to a blog post, but the “post” is actually just an image with the associated alt text.

If you’ve seen them in the past, it’s likely because of another plugin, or lack thereof, making them visible.These pages exist on WordPress by default, but they aren’t meant to really be visible to the web at large.

And as Rand Fishkin so astutely recognized, there is strong incentive for someone to defend a myth if they had advanced that myth previously to a public audience, boss, client, etc. It’s … [Read more...] about SEO Myths Reloaded: Clarifications, Consensus And Controversy
