We looked at personal blocking violations last week. These blocking elements have a negative impact on your SEO WordPress blog. Today we are going to quickly build on that and look at Trust Blocking.
It’s bad enough that people don’t see any value in your site that they feel the necessity to block your site from showing in the SERPs, but what makes it worse is that now the search engines have reason to believe that your site is not trustworthy.
Having your site blocked by people can make the search engines think that your website is spam and give it a ranking penalty or worse. Obviously, if you are not seen in the search engines it is impossible for anyone to find you.
Give users high-quality pages. Take time to provide valuable content that are easily accessible and that users will want to visit.
