    Many times a simple misplacement of a punctuation mark can turn a URL into a bad link. Sometimes you want to end a sentence with a URL such as “for more information, please visit example.com . The period at the end of the sentence can turn the URL into a broken link which is why we always make sure there is an extra space between the URL and the period.

    Really nice graphics. Such true facts presented in colourful graphical way to drive the idea home on bad SEO procedures . And pretty good rhyming too. It is really an eye opener on what things are to be avoided for overall good SEO marketing practices. I personally agree and like the parts about duplicate content, neglected social media and indexing problem.
