    Thanks.

    Keyword Stuffing
    - Over use of multiple keywords in an effort to cover every possible search querie. It doesn't work and Google penalizes you for the effort.
    Too broad, general keywords- Some people think it is better to throw a general net and see what you come up with. It isn't. It's better to use the correct bait to attract the specific fish that you are trying to catch.
    Doing nothing - Pretty self explanatory.
    Link building services- Can get your URL banned from Google and other search engines. Can cost you your affiliate or ad account. And link building services are nothing but spammers that attack comment sections, forums, and multi user sites to place your link.
    Using the same keywords and description for every page in your site.- Every page isn't exactly alike, so they shouldn't have the same SEO information.
    Misspellings, bad diction- You can't rank for anything if you can't spell or create proper sentence structure.

    That's all I have for now.

    Here's one. Posting overly generic questions on forums so you can get a signature link. Something you seem to be doing all over the web.

    Thanks for leaving that in VG! It made me laugh.

    I pretty much ignore a post that is someone's first and doesn't contain a genuine introduction with at least a few details.

    I recognized the generic question as a typical ploy to get signature links so I did some searching. If you search on the username you'll see a variety of unrelating forums each with a single generic question posted by the same user.
