SEO Myth - Don't use Javascript

This entry is the first of what will be an ongoing series I will write aimed at clearing up a lot of the confusion and "voodoo" behind Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

There is a lot of misinformation behind SEO techniques with some people thinking that SEO specialists have exclusive access to insider knowledge.

A lot of illogical or unfeasible "myths" for search engine optimisation have sprung up and have become false common knowledge.

The main issue with these myths are that you can land up paying for services based on misinformation and deny the use of useful technologies on your websites.
