Search Engine Optimization Lies & Misconceptions
In a perfect world, everyone would be honest.

When I was in the sandbox (and I don't mean the Google Sandbox) my mother taught me to be sure my information comes from the horse's mouth. That's still good advice today.
Which are lies and which are misconceptions?
Who knows? Did the SEO (search engine optimizer) actually read Google's Guidelines? Is it old advice that hasn't been updated for years?

I am not an "SEO" - I do not offer SEO services. I'm a website designer that believes designers should understand search engines since they're creating the pages that search engines will be indexing. I know that if a search engine optimizer promises you good ranking and violates search engine policies to get them, it's your site that will be removed from Google. Not theirs. You need to know that, too.
