Use the same color text on your page as the page's background
color. This has often been used to keyword stuff a web page. Search engines can
detect this and view it as spam.
Use multiple instances of the same tag. For example, using more
than one title tag. Search engines can detect this and view it as spam.

Submit the same page to any engine more than once within 24hrs.
Use any keywords in your keywords meta tag that do not directly
relate to the content of your page.
