SEO spam includes excessive keyword stuffing, irrelevant backlinks, and hidden text. Basically, it's like trying to sneak in loads of keywords or links that don't really make sense or add value. Search engines aren't fans of these sneaky tactics! Keep it natural and relevant for better SEO results.
